Faux Animal Kingdom Invades MPL Youth Services

Herds of faux animals have invaded the youth services department of my library.  Greeted by (mostly) delighted shrieks from younger people patrons, these slow-moving, primarily inert members of the nonhuman animal kingdom are encamped throughout the book stacks of the children's collections.  Thanks to my alert photographer, the Lady With the Red Hair, we have digitally captured some of these elusive creatures.

Faux scurrydog, who might just try to steal my supper

Faux frozen flipper birds--papa and baby

Faux Teddy in apparent hibernation (surely not inebriation!)

Famous faux felines of Lion King fame

Faux Clifford, the Big Red Slobberdog, along with Tigger and Sylvester, famous animated felines

My faux big cousins

Another faux cousin, along with a treecrawler and a good ol' bear

These guys really make youth services a warm and welcoming place.  Little people patrons should enjoy browsing the bookshelves along with these friendly fellows.  It's nice to have such pleasant, peaceful volunteers helping out our hardworking youth services staff.

Faux Animals are Better Than No Animals, and More Cuddly,

  1. That's quite a zoo you have there! I've been catching up on your blog, and I hope you and your staff are well on you way to being thawed out in Mooresville.

    About my old desk. . . well, see, here we play Musical Desks. MY old desk went to AAB Cathie, and Cathie's desk went to AAB Ritche, and Ritchie's desk went to AAB Kathy, and Kathy's desk went Away because it was broken. Someone got it for Free because it had a broken leg. We are big time Recyclers!

  2. Musical desks sounds like fun! Are there prizes? Preferably kitty treats? (No slobberdog bacon treats, however; they give me the winds.)
