Postcards From YA Summer Readers

Broadway Gal told me that the MPL Youth Services Department has been exchanging postcards with other library teen (young adult) summer readers.  Approximately 60 libraries were sent postcards, and many responded.  The postcards are on display in my Library's YAZ (Young Adult Zone).

Summer Reader Postcards From
Libraries All Across the USA


I wish we had room in this post to show you all the cards, which my minions dutifully photographed, but they're posted to the MPL Flickr account.  Click here to see them all.  I've selected a few to show you.










As you can see, all these teens are pretty pumped up about summer reading at their libraries.  And well they should be!  Summer reading is, surely and truly (. . . wait for it . . .), the cat's pajamas.  (We've all heard that expression, but what does it mean?  Let's have a look.)


Cat's PJs = One Unhappy Feline

Don't even think of dressing me up like that.  I've got claws on all four paws, and I know how to use them.  (Hey, that sounds like a lyric to a song!  Somebody want to put it to music?  Maybe finish the lyrics?  Say, Music Man, make with the musical notation.  The Lady With the Red Hair is good with lyrics.  Scowl-Face, not so much.)

I noticed, by the way, that NONE of these postcards was addressed to moi.  This calls for a Cauli postcard writing series from around the world!  Minions, you know what to do.  Mail your postcards to moi to this address:  Mooresville Public Library, Attn: Cauli Postcards, 220 West Harrison Street, Mooresville, IN 46158.  I'll be waiting by my Library's mailbox.  I could use some treats, too, if you're asking.  And I think you're asking.




 
Looking Forward to Receiving MY Postcards,

P.S.  "Please Mr. Postman" seems an obvious musical closer for today's post (hey, there's an unintended bonus pun).  Here is the version by The Marvelettes (1961), which was the group's debut single and was the first Motown Records release to reach number one on the Billboard pop singles charts (it also topped Billboard's R & B charts).
