Mason’s Musings July 7th, 2023
We’ve officially entered July (a.k.a. the hottest month of the year.) Let’s hope we all make it out of this month, without too many sunburns. And speaking of making it out of the month we have a special treat for all of our hard-working patrons waiting for you come the end of July. IF the library wins the Battle of the Books against Sanger the loser will buy the winner cookies for all library patrons to enjoy. At the front desk you’ll see a jar with pens and slips of paper, we encourage you to write down your favorite cookie flavor and put it in the jar so we know what the majority of patrons would like! You all have been working so hard logging your books. Don’t let up now and risk losing your sweet treat to Sanger.
I hope this July treats you all well and that the sun isn’t baring down on you too hard, since no one likes to look like a lobster. And if you ever get tired of being out in the sun our doors are (almost) always open to offer a reprieve! Have a great rest of your week and I hope to see y’all at our upcoming events!
