Son of Moose Drool

Well really good news for all of us Burbankians (Moose and Human
alike) as the owner reports that he went by the new BevMo store in The
Empire Center and found that they carried "Moose Drool". Alas the
store was sold out but he has promised to migrate to BevMo regularly
and check for when more becomes available. The owner, in a show of
brewery solidarity did by some "Scape Goat". We all know that it
won't be nearly as amoosing a bouquet as "Moose Drool" but let him
keep his delusions.

Upcoming holiday.

The owner has been gleefully stating that this year will soon see a rare holiday, something called "Paddy O'Bunny Day".  I guess I will have to wait and see what this is, as I don't have a recollection, and no habitat photographs exist to document this holiday.  Sounds a bit unusual one Moost say.

What an Moosetacular Event!






As you can see, Thursday's preschool storytime, that's PSST in human librarian speak, was quiet the moosetacular event. The books read included "Looking for a Moose" by Phyllis Root; "Moose Tracks" by Karma Wilson and "The useful moose : a truthful, moose-full tale" by Fiona Robinson.

PSST also featured a Moose craft [there was enough moose for everyone!] and the following poem by Arlo Guthrie.



Mooses Come Walking

by Arlo Guthrie

Mooses come walking over the hill
Mooses come walking, they rarely stand still
When mooses come walking they go where they will
When mooses come walking over the hill
Mooses look into your window at night
They look to the left and they look to the right
The mooses are smiling, they think it's a zoo
And that's why the mooses like looking at you
So, if you see mooses while lying in bed
It's best to just stay there pretending you're dead
The mooses will leave and you'll get the thrill
Of seeing the mooses go over the hill

Cleaning and primping.

Wow the owner took down the Christmas habitat and has now put of
Valentine's Day or as we call it here, "The Moose of Love". Turns
out, from what the owner said, that me and the herd are having
visitors tomorrow, hence the cleaning. Mr. K, a Children's Librarian,
is doing the first ever Moose themed preschool storytime and will be
bringing the little ones by to visit me and the herd. Quite an honor,
so we clean and primp to look our best and put our best hooves
forward. Hopefully one of the library herd members will take
photographs to document this historic event! I'll let you know how it
goes.

A Brief Word to support my humans.



Hey there, it is time for this moose to get up upon his pulpit here to drum up some awareness of what his humans in the library will be involved in. Yep, it is soon time for Burbank READS 2008. A great program to bring people together reading the same book, sharing, talking and just having a good time. You can keep up to date on the various moosings about Burbank READS at their new blog http://burbankreads.blogspot.com/. What is that curious reader, you want to know what book everyone in Burbank will be reading, well that is a secret until February 5 when it shall be revealed. I will give you a hint though, despite my efforts at lobbying, this book doesn't feature us noble moose. I must confess, I fear this is a terrible mistake after all, what is more unifying and popular than everyone's admiration and enjoyment of Moose?

Gotta question...Ask Wiki!

My owner showed me a new library website, those clever humans have put together what is called a Wiki. All this Moose knows is it contains some good and useful information on where to find out about things. Visit it and take a look! http://burbank.wikidot.com/ The library humans promise to add more information to it all of the time. I will say, it does have room for improvement as it does not have one bit of information about Moose. Seems like a glaring ommision in this Moose's book, but maybe as they make improvements...but I do think that I shall visit the Wiki to see what I can learn about and you should too!
