I took the children to the ribbon cutting ceremony at the new library. They were able to get right up in front to see everything (there weren't many kids there). So, they got to see the mayor cut the ribbon and listen to the speeches. They thought it was pretty cool. Then they had donuts and orange juice. Baskin Robbins gave away coupons for free kids cones. They got metal bookmarks with the Library Grand Opening written on them and "I Love to Read" bracelets. We spent two hours there with the girls looking at books and playing with puzzles.
