We have had quite a week of Holiday Happenings at the Richmond Memorial Library this week. I hope everyone had a chance to join in the fun! We kicked off the week with our family ornament making night, had a few drop-in storytimes, danced our way through the middle of the week with the Nutcracker program and ended it on Friday with games, stories, and a craft with Ms. Eileen, me, and 3o of our storytime alumni. (I wish I could name you all, but just know that you are awesome!)
Many thanks to Friends of the Library whose generous fund-raising helped us sponsor the wonderful Holiday Happenings. Also thank you to Maria Grove who shared the Nutcracker with a crowd of tutu clad children. Thank you to our kind and generous page-extraordinaire Nancy M. who helped Eileen and I provide a safe, fun Not-Too-Old-For-Storytime event, as well as to the mothers who helped corral children at the school and accompany us to the library.
And, as always, thanks to our fearless leader Nancy Wood who enthusiastically and cheerfully signs off on the many wacky ideas that Ms. Eileen and I present her. I hope our patrons know that few library directors would be so supportive of the out-of-the-box ideas that Mrs. Wood is. Somehow she find the money in our tight budget to fund programs that bring smiles to the faces of our patrons, and to Ms. Eileen and me as well. If you or your family enjoyed any of our Holiday Happenings be sure to thank Library Director Nancy Wood.
