GREETINGS ALL. As promised, I've been looking at the evaluations collected at our last program. I see that a number of you are interested in Tarot reading. I want to remind you that the library owns many good books on the Tarot. You can find them in the Adult Nonfiction area at the dewey number 133.32424. I've recently done some shifting of the books on the shelves in the 100s area, so those of you who have looked for these books before might be surprised to find that they're not where you expect them to be. But don't despair, they're just arond the corner on the TOP shelf.

If you're a beginning Tarot reader, I recommend you check out one of the following:

Thanks to everyone who attended our recent program on "Psychic Reading". I've breezed through the evaluation sheets, and know that most of you had a good time and learned some things. I'll be going through these more carefully and thoroughly as soon as I have a break in my other duties, and will answer any questions and address any concerns I find.

If you forgot to indicate on the evaluation sheet that you want to be included on the email distribution list we use to notify regular attendees of upcoming programs, you can still do so.  Just supply it to any staff member at an adult area public service desk or email me at Ilona.Miklos@westlakelibrary.org.
