I went through my website’s library and deleted some of the images.
Also updated the new books and movies on the carousel.

…I’m amazed at what you’ve taught me regarding Canva and the website so far. It’s all very interesting and I’m getting faster at it.

Thanks, Anne. I got everything fixed and exactly the way I want it. I even updated the book and dvd carousels on my own today. I am really, really pleased and after today feel confident that I know how to do the basics of tinkering with this website. Thank you for encouraging me to do these little fixes myself :).
