More about the tree, etc...

 I got the new book tubs labeled and in place, so took some more pictures. You can see the whole wall that the tree is on in the picture below. It really does need something. Still thinking of putting some words on the wall.
 Here are a few of the quotes I have so far:
Reading is dreaming with open eyes.
Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.
You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend. (I like this one, but it is probably too long.)

I picture the letters flowing across the wall, sort of like the wind. Not sure if that is possible or not, but maybe with the right font, it could be accomplished.
I like this quote too, but I got this poster, so don't want to use it again. It is one of those sticky vinyl posters...I hung it on a rust colored wall behind my desk and it looks awesome there. I forgot to take a pic of it, though. 
I was too busy taking all of these other pictures of the cute tubs! This is entrance to the library. When I am looking at the door, the other section with the two bookcases is to the left of the doors. 

 I didn't label these tubs. There are lots of miscellaneous paperbacks in them.
 The other two bookcases have the ones I have sorted out into groups so they are easier to find.

If you live in the area, the Open House is today, 11:00 - 2:00, so stop in and take a look at the newly remodeled building. I can't be there as I had already scheduled a class.
 I am teaching the Circle and Spin quilt class to a private group. Should be lots of fun...I will try to take lots of pictures.

Love this tree, and the new library looks really awesone. Seems to be a good place to work in.

I like the Once you learn to read, you will be forever free. quote, it would look great flowing across the wall.

I adore this tree graphic! It looks so awesome on your wall there.

The library looks great. I would have loved to have such an inspiring library when I was a kid. I probably never would have left!
