Hoppin' Around

  This is the last week for the Passport to Connecticut Libraries. Time certainly does fly when you are having awesome adventures! A big old YAY!!!! to everyone that is sharing photos on Facebook and Instagram. I have loved seeing where everyone is traveling to. 

It is so nice to see so many people appreciating the libraries in Connecticut. 

   I have been busy driving around, meeting super nice librarians and learning about so many fascinating places.

   Phew!! This is only a small patch of Connecticut! The rest of the state is just as vibrant and full of incredible libraries. Friends, I hope you are all taking advantage of the passport program and checking out all that our libraries have to offer.
