Here we are, just before opening.
The stuffed animals were generously donated by someone in administration. The shelves are looking pretty full (but not overstuffed) and we are ready to finally be open!
Here we are, this photo was taken approximately five minutes after we opened our doors for the first time.
About a week later, here is local author, Brigitte Benchimol, reading from her book Jayden and the Magic Bubble: Discovering India. You'll notice the shelves behind her look a little less fluffy than they did before.
And this picture is after we'd been open for 10 days.
Those shelves look pretty saggy baggy don't they? It's not surprising, considering that we've had over 17 thousand people visit us in our first two weeks. Well, it's heartwarming to see so many people taking advantage of our fabulous collection. So, those books are out, all over town, but they'll be back. And in the meantime, we'll be shopping for more (as budget and time allows) to fill the shelves.
