New Look to the Website!!!!

After many, many hours the website has been updated and uploaded. It was a nerve-wracking experience as I went to hit the "publish" button and erase all the old material and replace it with the new stuff.
Thankfully only a few tweaks were needed (so far!) and everything worked the way it should.

Here's a couple of links to some nice articles on the site if you have not seen them yet. Just click on the pictures below to read the whole thing.

While doing all this, I have learned quite a few things about computer stuff in general, including how to take a snapshot of a webpage and then turn it into a picture that can be uploaded. I enjoy working on website design, although the lack of sleep with two kids 3 and under catches up to you after being up all night several nights in a row designing and editing things.

Now everyone go back over to the main website and explore and let me know if you find any strange things that need to be corrected.

Have fun!

Summer Reading 2011 Right Around the Corner!

Greetings Everyone!
The end of the school year is upon us and it's just a few weeks away from the hectic (for me at least!) summer schedule. The new show is coming along nicely and it goes along with the "One World, Many Stories" theme. I'll be pulling out some classics of magic for this program - some of which have been around for thousands and thousands of years. While we are at it, we'll also learn all about their different countries of origin - including ancient Egypt and China.

This year's show will also feature a brand new comedy escape - something in a humorous way connected to my "Almost World Famous" straitjacket escape - you'll have to come to one of my library stops this summer to see it! Either that, or wait until the upcoming school year to witness the hilarity.

Also, I am excited to inform you all that we are possibly going to have a new snake added to the family. Recently one of our snakes laid an egg and we managed to get it into an incubator pretty quickly and are now simply waiting and watching to see if it will hatch. They can take around 60 days to hatch - a fact that my 3 year old does not quite grasp. She asks me every day if the egg has hatched yet. If it does hatch, we shall name the little snake Nemo.

Hope to see everyone this summer!
