My Library

I have had several requests from my favorite aunt to see a picture of my library. Translation ~ "several requests" was my mom said to & "favorite aunt" which ever one I'm talking to at that moment, except for the real favorite aunt & she knows who she is...and we leave it unspoken so as to not bother her sisters (she has four one of which is my mother) and my cousins since I'm her favorite niece.

Anyway, this is the circulation desk that we (Moe, Joni, Nancy, Tracy, Me & did I forget anyone) art-if-icated.
Let me just say that while the desk is gorgeous, it was the most incredibly difficult 'little project' I have ever done. In fact, when I had to add it to my inventory with a 'valuation' we used a $50 an hour plus materials formula and the cost ended up around $10,000 - and that weren't mostly materials folks.

This is the browsing area also known as my collection also known as the books and stuff...

This is the classroom where I teach my world-class-library-of-the-world-lessons.

And of course this is my office, where I plan those world-class-library-of-the-world-lessons
with a close up of the desk where the magic really happens...

I did forget to take a picture of the entrance which looks like a old-time general store. Because, in case you didn't notice, I have a western theme going on. And that there is my library folks.

You need to take a picture of the door where you enter and the fireplace. You left the good stuff out. It's one beautiful libary and I'm soooooooo proud of you. MOM

In case you don't already know it, this is what you were born to do. The kids at Ator Heights will be telling their own kids about this great library experience for many years to come.

Have I told you lately how proud I am of you?

AWESOME AWESOME - Almost wish I was back in grade school as long as I could be at your school. Thanks for sharing. Maybe you can take me on a tour next time I come for a visit.
