An Old School Lap Topper
At yesterday's library board and staff visioning workshop (I'm on the board), we discussed more collaborations we could do with other community organizations, you know, library programs in conjunction with Lynn Canal Counseling, or the Chilkoot Indian Association or the museum, school, and arts council. Librarian Barb Blood added the Haines Animal Rescue Kennel to the list and said, "We are working with HARK right now on getting some of their materials for the library." I suddenly had a vision of a row of airline kennels behind the front desk. Lap tops would have a whole new meaning-- You could check out a cat to go with your English mystery. A puppy to roll around with in the children's room. An old Lab could snore by the newspapers. There could even be lap-sit story times for pets. Forte would love that.
