Breakfast with Books a Success!

Our Breakfast with Books openhouse was a huge success! The library was brimming with students before school who enjoyed a light breakfast as they browsed our new books. And the best news is ... 94 books were checked-out within 1/2 hour!

This was also the first day of our school-wide Inpendent Reading period which was also a great success. Our principal reports that "you could have heard a pin drop"!

"I can hear the insects buzz..."

walk across the courtyard, towards the library.
i can hear the insects buzz and the leaves 'neath my feet...

ramble up the stairwell, into the hall of books...
since we got the interweb these hardly get used.

I heard the new song, Librarian, by My Morning Jacket this weekend on the WXPN. The above opening lyrics seem so appropriate as we continue to make plans for our new courtyard. The top soil has been delivered and seed will go down soon. Vic Lance took me around Feeney's Nursery on Friday and showed me various plants which we can consider throughout the area. Soon we will draw up the plans for the first landscape installment.
If all goes as planned, we will have plants in bloom outside our library by this coming Spring as well as patio seating.
