Crafty kids

Throughout most of the year at London Public Library's baby branch in Glanworth, I set out crafts for kids every Saturday morning. It's usually a very simple craft that doesn't need much explanation or fuss.   I like it best when kids take my ideas and add their own creative spin to them. Here are a few photos of Glanworth's crafty kids:

We take a craft break for the next two months because we have the Summer Reading Club getting into full swing. That's loads of fun too!

All the best,

Marvelous mail!

I just received a delightful envelope full of thank you cards from one of the schools I visited in Saskatchewan. I'm the one who should (and did) send thank you cards to all the schools who so warmly welcomed me.

This large card is from Mr. Marten's grade 4/5 class at 
Cornerstone Christian School in Moose Jaw.

And from the same school, these cards are from Mr. Breitkreuz's grade 2/3 class.

I'm so touched by the thoughtfulness of the students and staff! My gratitude to Susan Bergen for her kind words and for sending the cards to me.

All the best,

Judy Ann

Did I mention...

...that I get to hold Baby Austyn every time he comes to the library?
How lucky am I?

Enjoy your day,

Glanworth's Newest Resident!

The lovely village of Glanworth, Ontario, has a sweet new resident: Austyn! He was born just over a month ago and has been coming to the library since he was 3 days old! His mom and dad and big sister, Taylor, are devoted library patrons and they visit every time the library is open. I feel privileged to have the pleasure of seeing Taylor, and now Austyn too, grow up. Here's a family photo:

The little Glanworth library is such a lovely hub of activity on Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings and everyone has been so pleased to meet Baby Austyn. The more the merrier! Austyn, we're so glad you're here!

All the best,

Judy Ann
