On Thursday, August 24, intrepid MPK staff members Gina DeLisle and Zach Kirchberg chased and captured a baby chipmunk who had run into the building. Using rubber gloves and a waste basket, they caught the little fellow and set him free outside. For their fine work, they have recevied the coveted Teddy Bear Good Job Trophy. Way to go, guys!

Here's what we see every Monday morning and after a holiday. The book drop bin is so small, we have to pull it out and let everything fall on the floor!

Welcome to MPK

Welcome! We are the 8 staff members of the Myers Park Branch of the Public Library and Mecklenburg County (PLCMC). Myers Park was built in 1956, the first of PLCMC's 24 branches. It will be 50 years old in October! As a birthday present, the building is scheduled for renovation in 2007. In the meantime, we 8 work in very tight quarters!
