Did you know that there is more than one Fremont Library? This year, we did a postcard exchange with Fremont Public Library in Mundelein, Illinois. They sent us pictures they drew of their favorite places in their town, and we sent them drawings of our favorite places. What topped the list here: Lake Elizabeth, the playground, and the library. There: the library, Six Flags, and a local ice cream parlor.
The librarian from Mundelein shared a few fun stories about people who have called their library, trying to sign up for their programs – though the callers were from Fremont, CA. We’ve had a few people come in for preschool jam…which they signed up for…though it is held at the Fremont Library in Mundelein, not the Fremont Library in Fremont, California.
How many places do you think have your same street name, city name, or even people who have YOUR name? As our summer reading game has just ended (the theme being “Have Book, Will Travel”), why not pop into the library to do some research on a place with twin names? Or a person with your name?
And do be careful about signing up for programs at the Fremont Library…in California.
