ROMP format isn’t clear

Posted

As I used to tell my children when they asked me to edit their school papers, “Read what you wrote, not what you thought.” That’s about all there is to editing. This time it’s the “Romp” summer activities listings from the libraries.

The County Library events are listed alphabetically by day of the week (Friday, Monday, Saturday, Sunday, Thursday, Tuesday and then Wednesday), and the PT Library events are listed alphabetically by the first word in each event’s title. So neither list is chronological; the dates are all over the place.

What’s happening this week? Happy Hunting!
