L’s celebration is for LIBRARY WEEK

Friday, April 13th: Two days left! L’s celebration is for LIBRARY WEEK, from April 8th to the 14th. I’ve had a library addiction for most of my life. Books, books and more books; it’s a paradise, filled with millions of pages of printed words. Books for every subject or genre you can think of. Stories to take you away to other worlds and lands, books that teach you (landscaping, interior design, writing, cooking, crafting, automotive … almost anything you can think of), and even books that take you back in time. And they’re FREE … all FREE! It sure helps keep my Barnes and Noble ‘habit’ under control.

Libraries have expanded their collections and most now also stock audio books and DVD’s. Sometimes there’s a $1 or $2 fee for those, but that’s still a nominal amount. Libraries offer a variety of ways to connect with your children. View this page for good family bonding ideas at the library. http://atyourlibrary.org/connectwithyourkids.

K’s celebration is for KNUFFLE BUNNY TOO. It’s DROP EVERYTHING & READ DAY

Thursday, April 12th: “Trixie was excited because she was taking her one-of-a-kind Knuffle Bunny someplace very special.” K’s celebration is for KNUFFLE BUNNY TOO. It’s DROP EVERYTHING & READ DAY. Now we’re talking. Drop everything and read; that is MY kind of day! This celebration is perfectly timed since I stopped at the library to return some books this afternoon … and of course, came home with a few new ones. With little ones out of the house, I don’t have any Knuffle Bunny books sitting around to stop and read. But there is a stack of un-read books sitting here staring me in the face. Errands be-gone. Chores be-gone. I’ve got some celebrating (and reading) to do!
