Spending Someone Else's Money

Good Evening Humble Readers!

Just a quick post tonight...

Do you recall when I was yammering on about the fund raising we were doing at work for a local school's library?

Well, tonight the principal, librarian, and some helpers came in and spent two hours on a shopping spree. We got to help them spend more than $3500. They still have a bit left to spend, but they were rather overwhelmed with all that they had already purchased.

It was so much fun! I love the idea of all those kids getting have all these new books to explore.

It was great to have a local impact...

It was a good day.

  3. ICLW - though I know your ICLW post is below...

    That is thrilling! As a mom of toddlers whose town library is only open one day a week, with old and decrepit books...

    I truly appreciate this amazing post.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Hobbits are social creatures, and love hearing from friends old and new. Pull up a comfy chair and let's get to know one another.
