The Librarypalooza 2006

is over, almost. Whew. Well, it's over, but the post-palooza stuff (getting the last items to bidders, returning unsold items to donors, thank-you cards and calls, post-palooza review meeting, etc.) is not yet over. That's going to go on for quite a while. In the meantime, Kate, Margaret, and I are recovering from the main event, along with the other volunteers. We all got a bit crabby there for a while, but man, it was an EVENT! Great music and dance, lots of extremely nifty things, good dinner, hilarious fashion show, and, well, more fun than you can shake a stick at. We did really, really, well.

Now we just have to convince the ECA that having a library building in the village is really worth it. We've got a good chance (lots of support so far!), but it's not absolutely certain until the resolution is passed. Last year's resolution was more vague, and no money was changing hands for land or buildings at that time.

Hoo. I'm going to go crawl into bed now.

As someone with an MLS degree, I applaud what you're doing. Libraries always are on the short end of funding. Their contribution to society taken for granted.
