The reason why for this design study is the concern of The Dalles-Wasco County Library Foundation about the lack of a separate children’s area in the library. The children’s area is located in the open main part of the library and is overcrowded disturbing nearby adults. Also there is not an appropriate space for the popular story time and other children’s programs which are currently held either outside, in the library meeting room, or in the main part of the library.
At the Center, it is the entertaining” Hardshell Harmony” grazing in the bluegrass tonight. And next Tuesday January 3rd we round the bases again and start off the new year with the rousing Strawberry Mountain Band who will show you how to “walk the dog”. The music starts at 7:00, everyone is invited and donations are appreciated. And as Danny Kaye and Vera Ellen would say “The best things happen when you’re dancing”.
And one last reminder for the forgetful types. You have until the end of the year (which is only four days!) to enjoy a delicious dinner or dessert or both - at the Baldwin Saloon and have 5% of your total bill donated to a non-profit of your choice. At the Center, you can pick-up a coupon to designate the non-profit or you can print off a coupon at the Baldwin Saloon website.
Well, it’s been another week celebrating what’s right so I can work to change what’s wrong. Until we meet again, it’s hard driving into the New Year when you’re always looking in the rear view mirror.
