My Felicity for this lovely Friday is....the library!
My stacked strips blocks got a lot of attention in my last post - most people agreed they looked like stacked books and I'm going with that theme. Books make me think of the library, because I don't buy many books at all. I read too quickly to make buying novels worthwhile, and most information I need for quilting is available online or at one of my very favourite places in the whole world: the library.
My library, Vancouver Public Library, is wonderful. A brand new community branch just opened up not far from where I live (thank you, 2010 Olympics infrastructure!), and I am fortunate to work not far from the main downtown branch.

VPL has a program whereby you can request that they acquire a book for their collection. I am pretty sure the VMQG exec have been busy - new modern quilting titles are being added all the time.
Libraries are critical community resources, especially in tough economic times: they give people access to computers (for job searches), periodicals, research etc. etc. They can act as community hubs, learning centres, and perhaps a safe warm place to rest. Support your local library!
Have a great weekend!
