Walthill Public Library

Moving On!

Written By: nbriggs - Aug• 24•16

On Sunday, I looked out the window and noticed that many of the barn swallows were gathered on the electric wire in front of our  house. We are always amazed to see so many birds gathered in one spot–ready for their long journey.  The day after they leave, is always a little sad and quiet on the farm.

Just as the birds need to move on—the kids at the library have moved on–into school, new classes, new teachers and many new experiences.  It has been a great summer–very busy at our little library, but we are also preparing ourselves to move on.  We are continuing to prepare for our move in late fall or early winter to the newly remodeled building that will be our new home.  We are sorting and throwing out the old to get ready for the new.

Moving on is sometimes hard. I will miss this little library—and all the good times that have we have shared with our families, here. But as we prepare to move into our new home, I also look forward to the exciting adventures the new space will provide. Our new library building will have a kitchen–not a pretend kitchen like the one we have now. We will have a larger storage room, 2 bathrooms, a foyer, and coat racks and more. So, yes, moving on is never easy, but we are choosing to look forward to even more great experiences in our new home.
