Next we were off to a friend's house to pick up three free book cases. They are downsizing to a much smaller house and had lots of stuff for free. Two bookshelves were placed in the "official" library and the third in the kitchen to house gluten-free products and cookbooks. So we are well underway on this great adventure. In May I will be attending the state home school convention and hope to pick up some great deals at the big used book sale.

Starting The Lending Library
As many of you know from a previous post our family is starting a lending library. Of course it will probably be a year or more before I actually have families coming to borrow. I have alot of work ahead of me. I guess one of the reasons I considered this huge project is that the way the economy is going and government issues I feel anything could happen in the future. No funds to continue to have libraries open, government rewriting history, etc. So today we started this endeavor. First a feed store in town shut down and today they were having a warehouse sale. We purchased a floor to ceiling bookcase for $15.00. This book case will stay in the tv room and house alot of our personal books that we won't loan out.
