Dr. Seuss' Birthday!
Today's a fun day in the library! It's Dr. Seuss' birthday and we had a parade, watched my favorite Dr. Seuss story, The Sneetches, we did some finger puppet "make believe" and then played a game of Seuss Charades! Enjoy!

Happy Women's Herstory (not HIStory) Month! I've often discussed the "glows-n-grows" of being a woman, therefore, I will keep my thoughts brief.

I'm excited to share what's going on this month in the library. Yes, the newsletter below is a "call to action," but even more importantly, it's time to love your librarian! If People Magazine can celebrate our 2 AWESOME Texas Librarians (Yay, Carolyn and Becky!) making strides to keep students at the center of their book-choice selections for their own development and curiosities regarding their love of reading, then so can you! Meet all of the Texas Librarians you can this month at the Texas Library Association's Annual Conference in Austin , April 19-22, 2023.

Yes, it's a wee-bit long, but it's OUR LIBRARY MONTH, and everything is on the line in
