Blogging At The Library

I am always amazed at what the library offers. Though as a child I spent so little time at a library I grew up to find libraries more than useful. If you like relaxing and people watch the library is for you. Personally, I love getting lost in the books. Still ours here have been offering classes, coloring time for adults, movies and well lots of good reads. They have a lot of auto books as well for those who are doing crafts like knitting but still what a good read.
I am taking advantage of the internet these days. Going to use it for my blogs and write posts up at home then send them to the blog the next day. Let’s see how that helps.
Blogging at The Library

I saw her sitting there
Looking as if she was doing
Nothing so I sat beside her and waited
When she did not look up
I cleared my throat and when she failed to notice
I said excuse me my name is……
She looked up then and said
Excuse me can’t you see I’m blogging?


I will be blogging at the library myself so I hope to see you there.  If anyone is ever in the great Town of Alexandria LA.   I recommend going to the library to spend some time and check out what they have to offer.  City of Alexandria LA or see Alexandria Library .

Summer Reading Program

Maegan had wanted to do the summer reading program this year with the main library here in Alexandria LA.  So yesterday we went to the internet and signed up.  Well while we were there I discovered I could do it as well so why not, lead by example right?  Well I only have to read 5 books which amazes me as I cut my teeth on books.  I was reading adult books by 3rd grade, just love to read.  Don’t worry I read what was known then as Gothic’s which I loved as they were full of adventure, history, suspense and the hero was always a woman.

Great books.  We anyway not to many good gothics out there now a days so I am going to start my reading off with a book I got free from the library written by Harlan Coben.  Called Play Dead it is about a woman who goes and get married only to have her husband go out for a swim and not return.  Sounds so good.  He says this is a book he wrote about 20 years ago and just recently published it so when I read it I will tell you some about it and what I think.  Ok?

Off to the Library

We are off to the library today to have some fun seeing Lady Chops and getting a library.  They are giving away school supplies and a vacation treat for the kids before school starts up again.

The library we are going to just went on the Historical Registry this summer so here in Alexandria our libraries are busy.  Will be posting pictures I hope so will see you all later I am off to the library.
