What do Curious George and the Bookmobile Have in Common?

We were both at the Ephrata Parade on September 24, that's what.
He wanted to drive, but his license had been revoked so...

...he just chilled on the back of his ride.

Later on C.G. decided to sign a few autographs for his many fans. Who knew he could even write?

We were joined by the hard working crew of youth who passed out 6,000 copies of a special edition of the Ephrata Public Library Newsletter and about 50 pounds of candy. Parents, here's a secret. Your kids will work for pizza!

New Flikr Photostream

We are moving our photostream to a new location. While you are there be sure to add us as a friend. Pictures from the old photostream will eventually be migrated, but for the time being can still be viewed here.

Mobile Libraries of the World

If you have ever been tempted to complain about the availability of books on the bookmobile you might take a moment to read this article about the donkeycart library in Ethiopia.

Ain't WEB 2.0 Grand

For those of you ahead of me on the Web 2.0 curve, please understand that I am old enough to remember typing papers in college on an IBM Selectric.  So for me to figure out how to post a blog via email (which I am currently doing) and have that blog digested and sent to a mailing list by email, and to have done it myself is amazing.  I know, it’s not the Starship Enterprise, but it is still cool.

New Email Digest Function

Please  forgive me for doing some experimenting in public.  While Bookmobile 2.0 has been less active over the summer, we expect to begin more actively publishing soon.  The purpose of this post and the next post is to test out an email digest of our blog that I have been toying with.  Thanks for your patience.
