News from the Library


First thing this morning, our secretary comes to the front desk and says, "Has anyone turned in the sign for the women's restroom?"

Yes, friends, neighbors, and countrymen... someone has STOLEN the women's restroom sign. If you see it wandering the streets aimlessly, please return it to the staff. We miss it.

A Cure for Parking Woes?

A patron called to renew some books. When I told I needed her library card number, she replied, "I'll have to call you back. It's in my car which I left in my purse."
Yep, would be handy for when the parking lot is full. Just push the button and stick your car in your purse til you are finished shopping.

You KNOW You're Getting Old When...

a book about David Cassidy is classified as "historical fiction."

At the Library Today

I had to call a patron to let them know a book had come in from them. When I asked for her, the person on the other end asked who was calling. I said, "This is the library. Is this her mother?"

"No, this is her brother."

Oops.

New Contest

Hi, all. Just wanted to let everyone know about a contest that's soon coming to an end: a chance to win seven Oscar winning movies from TCM. Just click on over to Ice Fairy's Treasure Chest and see what she has going on.

I'm hoping to win, because these would make an awesome addition to the DVD collection at my library!

So.. go check it out and enter (just as long as you promise not to win) ;-)

Happy New Year

Today is the day we in modern America (and other parts of the world) celebrate as the start of a new year-- a time to start afresh.

Traditionally, people make New Years resolutions...and soon break them. However, I'm going to be brave and do it again this year.

1. I want to exercise more and take advantage of the wonderful elliptical machine my husband bought me a few years ago.

2. I need to lose weight. Our oldest daughter is getting married in July and I don't want to look like a beached whale on the beach.

3. I plan to be more regular with my blogging and visiting my blog friends.

What about you? Any New Year Resolutions in store?
