Tote that tome!

This morning, before heading off to work more on the ridiculously bright curtains I've been making with Amy's help, I updated the John Trigg Ester Library website. Kate Billington (the same person who's been teaching me to knit) came up with a great idea for maintaining the library:

Once a month, same day of the month, the JTEL will hold a "Love Your Library Soup & Stow" (or a Stew & Shelve) get-together for library volunteers and wannabe helpers. The idea is that members of the library board will bring something to eat and drink, such as soup and crackers and hot tea, and whoever wants to come help reshelve books or catalog new donations or vacuum the floor or whatever else needs doing can come down and have guidance and company for a couple of hours, and get fed for their trouble.

The first one will be a three-day affair, 2 p.m. on Feb. 24, 25, & 26th. The next month, March, will be the Lallapalooza on the 26th, but after that, every month, the 26th will be a regular excuse to tidy the library and get together with fellow bibliophiles.
