    I was surprised to see this lovely photo! Your blog is inspiring and I referred to it frequently while setting up our own international elementary school library. Thank you for sharing all your wisdom with us! Greetings from a librarian in Austria (not too far from Admont!!) πŸ˜‰

    • How wonderful to read that my blog has been some help to you all the way ‘over the pond’. Thank you for your lovely comment. Have you seen this library for yourself? It must be an amazing experience.
