  • Did you know it? You're a Natural poet!

    HAPPY EARTH DAY! To celebrate, the theme this week will be none other than nature herself. Such a vast and copious muse she can be. One often only need sit in an open field or in the shady wood for a few minutes, with pen and paper in hand, before words start to flow like clear river streams down rugged mountainsides. Nature has been inspiring ...

  • The Limerick

    A limerick is a type of poem that is often witty or humorous. The limerick generally uses a form of five anapestic lines rhyming AABBA.

  • RFID Upgrade

    Grab a partner and do the RFID do-si-do. This is what has been going on here behind our closed doors, a whole lot of dancing. Except this kind of dancing is long and tedious work.

  • See You Tomorrow!

With just 11 days left before that target date of November 3rd, we are beginning to see the fruits of our labor and the labor of the construction workers.

  • The only constant in life is change.

    Today saw the children's area beginning to come into its own and looking sharp. The stairs are now lined with anti-slip rubber material. The side trim is being applied today.   From left to right we see Candy, Rebecca, and David busy developing strategies to more efficiently allocate our staff resources. All in a ...

  • What a Colorful Day!

    The man in the red plaid shirt is squatting next to the red chair to install the red shelves in the colorful new Teen Room. In other words, now that the carpet has been put down, J.D. can prepare the shelves where the books will be found.    The white electrical socket hangs from the white ceiling in anticipation of ...

    With carpeting finished on the second floor and well underway on the first, it appears at this point that we're on schedule for that November 3rd re-opening. Of course, anything can happen in the next few weeks and we'll know better by the end of next week, but right now it's looking good. Here's a quick recap of what's ...
