Not a Good Sleeping Spot For Moi

Where'd this display case come from?


I found it last Saturday in my Library's Youth Services Department.




I immediately assessed the situation with my shrewd feline observational powers.
  • It was empty--utterly devoid of kitty snacks or soft fabric or blankets for cat napping.
  • It was illuminated by a fluorescent lightbulb.
  • It has doors to keep non-felines out.
I wonder how comfortable this would be as a snooze-spot?



Not a Good Snoozing Spot For Moi

I wonder what Broadway Gal has in mind for this display case?  What should she put in there?


Great display, Broadway Gal!  These are old classic children's books from our juvenile collections, and--you'll like this--the books circulate, if you have an Evergreen Indiana library card.





So, how old are these books, you may ask?


Hey, Broadway Gal.  Some of these books are older than, say, Boss Lady, Scowl-Face, CircMaster, Cataloger Queen, or CompuGal.  Some are even older than the Decorinator or Office Meister.

So, now I'll get in trouble for making some of my colleagues seem as ancient as Methuselah.  Hey, age is a venerated trait.  These folks should have statues erected in their honor because they have acquired the wisdom that comes with maturity.

I bet that didn't extricate moi from hot water.  Well, none of my senior colleagues is old.  Working in my Library keeps everyone young in mind, heart, and spirit.

Drop by the MPL Youth Services Department to check-out one of these wonderful classic books.  Read like your grandparents used to do when they were your age, youngsters!  That was back when chapter books had more words than pictures.

P.S.  "Golden Years," by David Bowie, might be an appropriate musical closer for this posting.  Then again, maybe not.  The song was initially released as a single (1975) but was subsequently included on Bowie's LP Station to Station (1976).

  1. Books don't need the same level of napping comfort as kitties do - not even old books!
