Have I told you I am former children’s librarian who can’t stop talking about libraries? I have some great stories from my working days at the library! Someday, if we meet in person, I’ll tell you the story of “Stephanie’s Ponytail.” Welcome to the third week of a new feature called “Library Life”, bringing you the weekend’s library events happening around the area, from Louisville to Prospect to New Albany and places in between. This week’s Louisville Library Life feature has been extended to Mondays. Usually when I start researching the events for the weekend, I always see something cool happening on a Monday and want to include it! Let’s get started with this weekend’s featured library happenings, brought to you by a Louisville Free Public Library insider.
