MPL Program Registration Made Easy

There are more library programs scheduled for the summer than you can shake a stick at.

Some of our Library programs require advance registration.  So, how to?  (You may well ask.)  Three ways:

  • Visit the MPL Website Online Calendar and click the activity name for which you wish to register; then complete and submit the online form.  This will require your user ID number from a valid, current MPL Library Card (shown below).

  • Call (317) 831-7323 and ask for the designated staff or department (if any were listed in the promotional materials).  If not, then whoever you are speaking with may assist you.

  • Email with your name, library card user ID number, and the title and date of the event for which you wish to be registered, along with any other requested information.  (NOTE:  This option should be a last resort, since the other two are more direct and immediate forms of communication.)

MPL library cards look like this:

User ID numbers appear on the back of the cards.

Not so hard to register as it might at first appear.  So simple that even Scowl Face can do it.  Now, then, get cracking!  Space is limited, and time's a'wastin' (says Snuffy Smith).   (If I did that joke already, I apologize.)  Don't be left out in the cold!  It's cold out there!  Well, not right now, because it's late spring in Indiana, with pleasant breezes, interspersed with too much rain, and upper 70-degree temperatures (Fahrenheit, since we Yanks are out-of-step with the rest of the meteorological world, which uses Celsius).  Use this handy online converter to compare the differences between these two systems.  (Hey, didn't I talk about this F. vs. C. temperature thing before?  I thought so.)  I need some new staff writers, like Sid Caesar used on Your Show of Shows (1950-1954) and Caesar's Hour (1954-1957).  If your public library has DVDs of any of these television programs, check them out, watch them, and laugh aloud.  Plenty.

P.S.  Calling on the telephone to register reminded me of "Operator (That's Not the Way It Feels)," by Jim Croce, from the album You Don't Mess Around With Jim (1972).  Since this is such a great tune, here's a live performance from June 15, 1973 on the television program The Midnight Special.

P.P.S.  This is a cute sketch from a 1953 episode of Your Show of Shows.
