Morton Public Library hides 'golden tickets' as part of 90th anniversary celebration

libraryjournal:

Each ticket is good for a prize, either a library tote bag, cup of coffee or hot cocoa or bottle of water.

The scavenger hunt is part of a year-long celebration of the library’s 90th anniversary.

“We’re trying to come up with creative ways to commemorate the anniversary without having a lot of money to spend,” said John Howard, the library’s technology coordinator and head of the 90th anniversary committee made up of six staff members.

A fun and inexpensive way to celebrate your library.

If this is your husband, I have just endured a 2 hour train ride from Philadelphia listening to this loser and his friends brag about their multiple affairs and how their wives are too stupid to catch on. Oh, please reblog the shit out of this…

"i love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out. i love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. i love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re looking at me like Iim nuts. i love that after i spend the day with you, i can still smell your perfume on my clothes. and i love that you are the last person i want to talk to before i go to sleep at night. and it’s not because i’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s new year’s eve. i came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible."

you see? that is just like you, harry. you say things like that, and you make it impossible for me to hate you.”
