Our Usual Valentine's Day Madness

I know, I know - Valentine's Day was yesterday and once the weekend is passed, the stores have moved onto St. Patrick's Day, Passover and Easter. I wasn't ready! Making videos for YouTube is an inexact science and I was also enjoying the photos we took on Snapshot Day. Consider this silly little video your intermission while you wait for a full video of all the Snapshot Day photos. I finally have all the pictures from our 9 different photographers so I need a day or two to put them all together.

We seem to have developed a tradition for Valentine's videos here at DPPL and this year was no exception. Watch us overact, listen to me oversing, and (I hope) laugh at our dramatic portrayal of how difficult it can be to part with the library books and movies you have truly, madly, deeply enjoyed.


  1. I loved the part about "releasing [the books] from this prison." My husband has been calling libraries "prisons for books" for years. Of course, that hasn't stopped us from making good and frequent use of our local libraries over the years. When we check the books out, it's sort of like a work-release program for them...

  2. I LOVED the video even though I watched it past Valentine's day. It resonates with me as a very frequent patron of the library, but I still spend far too much at Amazon. That way I get to keep them.

  3. I just loved the video, the music, the singing, the acting, the drama, the humor. It was great. It and video catnip are my favorites though we watch Miss Marple, Poirot, A Touch of Frost, Midsomer Murders and other mysteries from the Library. ~Maggie K.

  4. "Time to Say Goodbye" is one of my favorite songs, although saying goodbye is usually not one of my favorite things to have to do in life. (Great new take on the lyrics Karen!) Our library actors have as much fun making these videos as we do watching and listening to them. I hope we'll be seeing more videos on our new program monitors at the library.
