Comment of the Day!


I'm so sorry that you had a less than perfect experience at my shop. The 8 scooper can be quite overwhelming. I prefer the 4 scooper. It is much more manageable, and two of them are exactly the same cost of the 8 scooper. I understand that it was your first time at one of our crazy events. Some savvy customers with similar eating habits as yours do bring washed out egg cartons. Which we are happy to oblige. I'm sorry you were told no for separate bowls that you requested, but the scoopers were instructed to stick to the menu for the day. After almost 10 years of doing this I feel like I worked out an efficient system. I encourage you to please try out our crazy flavor day the second weekend of July. Same premise as chocolate night just not all chocolate. So the colors are different.

The Daily GLOB


Happy Wednesday!

GLOBmaster2017Hey GLOBers we are almost there/  F - R - I - D - A - Y is just around the corning .  I can see it from where I sit!!!  So you need to start thinking about the weekend and all the good things that entails.  The GLOB Master doesn't have any plans yet but the Warhol Caldwell show tonight looks interesting . . .



THE STRONGER - At the Black C Art Gallery TONIGHT ONLY. Directed by Lauren Warhol Caldwell and featuring Sara Morsey and Ani Collier.  This story is adapted from August Strindberg’s THE STRONGER with additional dialogue from Mistress of Many Moons by Sylvia Brownrigg and Lauren Warhol Caldwell.  Mrs. X and Ms. Y. They find one another in a cafe on Christmas Eve. What do they have in common? What are their differences? Who has what to say? And more importantly, at the end of their encounter, which one is the stronger?


Museum Holiday Camps -  Enjoy school holidays at the Florida Museum! and dive into the sciences and investigate natural history through activities and hands-on exploration.  Scientific tools and equipment are some of the coolest aspects of science. Join us for a day of lab experiments as we test the density of objects, study the pH of liquids and use microscopes to examine our own saliva! Learn proper lab safety while examining the world around us scientifically.  Students must be enrolled in grades K-5 for the 2019-2020 school year.




ACLIB Author Series Kicks Off with Dr. Ibram X. Kendi!
For the 2020 Author Series, we start off with historian Dr. Ibram X. Kendi who will present his newest book, How to Be an Antiracist, in conversation with Gainesville Mayor Lauren Poe.  Kendi will present his new book and answer questions from Mayor Poe on Thursday, Nov. 21 at 12:30 pm at Library Headquarters in Meeting Room A.   In How to be an Antiracist, Kendi weaves memoir and social commentary to challenge readers to re-examine their beliefs and envision how to create an antiracist society. Kendi was a professor at UF when he was awarded the National Book Award in 2016. He is currently a professor and the founding director of The Antiracist Research & Policy Center at American University in Washington, D.C.
