Attention Library People

I didn't realize so many librarians (and granddaughters of librarians) read this blog! So here's the deal. If you invite me to visit your library, I will try to come. For free. See, without libraries, I would have turned to a life of crime. So I feel I owe the librarians of the world for keeping me out of jail.

By the way, what does "officially" mean?
Like, do we get to harass you, ask endless questions, and then follow you home?
Hehe. Oops. I mean...xD

That library pic looks so COOL! The Otis Library just got remodeled. It is very nice now, (much more than the one here in MA!)

Oh, the library is in a different state than I am, so you wouldn't be able to see the havoc that I have wrought in my own town!

Raph: I WISH!

Of course you're always welcome in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I know a bunch of 6th graders who would love to meet you in person. . .

Maybe we'll just have to visit NYC!

If you come to my library you can stay in my house! I will gladly give up my room and go crash in Nellie's. Heeheehee Then you won't need a hotel.

I know Atlanta is far away, but if you come nearby, could you pretty-please-with-sugar-on-top come to either Little Shop of Stories, my very favorite book store, or the Decatur Library? That would be amazing!!!!

Talking in the Library: You're always welcome! It would be fun--that's for sure.

Hazel: In Germany? ;)

Anonymous: You might be surprised to learn that I'm in Atlanta fairly often. Next time, I'll check those place out!
