New and Exciting Things

It's quite the exciting week at the library! We've been anticipating an upcoming program, and we got a cool new toy!

First, the program: Author David Rottenberg will be coming to visit us on Saturday, March 16, to read his book, Gwendolyn the Graceful Pig.  The story features Gwendolyn, who desperately wants to be a ballerina, and her friend Omar, who very badly wants to play football.  It's too bad they're both pigs!  Will they ever make their dreams come true?  Mr. Rottenberg will be bringing dancers from the Harvard Academy of Dance to perform the story for us, too!  We're excited already!

Some of us are even more excited than others.
If that wasn't enough excitement, we also received a package today that will change our lives! (At least, it'll make them a bit more fun.)  Behold - the newest library acquisition!

Please forgive the poor photo quality.  I was too excited about this to get the camera, so we took it on a cell phone.
It's an inflatable movie screen!  The Friends of the Lawrence Library were kind enough to buy this for us, to make our movie events and video game events even more awesome.  Better yet - it's even bigger than it looks!  If you look carefully, you can see the plastic clips around the outside edges, where the screen clips onto; the screen itself measures 12' on the diagonal, and it stands about 11' tall.  (I am only 5'2", and am in the photo for scale, and to show off my Vanna White skills.)

I don't know about anyone else, but I'm wicked excited about both of these things.  It's a good day to be a librarian.
