Roller Boy Book Launch

Thanks to all who were involved, the Roller Boy launch party was a great success! It was so nonstop busy, I never even got a chance to see all that was going on in the rest of the library. But I know there were scavenger hunts, story times, door prizes, and lots of information-sharing during their 130th Anniversary Open House celebration, and apparently close to 300 people were in attendance.

I’m still catching my breath, but here are a bunch of pictures. Most of these shots (I’m sharing them at a low resolution) were taken by Art Norton Photography. Check out Art on Facebook, too. He has some gorgeous scenery and wildlife.










That’s all for now. I may be adding more pictures later, but I wanted to get as many posted as possible so attendees can find themselves. Sorry to those who came during camera breaks. Thanks again, blogworld!

Almost forgot to mention my next two events:

Oct. 6th from 11 to 3 at the Children’s Author Festival in conjunction with Strawbery Banke in Portsmouth, NH

Oct. 13th from 12 to 3 at Barnes & Noble in Salem, NH

Hope to see you there!
