Tober's Minions Banish Winter With Hoodie Hoo

Last Friday (February 20, 2015) was the annual Hoodie Hoo Day at Thorntown (Indiana) Public Library, when TPL staff and friends banished winter with a hearty "hoodie hoooooo!" Tober, TPL Boss Cat, has a video of all the excitement.

It was 12 degrees Fahrenheit outside when they recorded this video clip, so this was probably the coldest Hoodie Hoo ever.  The next day, central Indiana was hit with around eight inches of snow.  I guess Winter was a tad bit irked at being banished.

Still, TPL gave Jack Frost the proverbial business, so things should begin warming around here soon.  Not this week, when we'll once again have bitter cold, but these things take time.

Tober, of course, was inside the library, safe and warm.  We felines have some sense.  That's why we have minions to perform the necessary grunt-work.

Brownsburg Lures Another From Our Nest

Programma Mama is leaving MPL to work at Brownsburg (Indiana) Public Library (BPL).

For years, MPL and BPL have been raiding each others' staff rosters. They've lured several of our staff away, and then we've lured some of them back.  I've blogged about it before. With Programma Mama, BPL is now ahead on number of our staff scooped up.  We'll just have to make an appealing offer to one of theirs now.  Say, any of you BPL librarians want to work with Scowl-Face?  Wait, I said an appealing offer.

Okay, let's start again.  Hey, BPL staffers!  Join the MPL crew and work with moi.  It doesn't get any better than this.  They should be stampeding our way any time.

Seriously, we extend our congratulations to Programma Mama on her new position at BPL. It's a wonderful library, and she will surely enjoy working with her new colleagues and patrons.

P.S.  In this episode of MEG-A-RAE (#29, March 13, 2013), Programma Mama bid a tearful farewell to Savvy.  Now it's Programma Mama's turn. Maybe Savvy will send us a video clip wishing her good fortune.  Fair's fair, after all.

What's All the Hoopla (Now With Promo Trailer)

Recently I asked what all the hoopla was about at my Library.  Guess I should watch this promo trailer to find out.

Hoopla is coming to MPL in mid-March 2015.  More details are available on our website.
