Stroud is a quaint community where many people enjoy retirement. It sits on a lake and has a great library system. Patrons told us they loved living there! A Happy Hour group that meets each week for fun …

Our week spent in Texas was excellent. Not only was I able to catch up with some college friends and eat great Tex-Mex, I also worked with innovative librarians along the way. For example, I had the pleasure of meeting Anita Patel, Adult Services Librarian, who thought of creative ways to promote the Digital Bookmobile event at Pasadena Public Library. …

Other than the occasional rainstorm, visiting New England was great! When my co-worker and I were in Rhode Island, our diet was seafood. And we loved it. We tried clam “chowda” from so many different restaurants and saw some lighthouses and mansions on the way. We also enjoyed talking to library patrons in the New England area and appreciate everyone …
