Well, another Friday’s upon us. Hope you all have some fun plans for the weekend. Summer is just slipping right on by, isn’t it? This weekend, I’m planning a visit to the Jefferson County Fair. It’s a great way to catch up on friends & see all the wonderful things that go on in our little part of the world.
And I found the perfect thing to wear @ the Olycap Thrift shop. Not one, but TWO cowboy shirts with pearl snap buttons. I think I’ll wear the one with the gold threads… I know I”m supposed to be decluttering, but pearl snap buttons…
Here’s some silly stuff to get your weekend started:
I guess I should confess first of all, that I’m probably a librarian at heart. And certainly a power-patron. I have 3 current library cards- Pt Townsend, Shenandoah County & San Miguel de Allende. Some of the best times of my last year have been volunteering @ libraries. In fact, I noticed that right after I moved to Pt Townsend, the circulation statistics were way up- it made the front page! (Slow news wk, I guess…)
The library is an old Carnegie building, so it has a lot of charm, if not a lot of room. But they cooperate with the Jefferson County library, based in Pt Hadlock, so the collection is much larger than is apparent.
I know that most libraries have the cool on-line catalog, so that you can look up a book/CD/DVD & reserve it. I love walking in, showing my card & picking up a stack of books they’ve held for me. Almost as much as browsing the shelves & finding something it never would have occurred to me to order.
PT’s library has some extra goodies, though, thanks to the tireless volunteers and Friends. Many people come to PT for a short stay, so the library has rounders of paperbacks with pink stickers. They are donated books, and don’t even need to be checked out, just returned eventually. There’s also a rack of $1 cheap reads, and a bin of recent (donated) magazines to read, collage, whatever.
There are also no fines @ the PT library (for books- DVD’s are another matter), but there’s a conscience bank, so that you can fine yourself.
My latest library discovery is that with just a library card, I can sign up for Mango language lessons, so I’m working on my Spanish. Thanks, library!
What’s your favorite library service/hack?
