A Blog is Born!
Although it sounds like a bad 1950s sci-fi movie title, the likes of which would be ripe for riffing on Mystery Science Theater 3000 (1989-ca. 2002), it is, at least, apropos to say that "a blog is born"!
Go Forth, and Blogify
Not exactly the Biblical mandate, but here we are with this brand new blog, and so now we must find a proper use for it. As the Indiana Room librarian at Mooresville Public Library (in Mooresville, Morgan County, Indiana), I have at my disposal a plethora of historical materials begging to be shared--well, if not quite begging, then at least politely asking.
Local History, Videos, Book Trailers, and More!
This blog, then, will showcase the local history of Mooresville, Indiana, and vicinity, as well as the MPL Indiana Room collections. We will include historical photographs, columns, videos, book trailers, and program information. A treasure trove of history awaits! Like most treasures, it will require some digging, which is hard on one's back, but the rewards are more than compensatory.
Join me on this historic venture! Our quest is the holy grail. What's the air speed velocity of a sparrow --er-- sorry, that's from Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1974). Well, there's, like, gobs of treasure, okay? Trust me on this.
Glad to have you aboard, squire.

P.S. I know that's not a real word--although histrionically is, and it would serve in a pinch here--but there have to be some latitudes in blogging, don't you think? Possibly some longitudes, too, but I'm no geographer.
