Bernal Tote Bag. Don't miss this opportunity to both support your library and get yourself a very cool book bag featuring a rendering of the antique light fixtures. Friends of the Library are selling these bags for the first time at Fiesta on the Hill. Stop by their booth to check it out. Or if you buy a raffle ticket you might win one full of wonderful books. See you there!

Leaving Their Mark. One tradition in the construction trades is for workers to sign their names in a secret spot on the project which won't show after all the work is finished. Today I stopped in to see what was happening. I wandered into the Lower Level to snap some pictures and on my way out something caught my eye on the ceiling. It was covered with autographs of the crew! What a sweet, symbolic gesture. If you want to see who is working on your library, click below. And know that when the job is finished, you will never, ever see their names again. Although we will honor their hard work by enjoying the beautiful library which they are helping to build.
