Valentine's Week: It's a Wrap!

I have a blog? I must have forgot this important bit of information over the last few months. A blogging break seems a gentle way to put it...but I am BACK!

...AND I am an aunt! One of the greatest moments of my life thus far. Holding a precious miracle in the first few days is a complete gift and I couldn't be more in love. Congratulations to my brother who is now a dad. Wow! I guess we are stepping into the official grown-ups stage of life. :)

I did not blog about our November...December...and even January business in the library, but I must say that I have loved finding new ways to get kids to check out different books. I have hid golden tickets, placed "Read Me!" signs, enhanced displays, and even wrapped books trying to get kids to not judge books by their covers. Well...the wrapping made another appearance in February with heart labels saying "You'll LOVE this book!" The kids went crazy over them. None were left after the very first day. This is not for the faint of heart because you will be wrapping like an underpaid elf! However, seeing their faces as they leave with a gem of a book in hand makes it totally worth it!

We also shared books that we loved and had a few of these chart paper beauties on display in our library. It gives kiddos a chance to learn what their peers are loving.

Happy LONG weekend! Until next time.
