October 5

October 5, 2017

Every Thursday, you’ll get this short, fun, relevant newsletter. It will contain a quote or smile about the library and those who love it, an idea you can use to promote your library or reading in general, and an occasional shameless plug for the programs I offer. Enjoy!

If you are new to us or have missed any previous issues, you can read them all at And, please; tell your friends about it!

In this issue:
Library Laugh
That’s a Great Idea!
It’s not too early…


“If you are planning for a year, sow rice; if you are planning for a decade, plant trees; if you are planning for a lifetime, educate people.” -Chinese Proverb

“A good book is an education of the heart. It enlarges your sense of human possibility what human nature is of what happens in the world. It’s a creator of inwardness.” — Susan Sontag

Library Laughs

That’s a Great Idea!

Kelly Knoll shared this idea:

When we receive new books I hang pictures of the books and the book blurb up in the hallways for the students to see. They see that we are getting new titles and might see something that brings them into the media center.

Thanks Kelly!

It’s not too early…

Arctic Express is an assembly program that teaches students about winter holiday all over the world. I’d love to come to your school and share this educational, fun and wonder-filled show for your kids. Go to, click on programs and read all about it!

See you next week!
