I’ve been talking a lot lately about starting this new library. If you’re on my email list, you might have gotten the plea to come visit during opening week.
However, if you can’t visit (or just haven’t yet) how about a tour?
One of my volunteers and her husband did this for us. It’s a virtual tour of the library.
Also, for those who haven’t yet seen the media storm:
Here is a link to the Star Tribune article (and yes, that is a photo of me – and also, that is my car parked on the street in front of the library.)
Here is a link to the (more recent) Pioneer Press article
That article from the Pioneer Press has been picked up nationally by the Sacramento Bee and the Watertown (SD) Public Opinion. I’ve heard rumors of it in other areas, but none have been confirmed.
That article, by the way, ran on the front page. Not the front page of one of the sections, but the headline article to the whole paper. It was very exciting for us all.
And an article from the Stillwater Gazette is here.
We are officially open for business these days, so thing are ticking off smoothly. Well, smoothly might be a gross exaggeration, but at least we’re open.
Next stop is our official Grand Opening ceremony. Any chance that anyone knows a local celebrity who will come?
