A New Video Champion -- Wild Thang!
Wild Thang, former MPL early literacy specialist but still willing to sub for absent Library staff when she can fit it into her new work schedule, made the "Animal Alphabet Song" video for her early literacy blog. Within the next few days, hers will become the most viewed video on the MPL YouTube Channel.
Which video did "Animal Alphabet Song" leave eating its dust? Well, as it happens, our most popular book trailer.
Both videos should clear 32,000 viewings next week. But it is clear that Wild Thang's will be our new most popular video. It currently is watched over 8,000 times a month. For us, that's staggering.
Congratulations, Wild Thang. Too bad you're not still working here full-time. We could really use your creativity. Now we're stuck with Scowl-Face for video ideas. You can imagine how that's working out. Fortunately, Savvy and Programma Mama are working now on video blogging, so we're looking forward to their continuing development.

P.S. "The Winner Takes It All," by ABBA, seemed like an appropriate musical closer. The song appeared on the album Super Trouper (1980).
