I keep thinking that it would be fun to have a little thing here at Book Journey that if you see me mention libraries or the word library in a post you win something…
Then I thought…. well that is just crazy. I talk about libraries ALL THE TIME. 😉
Today I am at the L3 Summit in St Paul Minnesota. This is pretty cool. About 4 years ago I was involved in a study with two of our Librarians that involved two-day work shops in ST Paul for four different dates within a year to learn more about strengthening our Libraries, and how we can help each other grow. It was a great program and I learned a lot. In fact, Wine and Words came out of this training.
They worked with Minnesota libraries when I was involved – a mix of large libraries, and small. Then after Minnesota they took this program to Wisconsin. And then this last year, they worked with South Dakota. Now, at this Summit is a mix of the three years,all three states, inviting back those that made the most progress with the program. I am honored to be a part of this.
So today is a day of connecting and sharing our success with our libraries and our programs. I am excited to hear what the others have done as well. I brought along a few Wine and Words brochures as well as tickets – cause hey – you never know 😉
Last night they had a dinner which was nice. I came back to my hotel room and wanted a little something so thought I would check and see if they had a little snack area. I figured there are times that it makes sense to pay $5 for something sweet. 😉 I found in a cupboard in the room the jack pot…. and yes, I paid $6 for a small jar of Dark Chocolate Toffee Pistachios. They had me at toffee…. lol
I will be back to talk about the books of BEA and the expo itself…. just let the last few days get away from me 🙂

Libraries are so much fun. Especially in bigger cities. The kids area is sometimes better than the adult area. LOL
Well, we could all drink when you mention libraries. 😉
I like Kathy’s idea! I don’t drink liquor but I could take a swig of water.
If we all drank when you mentioned libraries I’m afraid very little work or blogging would occur! I’d pay big bucks for that jar of candies too. 🙂
Yum! Now I’m craving Dark Chocolate Toffee Pistachios!
Happy Monday, Sheila! Libraries are great places, and the toffee sounds divine.
I love hearing about all the things you do with your library! We have a tiny (but much loved) library, so it’s fun to hear what people do at bigger ones.
I’m off to find some chocolate now. That’s just not fair to show us goodies like that! 🙂
I wish Tulsa would jump on the improvement train. A lot of the libraries are falling apart.
