It looks like the spider that took over the Park Hill book drop is sticking around for Thanksgiving. We fed him a turkey to see if that would satisfy him but he's still hungry. We'll see if we can get him out by Christmas.
One of the best things about the Summer of Reading program is that you have the opportunity to talk to kids and see the impact of the books and programs that we offer. One young customer that I had the opportunity to meet this summer was Ava who will be in 1st grade next year.
Ava came up to the Reference Desk and asked if she could sing me a song. I replied, “Of course, I would love for you to sing me a song.” Not only did Ava sing the song, but she also signed the alphabet while singing. I was truly impressed. Kidding around with her, I asked her if she had a CD out yet. Ava ran over to her Mom and said, “Mommy, do I have a CD?” and her mom and I both shared a laugh.
