A Trip to the Library - Stocking Up on Books

My husband and I ran down to the library to stock up on books for the long holiday weekend. The Multnomah County Library has a Tree Growing in It!



The Beverly Cleary Children's Library has a brass tree sitting in the center of the room. It has all sorts of things carved into the tree and children come and rub the animals' faces. The more an animal is rubbed, the more he shines. It's a beautiful sight to see.


What a wonderful way to spend a holiday weekend: reading.

And, now on to more serious holiday subjects. It's time to talk turkey. If you need help calculating how long to cook your Thanksgiving bird, just click on the upcoming link and then scroll down the page to the "calculator" and this little helpful link will give you your exact Turkey Time.

Oh, what a cool library! Ours is quite dull, but I suppose I should be thankful we even have one in this day and age. Thanks for sharing the pictures. It reminds me of the statue of Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens in London.

Happy Thanksgiving, Kim!

We have a tree in our library too! The kids love it! (ours is not brass though, I think it is paper mache or something! :0)
I'm going to the library today as a matter of fact!
Happy Thanksgiving!

That's a beautiful tree!
And believe it or not I do need the turkey calculator - I forget from year to year...

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
