Morton Public Library hides 'golden tickets' as part of 90th anniversary celebration -

This inspires me for my librarys 100 year birthday this October:

:

Each ticket is good for a prize, either a library tote bag, cup of coffee or hot cocoa or bottle of water.

The scavenger hunt is part of a year-long celebration of the library’s 90th anniversary.

“We’re trying to come up with creative ways to commemorate the anniversary without having a lot of money to spend,” said John Howard, the library’s technology coordinator and head of the 90th anniversary committee made up of six staff members.

A fun and inexpensive way to celebrate your library.

When I lived in #dublin it was near #sandymount beach. This became one of my favorite places in the world. Today I was back for the first time in 15 years bringing my kids with me. This was a very powerful experience and a moment of calm #zen… I will be back! Here Alma and Konrad at “the bottom of the sea” - The tide is amazing.

On borrowed time - Ben Glover on #libraries and #music -

If you did choose to write a song about a library (hint!) – what would the title be?
That’s a tough one! What about “We’re On Borrowed Time.” I might go and start tinkering with it…!

My friend Christian makes awesome stop motion movies about libraries!
