Our next-to-last event was a great success. The day dawned bright and sunny, a big change from the previous day. We had 8 guests that participated. It was an extra special day, as a friend of Sal’s from her radiation treatment drove 4 hours to see her and a lady who knew Sal’s mother Gracie came to say hello and pay her respects. Several young people added to the fun. The young ones always serve to make our events more fun with their creativity and unbridled enthusiasm.
The Mountain Home library is a beautiful facility with a long history. (See our Mountain Home web page for more info about the history.) They are very proud of being one of the few remaining libraries with a history going back to the Carnegie libraries of the early 1900s.
This library is quite modern, with multiple creative workstations and a set of 3D printers to see the results. They make this technology available to all their library card holders. They even have an in-house coffee shop featuring the slogan “No Barristas, Just Librarians”.
The library also has an extensive doll collection from around the world. A (very) small sample is attached.
We appreciate and thank our host Kurt for his promotion and support of our project. And we appreciate our guests, who are the ones that make our events fun and inspirational.
Sal and I took a short drive after the event back over part of US 20 we covered the day before. Seeing the gorgeous landscape without angry clouds made a big difference.
We are headed to Burns, OR today for our 12th state and final event of this trip.
