I'm not sure how many libraries across the country featured a "Book Cart Precision Drill Team", Storm Troopers and an AT-AT Walker from Star Wars, not to mention a large cardboard Batman in their July 4th parades. But the Kellogg-Hubbard librarians and their friends put on a pretty good show for the community on July 3rd. In fact, people are still stopping us on the street to tell us.
"I didn't know that librarians could be so funny," said one parade-goer.
Don't forget to see if there are any tickets left for The Dark Knight special screening and reception this Saturday, brought to us courtesy of Warner Bros. Pictures to honor Senator Leahy. Movie tickets were just about sold out when I last checked. In fact, when I called to order books from our jobber in Tennessee, the person on the line said, "Hey - you've been in the news!" It seems that NPR, AP, and The Washington Post have all been talking about the library in little Montpelier, thanks to Senator Leahy's loyalty to his childhood library.
