Library’s Heart

The Silent Auction was tonight and we had a good turnout.  It warmed up to 18 degrees today, so everyone was loving the “heat wave” and ready to get out of the house!

I *DID* finish my Father Christmas… and I turned him into a stocking.  He didn’t fit the stretcher bars I had, and the stocking was perfect!

The library was *the* place to be tonight!

readerThere is NOTHING that warms a librarian’s heart more than seeing a child forget everything and fall into the pages of a good book!

Thanks to the people of Ten Sleep, who support our little library so well!  You are the heart of the library!

  1. How wonderful! Reminds me of the Library in the small town where I was raised. I was the boy on the floor with my face in a book. My Mom began working in that Library when I started high school and worked there for over twenty years.

  2. Father Christmas turned out exceptionally well! Great job. I’d love
    one, too, if you make them available.

    Glad your library benefitted from your wonderful artistic ability.
