Happy Shiny Library Story

I tend to bitch a lot about my job and this is normally where I would dig up a happy library story to share with you all. Unfortunately, I don't have one. So I'm going to tell you about something that happened to another librarian I know.

This group of sweet little kids came into her library recently. They had had a lemonade stand and wanted to donate what they earned to the library: $38 and some change.

Now their parents probably put them up to it - but repeat after me


Isn't that just about the sweetest thing you've ever heard of?

This librarian then proceeded to take their pictures and wrote up an article for the local newspaper. I hope they print. Of course it will probably be on page 18 buried under the local police report, but still......
