What's Happening @ Little Elm Public Library

Little Elm Public Library newsletter

The most exciting thing happened on Saturday, October 10th. My daughter had her baby (named Annalia Irene, weighing in at 7 pounds 3 ounces). It is a good thing that I came into the 21st century by buying a new phone that has texting and other media capabilities. I was spending a lot of time texting her husband during the time that she was not in the mood to talk due to the labor pains. What was really psychic is that I had not texted for a few hours and then the next time I sent a text asking how she was, he told me she was delivering the baby. There is a lot to be said about a mother’s instinct and intuition. Stay tuned for weekly updates and I would love to hear any of your stories about mother’s intuition and instinct. I am also conducting a survey. For those of you who are grandparents, what do the grandchildren call you?

Bestsellers added this week include “Dexter by Design” by Jeff Lindsay; “The Lost Symbol” by Dan Brown; “Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman” by Jon Krakauer; “Pilgrims” by Garrison Keillor; “Have a Little Faith” by Mitch Albom; “Hardball” by Sara Paretsky; Perfect Piece by Rebeca Seitz and “Hothouse Orchid” by Stuart Woods. I am currently listening to “Hothouse Orchid” on audio and it is very good.

Speaking of reading, drop by the library on Saturday, October 17th at 10:30am during family story time and listen to stories while spending time with Molly the Schipperke certified through Therapy Dog International. At 1pm, visit the knitting club.
