Twice a year the library's staff development committee sponsors a staff development week. There is usually a luncheon and several speakers during the week, with the big event being the staff field trip. The staff visits a library, museum, or other cultural institution somewhere in the state. This week's trip took us to Raleigh where we visited the North Carolina History and Natural Science Museums. What is great about these trips is we can bring family if we drive ourselves. My little girl loves the museums and this was the last chance for a trip before the school year starts. We really enjoyed the history of NC exhibit and the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts exhibit. At the science museum, my little one got to pet a rat snake and an alligator - far braver than I. Was a nice break from the usual day, and a good chance to revert to tutor for a day. Definitely a day well spent, and I am thankful for the opportunity.

Museum of History - NASCAR is big here, and my daughter and husband enjoyed checking out the Intimidator's #3 Chevy.
The dinosaurs are always a favorite. Thank you Dino Train and Land Before Time.
