This week at the library; or, Back to work!

This is a sad shelf
What's going on; in my head and at the library
  • We're back to the full push of summer this week! The local summer camp/school visited twice. On their official visit on Wednesday I gave them cutouts to make superheroes. We had a smaller group at Lego Club - people enjoying the fine weather and pool while they can probably.
  • Friday was rather exhausting. I worked in the children's gardens and we have reached 943 in summer reading sign-ups.

  • Vampire Kisses manga - no more, so I showed some of the other things we had.
  • Choose your own adventure type books - I showed them Twisted Journeys, original choose your own adventure, and Can you survive but they were all a little too scary. Then I remembered we had some Club Penguin Pick Your Path and those were perfect.
  • "the dog book" after staring blankly into space I suddenly remembered it was a Disney Palace Pets book she was asking for. Yay me! I may not remember my own name, but I remember a book I saw for 30 seconds last week...
