Have you ever seen someone in the library wearing a red shirt, vest, or sweater like the one I'm wearing? They are called Rovers. Rovers are a lot like the librarians who sit at the desk. They answer questions and help you find stuff (like lost parents) except that they walk around the library. They wear red so people can spot them easily. I'd volunteer to be one, but they tell me you have to be mobile. I'm rather stationary, myself.
Say hello to a Rover the next time you're here! You can usually find one walking around when you are out of school. They might not look so brown and fuzzy, though.
The next feature on Masterpiece will be Emma, which begins this Sunday evening.

It's not always easy to find knitting patterns for men's garments that actually look like clothing your husband, brother, or other real-life man might wear. In contrast, these patterns are all wearable, designed for comfy fibers in masculine colors and without any frilly or fussy details. As a bonus, these patterns are very easy to follow and don't involve any advanced techniques.

Guess What? My birthday is January 16th — this Saturday!!! Ironically, it happens to fall just before Storytime Teddy Bear week (by the way kids — don't forget to bring your teddy bears to Storytime next week!). I share my birthday month with some very cool people who also work at the library. And I even share a Birthday with Brad the Teen Librarian! If you are a human and you work at the library, you get the day off for your birthday. But since I live here, I get to celebrate my Birthday with all of you! Make sure you come and sing! I even accept gifts. I like cookies. After the library closes on Saturday, me and LB (remember him? My Little Buddy that Santa brought?) are going to eat cake. Honey flavored cake. Yum. I can't wait until Saturday. Happy Birthday to me....
