TRAIN 2/20

Krissy was in a good mood this week. She bought a black t-shirt she liked, then went back and bought four more. We love Krissy. :D

Krissy’s birthday is next Saturday!

Collection Development: we have bought more books! If you have more suggestions, e-mail them. If you have movie ideas, send them also. For YA, it has to be PG-13 or below.

Book Club: We would love for you to come to book club, even if it’s just for a few minutes!

Mardi Gras: March 1, 6-8. The tickets are free, but you need to get your ticket! Talk to your friends and get them to come! We need volunteers to “help set up” which really means hang out. so why would you say no?

Video Sales: We have waaaay to many video TAPES. No seriously. We’re going to be selling them on March 25-27th

“Make Waves at your Library!” is the theme for SRP. We need artwork. Get inspired. We’re really liking dark heather grey with white writing. So start drawing.

Caron Day (Lock In)—April 10th We all love Caron so much that we planned an entire event around his returning to America for the weekend… But our numbers need to go up, and we need to bring a friend. We need to think about what kind of food we want to eat. leave a comment. 6-foot sub? sushi? Chinese food? pbj and goldfish. We also need movies: It may be the last over-12-year-old lock in… so let’s find a good movie? But nothing that will scare Krissy.

Everyone needs to join Jim Chittick Survivor so that Jim can be on Survivor!

SRP begins on June 14th!

Next meeting: MARCH 20TH
