  • Ready Fair 2016
  • Library offers 3forME library card for students

    It is a brand new school year. For most of us, a good portion of our lives followed a school calendar. My internal clock still wants to follow this schedule. In June and July, it is a little harder to focus, but when August rolls around, I am ready to conquer a “new year.” I even love a new pair of back to school shoes. I have an affinity to school supplies. I love binders, pens and all that fun stuff. I get excited when I see stores start stocking these items.
