A blessed 2010 to all!

Let this coming year be better than all the others. Vow to do some of the things you've always wanted to do but couldn't find the time. Call up a forgotten friend. Drop an old grudge, and replace it with some pleasant memories. Vow not to make a promise you don't think you can keep. Walk tall, and smile more. You'll look ten years younger. Don't be afraid to say, 'I love you'. Say it again. They are the sweetest words in the world. Ann Landers

May the 2010 bring more blessings to all STRLC librarians and friends! Thank you for the continued support and we hope that together we can make 2010 memorable. On behalf of the PLAI-STRLC Board, cheers to all who have been part of the STRLC family and we welcome too our new members! God bless us all!
