Celebrate National Library Week - April 14th-20th, 2013!!

Well, hello everyone! :) Since this week is National Library Week, I've decided to talk a little bit about my local library. I live in Loudonville, upstate New York and the library that Mareena and I usually go to is called the William K. Sanford Town Library. This library serves the Town of Colonie - surrounded by the main cities of the Capital District - Schenectady, Albany (where Mareena and I live), and Troy. 

There is always something going on at the library: art shows, book club meetings, kids' storytime, computer and Internet classes, book discussion groups and so many other things that I just can't list them all here. There is also a continuous Library Book Sale called the 'Book Nook Sale' which is always Mareena's and my stopping place during each library visit: paperbacks are .50, oversized paperbacks are .75 (I think), hardcovers are $1.00, CDs, DVDs and audiobooks are between $1.00 and $3.00. I believe that the funds raised by the Library Book Sale go to support the library somehow, I'm just not completely sure in what way. 

Mareena and I try to get to the library as often as we can - Mareena's birthday always warrants a celebratory visit - and we tend to visit the library once every two or three months beyond that particular visit. 

Till we Meet Again, Glow Brightly as Moonlight

Hello and welcome to my blog. I'm a newbie as far as book blogging goes, having been blogging at my daughter's blog for only about two and a half years. Now it's time for me to get my feet wet on my own. Please be gentle with this blogger. Love to hear from you all. Have a great day! :)
