A Friday Fun TwoFer

Have you had a chance to vote in the Doodle 4 Google contest? If not, it is not too late to view all the wonderful submissions that made it to the finals and then vote for your favorites by this Sunday, May 18.

Doodle 4 Google is a competition where K-12 students were invited to reinvent Google's homepage logo around the theme of"What if...?" Thousands of doodles were submitted and 40 finalists have been selected. Each doodle also contains a caption that expands upon the "What if..." statement. For example:

What if everyone recycled? Would Earth have a chance for survival? If we start today imagine what can happen tomorrow.

What if the whole world rocked? I think that people can express themselves in a creative and energetic way with music. I think that the whole world would be happier if they rocked out to the music they love.

Great thoughts and great doodles galore! The votes will help select a national winner to replace the usual logo on the Google homepage on May 22, 2008.

Now for the TwoFer deal:

The manager of adult services at MPOW recently reactivated a long neglected blog that never quite got off the ground for its original purpose and turned it in to what we have started to call "The Reference Gong Show". Check out PPL Reference, a blog where we are discussing each week an item from our reference collection and whether or not the librarians on staff vote to keep it or let it go. Budgets are tight and we are trying to determine the best use of our funds. The entries and work we are doing is serious, but the comments often stray to the humorous. (This perhaps could have gone under the heading of "steal this idea", but I felt like it was twofer type of day).
