Wow did we gerbils have an exciting day today! Arthur hasn't been feeling himself for a few days and when the humans examined him yesterday they realized his teeth were all overgrown. This can happen with us rodents because our teeth continue to grow throughout our life. Usually our teeth wear down as we chew, but things can go wrong and then the teeth get long and make it hard to eat. So it was off to the vet for Arthur to have his teeth trimmed. All of us got to go because we didn't want Arthur to feel scared at the vet by himself.
What an odd week of weather we have been having... first rain, rain, rain, flood, then snow and now cold? Come on, spring, we gerbils are ready!
Book Match 2013-14
You know what else is ready? The 2013-2014 Book Match list! New titles have been chosen, old titles have been removed, and the the list is out! The Book Match Nooks are currently being updated with the new titles (as we gerbils type)! Come in and get a head start for next year's season today!
There will be some very exciting changes happening in our department within the next few months! The computer and game computer/art table area will be undergoing a renovation to make better use of space.
An updated computer station unit will be installed; this will hold 8 computers--reservation sign up (when all computers are in use) and printing (color and black & white) will take place at our reference desk.
As we dictate this blog to our librarians, our hardy weekend maintenance crew is hard a-shovelin' outside... it's a winter wonderland outside! We decided though, to stay in our tank today rather than go outside & see about our shadows... it looks cold! We'll let Punxsutawney Phil take care of everything. (Did you know Phil has been to our library before as part of an animal program? He has.)
We are going to be at the Day of Service in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Are you? Click this posting's title for more information.
