Archives - Weekly Update

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend. I made the flag pie that we shared the recipe for in the last newsletter on the 7th instead of the 4th; it was a really fun project. Cutting stars made of dough by hand is not easy…and it was somewhat amusing to make that happen. No two stars looked alike. I am not Betsy Ross.

When we left off Friday night, I was at the beach doing a Summer Reading presentation at the Avalon Free Public Library. I was delighted to see the familiar faces of some of our readers in the audience --- and I was amazed that 74(!) people were there on a Friday evening. You can see a photo of some of the audience members above. I enjoy events like this, seeing how enthused readers get about books and reading.
