The Howard County library is having a party this afternoon to celebrate its winning the Gale/Library Journal Library of the Year award.
it's a family event at the Miller branch in Ellicott City from 4 to 7 pm with the children's rock band Milkshake, free ice cream and popsicles, food trucks, and the farmers market. The band is playing 5-6 pm.
I'm a huge fan of the library -- for regular books and for cookbooks. So now you can get free books and free ice cream. What could be better?
