Mini Liebster & Library News!


Thanks Tierney, I appreciate being nominated for the Liebster Award. Tierney is an amazing textile artist (as well as a big library fan) whom I’ve been following since I started my blog. You can find her here. I’ve been wanting to link a favorite post from her blog but was waiting until my library opened up again to do it.


Woohoo, the time is finally here! We’ve been allowed back in the building after almost 2 months of sheltering in place due to COVID 19. I am so excited to see my coworkers and get back to some semblance of normal. So far we’re not officially open to the public as we are taking this in-between time to do inventory etc., but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. To those patrons with their noses pressed against the glass waiting for the doors to open – Patience my dears, the time is near.


For now though, read Tierney’s – Beastie Outing – Visit to the Library, while I fill in the requirements for the Liebster Award. (Due to time constraints I’m doing a modified version.)

•       Share 5 facts about yourself.
•       Give a shout out to 5 other bloggers.

Here’s the Facts:

  1. I love to travel especially when a cruise is involved. Can’t wait until it’s safe again.
  2. I’m a compulsive reader and get anxious if I don’t have a stack of books nearby. (I’ve amassed quite a library in my basement just in case the libraries ever closed – guess who never ran out of books during lockdown!)
  3. I love spending time with my husband, who is very funny and is also my best friend. A good evening is getting Café Rio take-out and watching classic movies.
  4. I’m a religious person but realize that isn’t for everyone, so adhere to a live and let live kind of faith. I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints – previously known as the Mormons, and I love the lifestyle. I joined in college and have never looked back.

    5. For me, nothing beats a melty chocolate chip cookie right out of the oven with a cold glass of milk. Close second – ice cold Dr. Pepper. In fact, I think I’ll get one now.


Things I learned from Covid19 – I discovered that being still and leading a simple life is highly enjoyable and that people are basically kind and caring when the chips are down,  I relearned the value of friends and family, and how crucial certain people are to my happiness. Here’s to hoping we can move ahead in a new and better way.

  1. Congratulations. Love chocolate chip cookies. I have also noticed more kindness out there in the world as well. I just need to stay off the news because that is so negative. Happy to read that you are back at work. Hopefully things will start going back to normal.


    • Thanks Little House. I stopped watching television news a long time ago for the same reason. I still get the newspaper every day, but can pick and choose what I read from that. Thanks for reading.


  2. I would love to visit my local library but think we will have to wait another month or two. I feel sorry for children who are off school and don’t have tablets or computers at home. Locally residents have made a disused old red phone box into a pop up library by putting in shelves and leaving books they have read for other people to enjoy.

    • That’s awesome. I once did an article on micro libraries and have always wanted to start one of my own. I have more than enough books to share, but we have so many libraries in the neighborhood it’s kind of unnecessary. I do feel for kids who don’t have access to computers though. That’s a problem. I hope you get to go back to your library sooner than you think. Good luck.

  3. Hi Library Lady, I’m one of those people with my nose pressed against the door. Can’t wait to wander the stacks again and breathe that rarified library air. I, unfortunately, did not have a basement full of just in case books, wish we lived closer so I could have borrowed.


    • I agree, I was totally trying to figure out a way to start a mini library out of my home, but did not have a waterproof cupboard to set something up outside, and I certainly couldn’t invite all the neighbors in to browse in the basement. This was a very weird situation. Glad it seems to be going away. Fingers crossed.


  4. Oh I so enjoyed reading your responses! And congratulations on your library opening! I recently got access to library books and I am pretty darn happy about it. Thanks for linking my blog as well as sharing my post on when my Beastie went to her first trip to the library! I had so much fun taking photos for that post and making the library staff laugh while I did it 🙂
