From the Librarian's Shelf...
Wednesday, November 7, 2012 • Posted November 7, 2012

Our first grandchild was born on October 23, so I wasn’t able to be here for our Open House that evening. I want to especially thank Nancy Scholibo and Isabel Galindo for coming to the rescue and helping to make the evening a success. I’ve had much positive feedback and appreciate everyone who came. Hopefully, I’ll see you in the library again having a cup of coffee or cocoa, checking out a good book, magazine, movie, a CD book, or even using Rosetta Stone, the copy machine, or the FAX.
