One of the many benefits of a #children’slibrary is its ability to instill a sense of accountability in #children early on in their lives.  Borrow a book, take good care of it and return it on schedule; the book’s life cycle shouldn’t end with you! #GreenEggsandHam #FacetheMusic #BeAccountable #MakeItWorkMakeItThrive @Dr.Seuss @PaulBuchananAuthor @ConcordiaPublishing

May the #dreams we weave all come true,
and the days abound with richness & contentment.
