A GREAT DAY!

Welcome to a new Monday. Hope you had a super weekend. It's cold today, with a 13 mph wind. I'm staying in the house after we got home from church.

Yesterday was an exciting day. We had a book and craft event at Tom Burnett Memorial Library.  Our librarian does such a great job with events like this. Every space downstairs and upstairs was filled. From food to all sorts of lovely handmade products were available, along with books.


The Library!

I sold more books than I expected and also gave away a couple of titles that no longer are in print. 
Some of the money raised will go for good causes, like gifts for children at Christmas.
Such fun.

Wish you were there, but hope you had a super weekend too.

Must get organized. Ha, ha.

    1. It really was a great day, Karin. The library once was a home, the reason it's called Tom Burnett Library. He left town, or something. Don't remember the story. I'm happy with the sales. Have a super week.

    1. You bet, Pat. I hope young readers enjoy their new books. I'm ready for another event. I doubt our librarian is.

    1. Our head librarian is great at supporting the authors and other groups in town. She always has something going on. The library in Wichita Falls had a book signing a while back that was a flop. No one knew about it except the authors. You have to get the word out. It's not easy.
