This week at the library; or, Third week of summer

I was taking pictures at Mad Scientists
Club and saw this Red Admiral on the
column. So, have a butterfly.
What's going on; in my head and at the library
  • The weather was weird, my garden got slugged again, but a gazillion people came to the library, I got licked by a friendly Great Dane and it was all awesome.
  • Lest you think that my library looks like it did in all those pictures of cool displays at the beginning of summer, I include what we now look like at the halfway point below. Actually it looks rather worse, but I took pictures after we'd been shelving and tidying for several hours.

The U keeps falling off. Gotham is definitely due for some urban renewal soon...

This is our 3rd? 4th? cover in less than two weeks

The phone booth is holding on valiantly, but I foresee a total collapse coming soon...

We lost track of stars for every name somewhere around 700 and then somebody sat on some of them....

The shelves are bare

The superhero hideout has been attacked by super villains. We took off the tower to start over.

Most of my little character stickers have fallen off, due to humidity and eager fingers

Locusts have ravaged all the shelves

The window is leaking

Book bundles are flying off the shelves faster than we can refill them

This is actually fairly tame - yesterday every single toy was out and spread across the floor

Little fingers found a rip...

The sign up box is showing signs of wear and tear...
