Hi all --


With the arrival of our new children's librarian Jennifer Fischer, Crook
County Library recently got its own puppet mascot. His name is Alfonso
Alpaca and the children all love him so. I saw on Facebook that Newport
Public Library recently acquired Pongo the baby orangutan. Deschutes has
Rockie Racoon. I know other libraries in Oregon have other puppets.


Would anyone be interested in having a "who has the best puppet" competition
over Facebook/Insta? I'm thinking National Library Week is a good time to
have it; I dunno about you, but the stuff we've got on tap for NLW is a bit
dry. We did a similar competition with Driftwood Library during Summer
Reading many years ago, and it really boosted our social media presences.
Lots and lots of clicks. 

So if you're reading this and you have a puppet... I'm thinking we each make
YouTube videos where our respective puppets give stump speeches about why
they should win, then we have a poll on Google Forms. The losing puppets
have to make a video of themselves singing a song to the winning puppet. I'm
totally open to other ideas, too.

It'd also be funny if one library wanted to make an obviously tossed-off
paper bag puppet to run as a dark horse candidate.

Anyway, think about it. Have a puppety day,
