Greetings, Vagabond Students, Faculty, and Staff, and welcome back! Last week was long and odd, what with waiting every day to hear whether power was restored and school was back in session. I’m sure many of you were (or still are) without power. I hope you and your families are all safe and relatively comfortable.
Here at the Library we were pleased to find that nothing had flooded, it had not rained indoors, there were no plagues of frogs, and no-one had left any sort of dessert in any books. My week was relatively uneventful, as I never lost power (though that lead to playing host to relatives looking to shower, send emails, or play Assassin’s Creed 3). Ms. Barrows had a more harrowing time: she was trapped at Disneyworld. Please do not, under any circumstances, hum or whistle “It’s a Small World” while in her presence (granted, that’s just common courtesy. No-one likes “It’s a Small World”).
In other news, happy Election Day! If you are of age to do so and have not done so already, please make time today to go vote. There is something really special about seeing tens to hundreds of your fellow Americans lined up to do their civic duty. Even though it was early in the morning (and really cold!), the line I waited in this morning was full of smiling, upbeat people. Plus you get a nifty sticker and, in some cases, free coffee.
And at the very least, it means a few months without political ads.
On a completely different note, be on the lookout for library-sponsored book events as we head towards Thanksgiving Break!
-Signing off, Kit Gette (who vastly prefers the Jungle Cruise)
