A Day in the Life of a Librarian



Our Marketing Department was promoting the PBR Rodeo Tour since it's appearing in town tomorrow and Saturday, so they asked the library to host PBR star Rocky McDonald, Buckshot, a Brahman bull, and Reride, the official mascot of the rodeo. It was a fun morning. Rocky read to the kids, and brought along coloring books that featured Reride. Rocky McDonald said he starting doing rodeo in high school, and found out he could go to college on a rodeo scholarship. With adults and parents, we had over 35 show up to see the bull and listen to stories.

How many Library Managers get to spend their mornings with a Brahman bull? And, you can tell from the second picture how well Reride and I got along.

Thanks, Maggie. And, the cowboy wasn't bad either, but I didn't think people wanted to drool on their keyboards.

That's quite a handsome bull. I'm glad you're on the outside of the enclosure though!

He is a handsome bull, Ellery, but I'm glad I was on that side as well!
