Playing Dress-up With Centennial History
The first of five centennial displays is up and running (well, more like standing) at my Library. You'll see it as you walk through the front entrance. The displays are part of the Library's 100th anniversary bigbash celebration, which is slated for Saturday, May 12, 2012, in case you're keeping score.
Want to see photos? Sure you do. But why reinvent the wheel? Just click here, and you will be magically transported to another, lesser Library blog.
Great pix, Queen Settler! Thanks for that cool dress, CircMaster. Kudos to the Library's consultants for their fine work on the displays.
More displays shall be forthcoming, and plenty soon. Don't miss the fun! Drop everything you're doing and come right over to my Library, straight-away. Maybe Queen Settler will do more dress-up in historically authentic period clothing. I can't wait until we reach the 1980s. She's historically authentic from that time period, too--big hair and all. Well, you'd need to see her high school yearbook photos, which I've got in the MPL
Indiana Roving Reporter Room. You can see them, for free. That's because we're a full-service Library.
Watch For More Displays,

P.S. Speaking of dresses, "Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress," by the Hollies, was a hit single from the LP Distant Light (1971, U.K.; 1972, U.S.). I just read a comment on the web suggesting that some people at the time of its release thought it was a song by Creedence Clearwater Revival. Sorry, but that's a stretch I wouldn't make. Both were great bands, however; I've featured both as musical closers.
