For those who were not able to partake, our second annual Christmas Parade Party was a great success, though the parade was significantly smaller than in past years. Entries included pirate re-enactors, Lowcountry Basset Hound Rescue, and the usual assortment of late-model convertibles with poorly-spelled posters alerting spectators that they were in the presence of the Junior King and Queen of various fraternal organizations. Of particular interest were the entries for the US Department of Homeland Security, Division of Customs and Border Patrol. One Customs van stopped in front of the Library Society, and a small boy asked the agent if he could ride in his truck. The officer smiled and responded that all of his trips are "one-way."
Since the holidays are upon us, we are all still looking for those last minute gift ideas. Though it is late, the Library Society is still taking orders for gift memberships. Give us a call at 843-723-9912, and we will make sure that your special someone receives the wonderful gift of one year of Charleston Library Society membership.
Thanks for a great year, and we hope to see you often in 2009!
Read a book (preferably something by Dickens)!
