Tuesday was quite possibly the most beautiful day we’ve had yet this summer- sunny, breezy, tolerable humidity- and I was happy to spend it in picturesque Beeton at the New Tecumseth Public Library!
There is lots of love about NTPL, including historical artifacts related to the city’s bee-keeping history displayed around the library, but this quilt caught my eye:
Not only does it feature a bookshelf, but it was created and designed by a local quilting group for display AND fundraising purposes. Patrons can make a $35 donation to the library and have their name embroidered on one of the book spines. What a great idea! Take a closer look here:
Don’t you love that book worm!?
The fairly new Teen Advisory Group at NTPL has been hard at work coming up with cool programming ideas and the writing contest was hugely successful! I was incredibly impressed with the originality, emotion, and sophistication of the works. They were truly a pleasure to read. Congrats to the winners and thanks to everyone who came out to support young artists and the library. A special thanks to Patti, Julie & Scott who were invited me to take part and treated me like a queen all day long.
Take this poster, for example. I love this poster. Not only does it feature Snoopy* working away on his blue typewriter (just like mine!), but is certainly nice to be referred to as a ‘celebrity’ judge, bringing me one step closer to becoming a sassy but fair judge on American Idol.
As if I wasn’t flattered enough, check out the snazzy t-shirts they had made up, modeled by the hard-working TAG team of NTPL posing with yours truly.
*I love all things Snoopy and Peanuts. Being from a town called Woodstock you kind of have to.
