Welcome, TV's Amanda

UPDATE:  Anthony Woodside wrote a very nice article about TV's Amanda in the Mooresville-Decatur Times, Wednesday, February 14, 2018, at pages A1-A7.

Let's welcome my library's new youth services librarian, TV's Amanda (TVA for short).  See if you can guess of which television series she's a big fan.

As you can see, TV's Amanda knows how to have some fun.

Longtime readers know that I give all my colleagues nicknames, and TV's Amanda is no exception.  Why "TV's Amanda"?  Well, avid fans of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K) know that Frank Conniff played a character called TV's Frank, because he was a "sidekick" (or, as he called it, "second banana") of Dr. Clayton Forrester, the "mad scientist" on the show who forced Joel Robinson (and, later, Mike Nelson) and the 'Bots to watch the worst movies ever made.  That's not why I'm calling her TV's Amanda, though.  She's nobody's second banana.  No offense, Frank.  (Now, push the button, Frank.)

I call our new youth services librarian TV's Amanda because her ancestor was a pioneer inventor and developer of early television.  That's so cool!  Television must be part of her DNA.  If so, does she get better reception when she holds her arms up like she's a football referee signalling a touchdown?  Just asking.

TV's Amanda will be handling our early literacy (preschool) children's programs, as well as homeschool and elementary school aged programs.  Here's a list of what's coming at the end of January.  You may also look over our online events calendar to see upcoming programs.

I'm glad to have TV's Amanda as my newest minion.  Just a view pointers, TVA.  Feeding times for moi are pretty much whatever it says on the clock.  Canned tuna-in-oil is my favorite.  Also, I like back scratches but not so much tummy rubs.  Although you may work for Casey at the Bat and Boss Lady, you really work for everyone's favorite feline roving reporter.  I may be retired, but I'm still a cat.

It's great to have you on board, TV's Amanda.  Now get to work.

P.S.  Let's watch TV's Frank from an episode of MST3K.
