September Librarian Report
September saw our children go back to school. This can bring smiles or tears. School time brings learning and watching the children mature. They are bittersweet times. This September the Library hosted the second annual Back to School for Mom. This is a time when we gather as adults and celebrate or commiserate children starting school. I choose the first day of kindergarten to host this event. September 6, Thursday morning bright and early I showed up with lemonade and homemade cookies. The moms and grandpa that showed up were glad for the conversation. The kids loved the train set I brought out of storage from home. These personal connections made have lasting results for many years. I am glad to be a spoke on the wheel called Brownsville.
