Our Mysterious Minds book group met last week for a special holiday get together. During the event, the book club's moderators, Nancy and Amy, were each presented with a lovely gift - handmade quilts.

Each quilt features the authors and titles of the books they've read throughout the time the group has been together. Both librarians were absolutely touched by the meaningful and heartfelt gifts.

Fairy Tale & Superhero Festival 2020 Storytellers at the Bel Air Branch of Harford County Public Library.
I am very disappointed that the book I requested from HCPL is not available. It's very sad that the ONE COPY is missing and hasn't been replaced. I have written to the Harford County Library in the past about my concern for the LACK of Books on the Shelves! Why in the world would the Library, the KEEPER OF BOOKS, get rid of books while there is room (and PLENTY of it!) on the shelves. This is not the first time a book I wanted to read was Not Available in our Very Well Funded Harford County Library!! Maybe the Powers To Be need to review their policies about weeding out books. Just because a book hasn't circulated in while doesn't mean someone won't want to read it in the future!
We were so disappointed to miss our library day and story time, but there was absolutely no parking and the change machine in the garage was not working.
Our friends at Sweet Aire Farms were wearing their Summer Reading t-shirts with pride at a recent Bel Air Farmers Market! Summer is flying by so be sure to stop by any HCPL location and sign up today!! #hcplmd
Hope to see you at the Bobcat Craft & Vendor Fair 🐾 60+ crafts/vendors and food trucks 🎶
