April is School Library month, and today, April 4, is School Librarian Appreciation Day. This is an opportunity to show your appreciation to your school librarians for all the work they do, and the role they play in a student's educational career.
If you are a school librarian, here are a few books MCPL has available as resources for you:
New season, new living room? If you didn't get that decorating project done before the winter holidays, don't fret. What better time than spring to refresh your home? Can't you just imagine a lovely blue for the dining room walls, updating your living room with some mid-century modern pieces (found at the thrift store!), or going all out with a bold orange for the family room?
Almost all of us here have pets. Most of us have dogs. There are a couple with cats and dogs, and one of us recently added a snake to their menagerie. That being said, we love them and shower them with treats and toys. And much to their chagrin, I am sure, we take them to the vet when they need medical attention. This week we have the unique opportunity to make cat toys and a rag chew toy for our dogs. Why don't you join us?
If you follow my blog posts, you know I have a tendency to be less than serious. In fact, I am often downright silly. But there is much more to life than bog-snorkelling and Momo-hunting. For once, I'd like to use this blog to make the world a better place. Let's take this time to bring attention to some very serious issues plaguing our world and our society.
The Kearney Branch will close on May 2, 2011 and reopen on May 16, 2011 for branch enhancements, including new carpeting. Please visit the Liberty Branch during this time.
Items placed on hold the week before the closing may not become available before the branch is closed. During this time, selecting a different pickup location than the branch that is closed would be advisable for items that are immediately available. If an item has a long waiting list, it will not be necessary to choose a different pickup location.
"So, what are your kids setting on fire for dinner tonight?"
That’s the joke around the library on Tuesday nights when I’m working and leave my kids at home to finish supper.
So far, two out of five attempts have ended in something permanently bonded to my best sauce pans. The smoke alarms were fully engaged. Then there was slightly blackened enchilada night. No, it wasn’t a Cajun recipe.
