“Libraries allow children to ask questions about the world and find the answers. And the wonderful thing is that once a child learns to use a library, the doors to learning are always open.”
― Laura Bush
Can you guess the animal’s person?
This is Chance. Chance is a African Congo Grey Parrot. She is a teenager, and is very proud of her abilities to communicate with her humans. Like many teenagers, she likes to ask questions. She also enjoys demanding and correcting. She will ask for something “now”, and reminder her humans its bedtime, or that coffee is actually water. Chance especially likes to eat apples as a treat and like to play with shiny toys.
Answers can be shared with colleagues and guessed among the office. Next week’s newsletter will have the owner’s name. Last week’s cool cat lives with Don.
Thank you to everyone for the help you provided on the library's contributions to the Accreditation self-study. We could not have done it without you. And now we (and Faye) are really looking forward to jumping back in to all of the things we had to set aside to get those done.
