READ ACROSS AMERICA WEEK 2016


     I'm just going to dump these pictures here, and assume they're mostly self-explanatory. Basically, I'm so over Dr. Seuss as a theme for Read Across America Week, so I'm doing Alice In Wonderland, and using the Cheshire Cat wearing the Mad Hatter's Hat as a "different cat in a different hat."

(All artwork by yours truly)





     The Nonfiction section is now the Tulgey Wood...


     And look what's lurking at the back...


     The Jabberwock! (The lighting in this photo makes it a little hard to see, but in person the drawing is more visible)


     On Friday our Alumni Association is hosting an Author Forum of Alumni Authors, and we're inviting everyone back to the library afterward for a Mad Tea Party Reception. Hence, the paper lanterns.


     All week long we have daily activities and/or contests. I'll post more pictures and details later. I even have prizes to give out. :)


     This easel is positioned just outside the library door, with these fancy "ultra-shape" balloons that cost $6.00 each and are supposed to last all week but dammit if some turd didn't steal one, poke a hole in another, and leave only the blue one intact. And this is just the FIRST DAY.
     But it's a learning experience. Next year I will fill the balloons with napalm.
