I am the Flenniken Flamingo, but you can call me Lola. It is my job to watch over the library. And what an interesting job it is. Every so often I write down what my day is like, and leave it on the website for you to read.

Today the library was really empty. Hardley anyone came to visit me because we got 5 inches of snow. I wish I could be outside playing in it!

I am so glad now that Thanksgiving is over. I hid in the library so that no one would think I was a turkey and try to eat me for Thanksgiving!

I was looking outside the library today, and I saw that Paul (an honorary flamingo) had put up a flamingo flag for Halloween. Look for different flag on different holidays!

A lot of kids came into the library today. I think it was because it was sooo hot outside!

A bunch of kids came into the library today, because it is the first day of the Summer Reading Program. The kids did many different things, and had fun. Their pictures are even under the Summer Reading Program section of the kid's page.

The library has been really busy with people coming in for tax forms. It was so busy that a bunch of the people who work at the library stayed after the library was closed last Friday. They were acting strangely and had a video camera with them. I wonder what they were doing...

The library has been empty for a couple of days because of the ice storm. I took the chance to read some interesting Valentine's Day books. I especially liked Junie B. Jones and the mushy gushy valentime, and Clifford's first Valentine's Day.

Happy New Year! I'm back from my trip. While I was gone the library started a 6:00p.m. story hour. What fun!

The Summer Reading Program is now finished. I am going to fly south to be a demonstration bird for a zoo, so I won't post until I get back!

Another rainy day in Carmichaels. It's been raining all week. But I don't mind, I'm nice and dry here inside the library. A lot of students came in to write papers today. I hope they all get A's!
