Fontana Library Redux

So, just wanted to drop in and say what a FABULOUS time I had at the Fontana Library yesterday! I met a slew of interesting people--librarians, avid readers, writers, artists, myspace friends-- you name it! Signed a ton of books, gave away bookmarks, and yes, even took pictures that I promise to share with you soon--very soon! 

But if you are anywhere near the area- then I strongly urge you to stop by and see for yourself. Because simply put, it is the nicest library I've EVER been to!  Seriously high tech and comfortable with a coffee bar and all kinds of cool features- not at all the stodgy hall of silence they built back in my day! This is a fun destination for the whole family, and from the looks of the crowd yesterday, the Fontana residents have already caught on!

Okay, back to figuring out how to download those photos onto this laptop . . .

Hey Amy- I know- libraries have come a long way! I could've hung out there all day!

Hey Keri- Yes, a coffee bar- the place was incredible!
Not much sun here so far . . .hope there is in your parts!

Hi Alyson,
It was so nice to meet you and I am glad you took the opportunity to come out to Fontana.
I admire your disciplined writing regimen you shared with those of us at your May 21 "Book Talk."
I am also sure I'm not the only one you inspired to continue working toward goals; you seem very sincere and fun and shined a bright light on authorship.
Thanks!
