Morning Meanderings… A Day Of Library Friends


Good morning!  Wow.  *yawn* *stretch*

What a day.

Yesterday I went to my first Minnesota Library Association of Friends meeting in St Paul Minnesota.  That involved me being ready and out of the house by 7 am and at the meeting shiny and ready to go by 10 am.

The Association supports the friends groups of Minnesota.  By being a part of this board I am ale to have a voice in how we support our friends groups.  I really am excited to be a part of it.



2:10 pm and I am out the door and heading for home.  In the house by 4:30 pm, time to organize my notes, heat my sandwiches and out the door again for our Annual Friends Meeting.  I was very excited with the turn out.  We had a wonderful year.  Our Spring book sale was a record-breaking sale.  This year we plan on it being another awesome sale.  We are actually for the first time ever moving the sale off site into a building a friend of mine owns for more space.  I am super excited about the sale!

We will have our first children’s sale this year, our third Wine and Words… so much going on!  🙂

I feel energized and have much to do today to update our website, continue my author search for Wine and Words, and work on a few things for Camp Benedict too.

Yesterday I finished up two audio books (with the drive time), Girl On The Train and Afterworlds.

and as long as I am rambling here, three books that I am planning to read have release dates today.  Keep an eye out for:

  1. Sounds like another wonderful day even though it was a long, busy one.

    You are amazing, Sheila.

    Hope today is a non-travel day for you.

    ENJOY whatever is coming your way. Will be looking for your review of The Girl On The Train.

    • Today is a nice low key day – anything I do is what I decide to do. I will go up town in a while, I have a few errands but nothing too much 🙂

  2. I’m glad yesterday was a success for you. How are you feeling? Are you in the clear yet for a post-vacation bout of illness?

  3. The library is very lucky to have you 🙂 I love reading all your library goodness. I should join our Friends group but I actually go to the library that isn’t in my city more than the one in it.

  4. Your library related news sounds so exciting, Sheila. Good luck with the sale! I started reading the Beth Kendrick book this morning.

  5. It’s awesome that you are so ‘book-active’ in your community. There was a time when I aspired to do similar things, I wonder if it’s time to start rolling the idea around in my head a bit again. Thanks for the inspiration!
