New cardholder

Jadzia achieved a long-sought goal today: She got a card from the Ferguson Municipal Library.

The requirement for a child to receive a card is that he or she be able to print their own name legibly. Jadzia has been working on her writing on and off for a while now, and she can (oftentimes) write it pretty well.

Today she had to write it three times: Once on paper with a pencil, to prove to the librarian she could do it; another time on the application form; and finally on the card itself. She was very proud.

The first books she checked out for herself: Beauty and the Beast (a long version) and Peter and the Wolf. (She also checked out a book for Ludi about trains)

    Congratulations to Jadzia! I still remember getting mine to use the bookmobile when I started second grade. Here’s to many decades of joyful reading!
