Walk-Ins Can Play This Game

MPL patrons have a brand new local history game to play.  The catch is that you have to come to the Library to participate.  Apologies to our web-based friends.


Mooresville History Hunters!

How well do you know your hometown history?

·          Can you identify WHAT, WHERE & approximately WHEN this photo was taken?

·         Patrons may find the answers in the MPL “Treasure Trove” handouts on our website (mooresvillelib.org).

·         Correct identifications of the photo subject, place, and the closest date will be included in a drawing to WIN a FREE local history book!

·         Winners (one per week) will be selected EVERY THURSDAY, beginning January 3, 2013.

·         New Photos will be featured each week.

·         Patrons must visit the Library to fill-out an entry form (name, phone number or email address) to drop into our entry box—Be sure to indicate week number!

·         Winners will be notified by email or phone.

Walk-ins should fill-out the contest entry forms.  Here's an important detail missing from the signs:  Write your answer on the back of the sign-up slip.  Scowl-Face forgot about that!

Speaking of our Indiana Roving Reporter Room historian, I asked Scowl-Face why only our walk-in patrons were eligible to participate in this contest.  He said it had to do with the distribution restrictions for the prizes (local history books).  They may only be given to walk-in patrons, he said.

Why not offer another prize for online patrons, I queried.  Ol' Scowlly shrugged.  "We don't have a funding source for online prizes," he explained.  "Sorry, folks."  But I already covered that base.

Clearly, Scowl-Face needs to devise a local history contest for our online patrons.  Get to work on it, Scowlly.  Cauli tie-ins will substantially enhance participation, I'd wager.

P.S.  Speaking of patrons walking into my Library, "Walking on Sunshine," by Katrina and the Waves, appeared on the self-titled LP (1985).  Here's the band's music video from back in the day.
