Dog Days at the Library?

We're in the "dog days of summer" right now, a term that started when the ancient Greeks thought that Sirius the Dog Star exerted influence on us poor humans sweating it out in the heat. (Those of us on Camano wonder what that's like.) Personally I wonder what kind of ego it takes to call yourself "the Dog Star" -- I never heard Lassie referred to as "Lassie the Great".

Now cats, well that's a different story altogether...

On to Year Two!

Well, what a day! Saturday June 28th marked our first year of library service on Camano Island, and we had a great book sale & bake sale to celebrate. Thanks to the Camano Island Library Friends for their hard work, and thanks to the South End String Band, Bill Testerman our balloon artist, and the Camano Fire Truck for the entertainment! Oh, and thanks to the Camano Island community for being so supportive of their little library -- we're 1/3 of the way through our pilot project.
