Friends’ “Blue” will make you green with envy
Posted October 26, 2009on:
The meeting room wall in the Murphy Library that was an “eeew” off white last week is now a sparkling “Friends’ Blue” this week. The work started with the professional services of Bob Smith, a local painter who donated his time priming the wall on Friday.
Then came Monday, the day of reckoning. Youth Services Librarian Sarah Arnaudin and her friend Emilie Jones took on the wall. Emilie is one of the moms who brings her two wonderful children, Gates and Liam to Storytime. In fact, it was Emilie who suggested the wall could be a show-stopper at Storytime with just the right shade of paint. As we volunteers know all too well – no good suggestion goes unpunished. Here are the results of the day. Even I coudn’t resist picking up a brush.
And finally, the blue was on the wall.
Then Emilie took out her saw, put on her safety glasses and went to work on The Blackboard Project. She and Sarah measured and cut a board to cover with blackboard paint. It will be installed at child height and Sarah can write out the weekly Storytime theme for all the children to see.
Everyone played well and there were no fights.
