2012 Summer Reading Kickoff

Last Friday, June 1, 2012, my Library held its annual summer reading bigbash.  Broadway Gal, Wild Thang, Savvy, Miss Alicia, Cataloger Queen, and many of MPL's other top-notch staff (as opposed to bottom-notched?  But Scowl-Face was A.W.O.L. at this event) were present to assist patrons in signing-up for adult, teen, and children's summer reading programs.  Patrons had loads of fun with the many engaging activities, including an outdoor movie with free popcorn.  It doesn't get any better than that.

If you sadly missed all the excitement, we've got some photos, thanks to Boss Lady, I'm thinking.

where exciting activities aplenty were happenin'


What types of fun activities were happening, you might ask?  When my minions were busy elsewhere, I tried out the climbing wall moiself.  Mighty cool, I must say!  I don't know why those handholds were there, though.  My claws worked quite nicely.

Great turnout, considering it was cold enough to make my tail fur stand on its end.  Congrats to Broadway Gal and her phenomenal youth services team.  Thanks to all the great library staff and volunteers for your invaluable services.  Great photos, Boss Lady.  We've got a new official digital camera operator, I'm thinking.

Even if you missed this primo event, you may still sign-up for summer reading.  Did I mention there were prizes?  Our website has details.

There are three convenient ways to sign-up:

  • Sign-up at the library on your next visit;

Sign-Up Sooner Than Later,

P.S.  When I think of kickoffs, I think of American football. The Chicago Bears performed "The Superbowl Shuffle" (1985) in a rap music video that was wildly popular, back in the day.  Bears fans still speak reverently about it.
