Thorndyke Thoughts

Hey Kids. Seven days and counting. Until what you ask? Connect Your Summer! CYS is my favorite part of the year! What's new this summer? There are four new badges for you to earn. And I cannot wait for you to find out all the fun things the librarians have planned for you this summer. I wish I could tell you, but I've been sworn to secrecy. If you are excited like I am, there is one thing you can do TODAY. You can go to the My Account page and create a username and password (not with your library card). You'll use this to claim your badges this summer. One of the things that LB loves about CYS, because he travels so much, is that you can participate from anywhere in the world. So you can still have library fun this summer, even if you are not at home! And I know that you have fabulous and exciting travel plans this summer. So do that right now, and then you can wait with eager anticipation (like me!) for 9:00 AM on Monday, June 17th when CYS goes live for the summer. 6 days, 15 hours, 38 minutes and 22 seconds....
Bear Hugs!
