I am writing to you today about an amazing new opportunity…
It’s a BOOK BUZZ…
And it’s from inside OUR HOMES. [Cue music from the movie Jaws.]
Can you even imagine the technology required to produce such a thing?
All kidding aside, we miss your faces! And we’ll assume that you miss ours.
So here are our giant floating heads telling you all about new books.
Where we are in the world:
Samantha Slavin (Library Marketing Assistant) has decamped for the country. Since her wifi is spotty, she films in the kitchen. (If we’re lucky, we’ll catch a glimpse of her parents, or Austin, her adorable blind, and deaf dog.)
Emily Day (Library Marketing Coordinator + YA Specialist) is reporting to you from her home office in Brooklyn, aka her bedroom. Emily lives near Prospect Park, has 2 roommates, and an “awesome” view of the Statue of Liberty. On a dare, she once filmed from her apartment building’s roof! #daredevil
Amanda Rountree (Assistant Digital Media Manager, Library Marketing) films upstairs in a room overlooking her front yard. In addition to knowing exactly when the mail is delivered, Amanda waves hello to every dog on her block. #TELLYOURDOGISAYHI
Talia Sherer aka the boss, refuses to be on camera. “I’m responsible for advancing the slides. It’s a very important task!” But when she does have to be on camera, she begs her husband to play the role of Talia. “He’s very good at being me!”
