Next up for projects within the music library is a “Name the Aloe Plant” competition!
The music library recently attained an aloe plant and the idea was had to having a naming competition in which our patrons could participate by submitting ideas and voting. The music library had done something similar in the past when they set up J.S. Baaaach as their mascot, and they found that it was a great morale and community booster within the library. By holding this competition during the last two weeks of the semester (which are usually the most stressful time for students), we hope to offer some stress relief and fun as they go into their finals.
First up will be the contest announcement and the name submissions. This will start next week, so I am currently preparing the polls and ballots that we will use during the competition. Soon I will take some photos for the music library’s social media accounts to help spread the word. We will collect submissions for about a week, choose our top favorites, and then hold a second round of voting.
This should be fun!
