What's Going on Outside the Library

Today is a very drippy day, but the leaves make a pretty carpet on our lawn. The flu has taken over the town and everything seems quiet (except for sneezing, coughing, and nose blowing). We had Halloween storytimes this week and tommorrow is trick or treating at the downtown business's. Hopefully everyone will be ready to don their costumes and enjoy the day.

Room With a View

I attended the Wisconsin Library Association Conference in Appleton last week. There are so many inspiring and creative librarians out there! Norma and I had a room with a lovely view, even though the weather was drippy and gray.

What Happens at the Library During the Night.....?

Stuffed Animal Sleepover

The sleepover guests were put to bed by their owners and we sang them a lullaby and kissed them goodnight.

Everything was peaceful…………..until……………………the five little monkeys started jumping on the bed!

You all know what happens when five little monkeys jump on the bed-----that’s right! Someone fell off and bumped their head.

Georgia took care of the bump on the head with a bandage and a lollipop.

The fun continued, the animals settled down, and a few started playing games, including a serious game of chess.

Others did puzzles,looked at DVD's, and then we played with toys and climbed the bridge.

Everyone wanted to surf the internet.

We decided to read a couple of bedtime stories and then Rosetta wanted to draw a picture for everyone.

It was time to settle down before bed, so Georgia suggested roasting some marshmallows and singing some campfire songs.

Then Georgia tucked everyone in (even the monkeys were tired!) and we all said goodnight.

Thank you for a fun evening : )

Flower, vegetable, or mineral?

My friend gave me some beautiful vegetables from her garden this fall. Peppers are some of my faves, especially the red ones! This one just looks like a jewel. I ate it fresh but love roasted vegs,too.
