Recently I realized that I just didn't have much time for reading. A librarian who doesn't read is like a guitarist without strings, a cobbler with no shoes, a balloonist bereft of hot air. So I decided to do something about it.
On Thursday, March 2000, my Associate Director, Holly Deni, received an e-mail. That e-mail read, in part:
My daughter's "first book" -- by which I mean the first book where she was able to identify all the words -- was Goodnight Moon. My son, Perry, who turned six a little over a month ago, now has his first book (although he hasn't quite got all the words). Perry has learned to read from ... a paperback collection of Calvin and Hobbes comic strips. Cool, huh?
Readers of this paper have probably noted the weekly listing of library events elsewhere. But I thought I'd call out some of the notable events coming up this month.
In addition to our weekly story times, we have a number of reading groups. Here's a gander at March literary gatherings:
March 1 - the Mother-Daughter Book Club at Highlands Ranch will be reviewing "Julie of the Wolves" at 7 p.m.
