Youth Services librarian and former retail manager seeking to abolish the phrase "But that's the way it's always been done!"
Potomac Community Library got a new patio over the summer, but it’s beautiful in the winter too! We couldn’t resist going out to take a few pictures….Pleasantly surprised the weatherman was wrong when he forecasted just a dusting!
WHAT IS YOUR EARLIEST HUMAN MEMORY?
I remember the day my sister was born. I was four, and it was the 4th of July. We’d just moved and I was still on a mattress on the floor. I saw light shining in the doorway and a dress was hanging on the closet doorknob when I was awakened to go to the hospital. I don’t remember anything else except being upset that I missed the parade and the fireworks that day. It was a long time before I forgave my kid sister for that. She had the nerve to believe, when she got bigger, that the parade/fireworks were held just for her.
Oh wait, just remembered something earlier. I was three and had the whooping cough or croup or some other crud. I won’t share the gross details—let’s just say it involves a hospital, syrup of ipecac, and not warning my parents they gave it to me.
“The objects are normally collected in large quantities categorized and assembled in a way that transforms their meaning. My work is about giving banal and overlooked objects a new significance. The finished piece of work takes various forms such as chandeliers, installations, functional and sculptural objects.”—Stuart Haygarth
