Love Your Local Library!

MENTAL STATUS: "Anxious". Looking forward to Easter. (Especially since I'm not cooking)

In a small town, news travels fast. Still...I don't know why I was so surprised when my local library called me up a last week to congratulate me on my book.

Actually, my library was on my "to be called" list. I was going to ask if I could leave some bookmarks with them. Obviously, they beat me to the punch and then one upped me by inviting me to speak about my book and to do a book signing for National Library Week.

I said, "Wow, sure! When's National Library Week?" They said, "In two weeks." Eeep.

They're handling the advertising and even said they're buying my book for the library, too. I have to say I am a HUGE supporter of my library. Over the years I have taken advantage of workshops, computer services, story time, and of course BOOKS! So it's especially nice to have the support come back to me now that I'm an author.


Anyhew, the hubby and the kiddo are off today for the Easter holiday, so I must limit my computer time.

Have a great weekend and a happy Easter!

How exciting to be asked and acknowledged like that! Good luck with it. I can totally understand your nervousness, but I bet you'll be fantastic!
