An Exciting Evening curled up with...a great DVD!

A weekly theater experience takes place in our living room
when we borrow from the library's DVD Collection.

We thought of the many children leaving their nests as they hurry
back to school when we viewed the highly-acclaimed
documentary, "The March of the Penguins".

It's hard to imagine the immense hardships these penguins
endure to insure the safety of their little chicks, huddled under
the protective fur of their fathers while the mothers march
70 miles to the sea and food.

All the while the father is waiting (up to four months)for
her return so that he may be released of his parental duties!

Good luck, little chicks--it's a hard world out there!

Now, I'm off to search our catalog for "empty nestors"!

Don't forget to Fill the Bus to help CIS (Communities In Schools).

We have a cardboard box in the library that you can use to drop off school supplies to help kids with the upcoming school year. A lists of what is needed is available on the box or you can see the earlier post about it.

Since this is the tax-free weekend, it is a great opportunity to give back to the community...and to save a little green in the process.
