After ALA

After ALA wrapped up, I made my way up to the Baltimore-area to visit friends.  I visited the Frederick County Public Library in downtown Frederick, Maryland and was very impressed.

I wish I had taken a photo of the brick exterior.  Here's a picture of the central atrium.



Here are a few of the quotes they had selected for each of the support pillars in the children's room. Aren't they inspiring?


Here are two more signs which really tickled my fancy.  These were both near the computers.  Ha!  Yoda, and Shel Silverstein's Lazy Jane.  I love it! What a great sense of humor the librarians there must have.

  1. I LOVE those signs! Yoda-speak is always excellent (although certain family members may strangle me if they hear me say "There is no try. There is only do" one more time).

  2. Yes! The Strange Case of the Origami Yoda is on my TBR list, but I haven't gotten to it yet. Or should I say, "gotten to it, have I not yet"
