If you look at this picture of me, you can see I'm not at CPL! The CTTS Staff and I went on a little field trip yesterday. We visited the Novi Public Library! The Novi Library built a brand new building last year and we went to look around. It's a pretty cool place. They even have a race car in the Children's Department called the Novi Special! And there are beautiful tiles to look at too. One even has a dinosaur bone in it. And just like at CPL, there a lots of fun computers to play on and interesting books to check out.
Did you know that Canton Public Library has "reciprocal borrowing privileges" with Novi Library? Those big words mean that CPL is friends with Novi Library, and that your Canton Public Library card works all the way over there! I think that's the coolest thing I learned on my tour. You should go "check out" the Novi Library (just a little library humor there!) but don't forget to come visit me too!

Hello, I noticed when I renewed some items online that there was a portion of each listing with some stars that would indicate a rating of some type. I would assume but perhaps incorrectly that the rating portion would be ratings from material users. None of the stars in any of the audiobooks I was renwing had highlighted stars. I humorously
thought my choices might be so bad that they merited no rating at all but seriously thought that perhaps people did not rate the materials very often. My questions are this: are the ratings indeed user ratings and if so how does one go about submitting a rating? I can think of some materials that I would rate poorly and some that I would highly recommend. I looked around the website so I wouldn't bother you but found no leads on submitting ratings comments. Thank you for considering my questions. I'll watch for your answers.
So Wednesday was my first book discussion! And I have to say a good time was had by all! You know, you can still read our book discussion? It's over on Sleepy Bear's blog. You may have to scroll down a bit to get to the beginning of the conversation. It's fun to talk to friends about books. I also learned a lot about Sleepy Bear, and his friend Moosey-Moose too. Thanks Sleepy Bear for reading with us! :o)
