Help the owner raise bail!

Your local Library Moose, needs your help, well, that is my owner needs your help. From what I've heard the owner is going to jail on April 30 and needs to raise bail money. As you can see from the photo, this isn't his first brush with the law and frankly prison strips don't look good on him. The bail money is for a group called MDA and this is something the owner refers to as a charitable fundraiser. Well I too can support charity and so I the Library Moose, encourage my fans to help my owner stay out of jail or at least return after a short stint doing hard time. I worry that he might be strip searched....although the owner says that isn't possible. His jail time is to be served at a place called The Smokehouse, boy hard time sure has changed hasn't it, a chain gang it ain't...looks like a restaurant, and when it is mentioned at the library, everyone sure gets in a tizzy over stuff called garlic bread.

To help the owner out, please click HERE and go to his online MDA fundraiser page.

New herd members!

Boy was the owner suprised when he returned to work on Monday to find two new herd members waiting to meet him. One was sitting in his mailbox, the other one, [quite the large fellow isn't he] was perched up top of the mailboxes in the library. Being a Moose myself, I didn't know that we could climb to such heights. Well anyways, welcome to the herd boys!

Awwwww Nuts!!!

Originally uploaded by library.moose

My owner went to Detroit and all I got was nuts...and leftover Southwest Airline nuts at that! Not that I don't like nuts but really, wasn't there a handoutor give away from the vendor exhibits at his SirsiDynix Superconference that would have made a better souvenir for his loyal friend...namely me?

From what he confessed, the pickings were slim and the nuts were about as good a goodie as there was.

The owner said that many attendees have noticed a decline in such handouts, SirsiDynix used to have neat coffee mugs, one year cups, another year glowing pens as give aways. Company gets bigger, goodies disappear. Unfortunately, this is pretty much the case with most of the vendors. Maybe next year in Dallas will be better.

Owner update.

The owner has been in contact with me, he is back in town and will be back at work on Monday, although he will be found helping out at the Burbank READS program featuring retired astronaut, Vance Brand.  He does say that he brought me back some goodies from his Detroit, SirsiDynix Superconference trip...I wonder what he got me?  I love gifts, and as you may recall, when he went on his baseball trip last summer I got an autographed Moose Skowron baseball, I hope that this goodie is as good.  But what does one get at a conference?  Particularly a ILS conference, do you get a new server? A new piece of software? Time will tell but this Moose is very curious.
The owner is also quite happy in having finally found some Moose Drool beer at the local BevMo store.
I will let everyone know about my conference goodie as soon as I can...

The owner wanted me to post these pictures of Stephen Abram from his speech at the close of the SirsiDynix Superconference. The owner said that Stephen is willing to trade a gently used blue sweater  vest for red drink tickets.

Be careful, beware the "Evil Librarians"

Sssh, a quick update while the owner is in Detroit at a conference. I have come across and just read an amazingly frightening book that details that our world is ruled and governed by a class [not Dewey or LC either] of Evil Librarians. Well that would explain a lot of things to this moose that is for sure.

Read Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians by Brandon Sanderson for yourself and draw your own conclusions. Librarians will claim that this book is "juvenile fiction", I tell you it is the truth.
Be afraid, be very afraid.

My herd and I will try and do our best against this threat to society.
