Library Mermaid went landlubber and visited the Public Library in Vergennes, Vt. A beautiful glass dome ceiling, a nice old building that manages to feel old and historic and yet airy and open. Upstairs they were holding a used book sale - the son grabbed some paperbacks - and we stumbled across their historic room - we were charmed by the stuffed birds and artifacts and the way it was just something we lucked across. Serendipity.

I continue to marvel at the amount of stuff people seem to include in their blogs on a daily basis...so much detail, so many links, so many updates and extensive reviews. Librarian Mermaid is busy thinking about napping and why Advil is not really working for me so much anymore.
Storytelling site: http://www.storybug.net/links.htm lots of good storytelling links as well as the storybug site.
the Scranton library in Madison, Ct has a wonderful picture books site that can be subscibed to: http://www.booksite.com/texis/scripts/bookletter/showfab.html?sid=6645&qlname=NLGC
and five owls most excellent book reviews and more...http://www.fiveowls.com/about.html, and a promise to read the blogger instructions and great info sent by Nan about how to put in links properly without all this mess of computerspeak...once I am back from the land of the son's virus spreading throughout the house ...

Of course, everyone still will misbehave, but you will feel better and in more control. And people will glare at the misbehavers more fiercely which is all the better as you and your puppet carry on stalwartly.
