A letter sent to the Burley Public Library Foundation:
We had so much fun on today’s parade entry. The library staff did funny little skits and played silly. These were the characters of Thing 1, Thing 2, and the clown, of course. Olga & Brenda slapped high 5’s with about a million children and got a lot of smiles and cheers. Cari created the vision of our simple little entry and her husband welded and cleaned their ATV and trailer to make it shine.
This was a wonderful event for all of us. People cheered and clapped, reminding us all of the importance of their library in our community. Parents and grandparents made special efforts to point out to their little ones that the characters from Mary Poppins, Beauty and the Beast, Toy Story, Wizard of Oz, Moana, and my own Curious George were passing by. For me, this was exciting and humbling all at the same moment. It’s an honor to be trusted by our incredible community members. We played Jerry’s music clips that had anything to do with books or the library. All of our staff members participated to some degree creating this simple little entry. Just a fun, fun, fun day.
Thank you, BPL Foundation for making this day such a delight!!!!
