A brief recess to remember a wonderful soul

In addition to the extra time I've lately devoted to my new job, we were called to New Jersey on Labor Day weekend because of the sudden illness and then death of Jim's wonderful younger brother, Scott.  That's Anna, above, with her Uncle Scott  in 1989 when we all gathered to see Jim's Dad receive an honorary degree from Seton Hall Law School.  Scott was a librarian, so he and Peanuts and I had lots in common.  He began as a school librarian and then rose to be in charge of several law libraries for a large law firm.  He loved Harry Potter and mysteries, so we shared lots of good talks about books.  His nieces and nephews were devastated by his passing as were all of us in his family.  He will be greatly missed and sadly mourned.  Thanks for visiting the blog.  More posts when time allows.

Quilted Librarian has a new library

I know it's been almost a month and I haven't even posted my Chicago pictures yet, but it's been some wild ride lately.  I am now happily ensconced at a new school.  This one is elementary, so I am going back to the little folks and I'm loving it.  When things settle down a bit, I will catch you up.  For now, here are some views of my sweet little library and some of the new plants and tea set planters that I've added.
