It's that time of year again, and with all due respect to Nat King Cole, I'm not talking about those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer, I'm talking about being stuck in the car when every road you're on is under some kind of construction. Even now from the circulation desk, I can see a line of cars stretched out past the library.
So how can the library help? Well, we can't do anything about the road work, but we can entertain you in your car. We have lots of books on CD (I'm listening to a recording of "The House at Pooh Corner" and trying to imitate the character voices -- I can pull off a passable Eeyore, no surprise.) I also bring along my harmonica so I can play along to our fantatstic collection of blues CDs (Sonny Boy Williamson watch out!) And of course I have a New Yorker or two set aside just for the car. I know what you're thinking ("I never want to get stuck in a car with THAT guy!") but I manage to amuse myself, the best way to avoid stress. Stop by the Library (if you can get through) and pick up some travel de-stressers.
