From David, Mike, and of course, Cow
Cow is back from another whirlwind tour of libraries. Friday morning, March 13, she was at the Moo-ra Public library (ECRL) with 56 attendees and that afternoon she was at the Aitkin branch of ECRL performing for 83 folks. Saturday morning 54 kids and adults showed up to see her in North Branch and 109 people crowded into the basement of the Cambridge Public Library in the afternoon to meet this famous bovine (both Saturday locations were in ECRL). Finally on Sunday she entertained an audience of 47, including Once Upon a Reader’s very own Melissa Brechon, in the MELSA region at Forest Lake where all of the kids received their own autographed copy of MOO!
Mike Wohnoutka and David LaRochelle were especially impressed with how on the ball the librarians have been, with amazing publicity in ECRL plus Vicki Sorn, Cortney Wyant, and Patty Thompson showed up at each of these four shows to make sure everything was ready for the Once Upon a Reader – Moo trunk show. There was an amazing display of activities with Suzanne at the Forest Lake Library as Washington County Library celebrates the Month of Moo!
David shared photos of their adventures, mostly of Cow. She wanted to send more, but he had to put a limit. Cow was very well received at all five shows. Check out her Flickr pix. Cow is napping, getting her beauty sleep for her star performances in Woodbury next Saturday.
