This week at the library; or, fakewinterblues

One of my Rock 'n' Read book club attendees created
a model London Eye, after we read Siobhan Dowd's
The London Eye Mystery
What's happening in my head and at the library
  • Monday
    • Read with Pearl (cancelled)
    • Oy. Packing outreach baskets, sending out emails, meetings, meetings, planning, crazy. On top of all that it's not even snowing! And I can see the grass!
  • Tuesday
    • Toddlers 'n' Books (2 sessions) (Pattie)
    • Bookaneers
    • Everyone was expecting vast amounts of snow. It rained. It slushed. It iced. I am disappointed. A fairly large group came to book club anyways though.
  • Wednesday
    • Winter Wigglers: Dance Party
    • Lakeland outreach tour (Jess)
    • It snowed for, like, 5 minutes. While I was walking to the car OF COURSE. Vast amounts of paperwork were tackled today.
  • Thursday
    • Books 'n' Babies
    • Messy Art Club: Valentines
    • Tap to Play
    • Eh. Everything was just kind of meh. Kids had fun making Valentines and Pattie and I discussed the woes of the world while cutting up cardboard squares since nobody came to Tap to Play
  • Friday
    • No kids programs, but I came in late b/c I was supervising the knit-in until 10pm. Very busy last few hours of the day!
