And the winners are....
Hello all! Sorry for the delay in blogging--I'm back in business now! And the first order of that business is to congratulate this month's winners in the Year Of North American Indigenous Peoples contest! JAMIE LANDERS is our first place winner for her review of the film The New World. She received a stylish 'Year Of" t-shirt and a 4-gig flash drive from the Year Of committee. Coming in with a close second-place finish is CONSTANCE CHASE with an excellent review of the book Power and Place: Indian Education in America. Constance also received a t-shirt. Congratulations!
Speaking of those stylish tees, our library director and "Year Of" chairman Michael Martinez has informed me that we are now selling the t-shirts at a special reduced rate for students: $10!
Of course, every month brings a new opportunity to win a shirt. Just see one of our "Year Of" movies or read a "Year Of" book, write a brief (one- or two-paragraph) review, and submit it to public services librarian Karen Preslock at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each month's winner receives a t-shirt and flash drive, and ALL participants will be entered into the drawing at the end of the year for the Nintendo Wii. Entering more than once improves your odds!
