Week Eleven–and we’re loving libraries!

Hey, kids, it’s National Library Week!

Was that a yawn I heard in the back row? Shame on you—especially now that the world is listening to a giant sucking sound as one piece of the economy after another goes down the pipes. Not the library. The library is safe refuge, whether it’s escaping with a good book, researching the job market, having a place to do your homework, or learning a language. WE LOVE LIBRARIES.

If you love libraries—or a specific librarian—too, write and tell us about it, and you could win a copy of The Language of Bees, AND your library win a complete set of the Russell/Holmes novels. I bet they’d let you borrow them before anyone else. Go to the Fifteen Weeks of Bees contests page and look at week 11.  Which this is.

And if you’re interested in winning a copy of The Language of Bees, you really should dig out your video camera and come up with a YouTube submission—I guess LRK readers are shy, because there are so few of them, your chance of winning is good.

And now, you can find out what’s happening in Mary Russell’s adventures, over at Myspace.

    A friend and I did make a video but sadly we don’t have the right cords to transfer it to the computer! She is going to get them but it will not be in time for the contest. 🙁 We will eventually post it though!:-)

    Oh Staci, what a pity! Isn’t there anyone else around whom you could ask to borrow you a cord? I am SO looking forward to your contribution … Maybe The Powers That Be could extend the contest deadline for a few days to allow you 8and hopefully some other video artists as well) to submit your video?

    I don’t know. My friend was the one who was handling all of the editing and uploading. She’s 60 miles away and I only get to talk to her once a week on the phone. She called me last night to say she didn’t have the right cords but was going to get them but just not in time for the deadline. I was all excited too. If The Powers That May Be extended the deadline we could maybe get it in but even then I’m not sure. As I said though, we will eventually get it online…it’s just not going to be right now.
