A kind and thoughtful member of @friendsofthelibrary recently remembered me with yellow roses for my grave in Knoxville's Old Gray Cemetery.
I’ve enjoyed celebrating my birthday with you today! I hope you enjoyed learning more about me, about the history of the @knoxcountypubliclibrary and our community, and about my namesake, the Friends Rothrock Used Book Shop. And because I’m a proper librarian above all else, I will end this celebration by encouraging you to make sure everyone you know gets a library card during #LibraryCardSignUpMonth.
Keep loving your library!
Our attendees to our Shake, Rattle and Roll event this morning have an important message to share. If you listen closely at the end, they sing 'Driving all the way to Mukwonago Community Library to get my card'! Let it also not go unknown that they are all certainly holding their CAFE library cards as they dance and sing. 😊👏 #librarycardsignupmonth#newlibrarycard#drivingallthewaytomcl
Studies show that children who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school. September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when McCreary County Public Library joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that EVERY student has the most important school supply of all...... a FREE library card.
Mrs. Holly spent the morning with Whitley City Elementary Kindergartners talking about September being Library Card Sign-up Month. Mrs. Holly read "Sam's First Library Card" By: Gail Herman to the students and talked about how FREE and EASY it is for them to have their very own library card.
