Cool Press Hat, Cauliette

Cauliette has an authentic press corps hat, made especially by the Library's business manager, Sharon Hicks, whom I call the BizMeister.  It looks mighty spiffy!

We decided that Cauliette should be roving around the Library (like her namesake, only I roam outside) doing the reporter thing.  So we found an out-of-the-way spot by the Circulation Desk.

Be sure to say hello to Cauliette next time you drop by the Library.  She'll be around somewhere or other.  Maybe we should make a game out of finding her at the Library!  That could be fun.

Meet Cauliette

Cauli 4 Kids has a new spokesfeline.


Meet Cauliette, MPL feline friend 4 kids.  Huge thanks and much praise to BizMeister for making (by hand!) our stuffed version of moi.  Also, thanks to Technigal for naming Cauliette, which is a combination of the words Cauli and puppet.  Well, the -et part, anyway.

What will Cauliette be doing at our Library?  Maybe videos, like Sammy the Toucan?  Just saying, Broadway Gal.  We would need a "helper" for Cauliette, if you get my drift.

Hey, Miss Jaymi!  I'm thinking that Cauliette should be a guest on one of your early literacy blog videos.  Just saying.

Cauliette needs a roving reporter hat.  I'll have the MPL Decorinator get right on it.

P.S.  Melvil, the Kansas State Library Cat, does the same deal as Cauliette will, once we've found her a "helper."  Why doesn't the Indiana State Library have an official cat, I'm wondering?  Maybe Cauliette could work there, part-time.

Say What?

What's this video about?  Say what?  Who can answer that question?  Do you know where to look?  Why am I writing like this?

Okay, enough of that.  This week's early literacy blog video is what we want to watch.

Yes, it's the letter W w, and that means watermelons and watches.

I wonder which letter they'll cover next week?  What's your guess?  That's 'xactly what I thought, too!

Celebrate National Library Week (April 8-14, 2012)

April 8-14, 2012 is National Library Week, and the American Library Association (ALA) has some great suggestions how to celebrate.  We've made a promo trailer about it!

Missed our promo trailer from last year?  Not anymore.
