Truly Nice Gentleman is Your Super Librarian!
You remember our glass jar cart I mentioned recently? To collect United Way donations in our "Name the MPL Super Librarian" contest?
Truly Nice Gentleman (TNG, for short) has been named MPL Super Librarian, thanks to generous charitable contributions from library patrons and staff (who were voting against themselves, I think). All proceeds go to United Way of Morgan County, Indiana, so many great causes will receive a much-needed financial boost.
Our YouTube Channel viewers may be familiar with TNG's legendary status as a member of the MPL Circulation Team. He is featured in several library videos.

TNG is my Library's personification of customer service. Nobody at MPL goes further to assist patrons. His is the standard we all should emulate. Well, when I say we, I mean, of course, my minions. As a feline, I set my own standards. That's just how it is--and should be.
Now TNG must spend a day (or more?) wearing a super librarian costume while working. Minions, make with the digital camera! We don't want to miss recording this for posterity.
Any super-hero costume suggestions? Savvy, you have a real flair for this. We could get some tremendous ideas from the Librarians on YouTube blog.

P.S. Wouldn't it be cool if we could create a video as wonderful as McCracken County Public Library's "Super Librarian" promo trailer? It's worth visiting Paducah, Kentucky just to meet her (and her super colleagues).
P.P.S. The New Jersey State Library has a great promo trailer for "Super Librarians."
