You Belong @ Your Library!

Posted on

Just a reminder: National Library Week starts today!

Tonight we’ll be doing a Nighttime Story Time, starting at 6:30 PM, and we’ll be reading Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown, which is a classic, and one of our all time favorites.

Tomorrow, Tuesday, is also Library Worker Appreciation Day.You don’t have to give us a hug or say anything to us, but if you wanted to… Well, it would definitely be appreciated. Especially tomorrow. But it’s equally important for us that you know how much we appreciate you.

…which is part of why we’ll be holding an Open House on Wednesday from 11 AM to 1 PM, and we’ll have munchies and goodies laid out. This is just one of the ways we hope to thank you for your continued patronage and support, and we’d love to have you stop by and tell us how we can be of service to you.

On Wednesday, during our Open House, we’re very privileged to have Mr. Charles Woodward who will be here on behalf of NASA and the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, to display several samples of Lunar and Meteorite material.

It’s not totally accurate, but I’ve been joyously exclaiming, “Moon rocks!” since I heard this was happening.

We could not be more excited about this presentation, and it’ll really be something special for lovers of NASA, space exploration, the moon, and fans of the Apollo missions. And, if nothing else, I guess we’ll all finally find out if its made of cheese, right?

And Thursday will be Support Teen Literature Day, and all about young adults and some of their favorite books which, believe it or not, are not all about sad vampires that sparkle and mope around.

We hope you’ll spend the week with us.
