Ms. Snickers has returned!! Yes, it’s true! Ms. Snickers having recently returned from a much-needed vacation, and then retuning to her home library of Boxford, has decided that Dracut is the place she wants to be! She has graciously allowed us to take a few minutes from her busy schedule in order to interview her. She is a celebrated blogger on Dracut Library’s WordPress page, but this was a great opportunity to speak with her one-on-one. Ms. Snickers, thank you.
Snickers: It’s great to be here.
Interviewer: Please tell us, how was your vacation?
Snickers: Fantastic! I really enjoyed getting some sun. The winters here in New England are beautiful but brutal, and this seems to be the worst in a long time. I took a lovely cruise. The nightlife was incredible; what singing and dancing! And the pools and beaches during the day were just what I needed. I simply fell into my shavings every night from such great fun-filled days!
Interviewer: That’s wonderful, Ms. Snickers. Now, part of the reason we are here today is we’ve heard you’re making a big announcement. Is that true?
Snickers: Well, yes. After much soul-searching, I decided that Dracut is just the right environment in which I would like to continue to work. I have officially given my resignation at Boxford, and am now the Full-Time Children’s Hamster Librarian in Dracut. It’s very exciting. I’m really looking forward to having a great impact on the Children’s Room and the wonderful children and families who come in. There is so much good reading and programming to take in, and I am grateful for the chance to do this on a full-time basis in Dracut. And on top of that, I will get an opportunity to work with our new part time children and young adult librarians. This is exciting times in Dracut!
Interviewer: What great news! And we are grateful for your decision to share it with us in this exclusive interview.
It is with great sadness we bid farewell to Ms. Snickers, our Children’s room visiting librarian. After a longer than anticipated stay with us, Ms. Snickers has been called back to her home at the Boxford Library. Originally, her stay was scheduled to be for 21 days, but problems with renovations at the Boxford Library extended her stay. While a member of the Dracut staff, Ms. Snicker’s engaged in public relations, encouraging children and adults to read “anything they could get their paws on”!
“She was great fun”, commented Diane Annunziato at Ms. Snicker’s farewell party. “She brought smiles to the entire staff, and her knowledge of children’s literature was second to none!” When news of Ms. Snicker’s departure was announced to the staff, it was decided that Ms. Snickers should be rewarded with a vacation from the harsh New England weather before returning to Boxford. Because rates are cheaper for Robo Hamsters, the staff was able to pool together the funds to send Ms. Snickers on and all expense paid Disney Cruise! Thankfully, she was able to fly out of Logan late Tuesday night before this last snow storm hit. Au revoir Miss Snickers! Thank You for all your help – and Good Luck back in Boxford – we’re sure the children missed you while you were gone! (We’ll miss you too!!!) Last we looked, she had already tweeted a picture of herself on the cruise and writes:
Having a splendid time! Thank you to everyone in Dracut!
Your Library Rocks – Use it!
Ms. Penny was on vacation this past week. That made me sad. I like seeing all the crafts the little people make during story hours. So imagine my excitement when the staff pitched in to create a wonderful turkey display for our lobby! So much cutting and pasting! I really wanted to help, but they told me I was their guest and that I should just be available to great all the people who wanted to say hello. They were right, of course, because I met some wonderful children! It made me think about how thankful I am to all the people who have stopped by in the last two weeks to see me. I really missed my home at the Boxford Library, but everyone in Dracut has made me feel like this is home. I then started to think about all the other things I had to be thankful for too: I have great food, a warm bed, a little wheel so I can stretch my legs…everything a hamster could want. I bet you have many things to be thankful for too.
Imagine my surprise when I heard that some people aren’t as lucky as I am?!? Did you know that some people don’t have enough food to eat? One of my little visitors told me the Dracut Food Pantry could use our help! Would you consider dropping off some non-perishable food at the library? The ladies said they would make sure the Dracut Food Pantry received it. I really want to help, but I’m too tiny to lift up can goods – so I’ve made this special costume…I think you should be grateful that I’m the one wearing it and not anyone else on the library staff!

Good Morning! Or Afternoon! Or Evening! I’m not sure what time it is anymore! Goodness me this week has been full of all sorts of adjustments for me. First, my move out of the Boxford Library. Then my move to the Children’s Room in Dracut! It has been a grand adventure!
I’ve always dreamed of travel. Being a library resident, I have read everything I can get my paws on! I have traveled to places in my imagination, discovered new worlds, and met people of all different nationalities – just by reading! For me, there is nothing like sitting in my cedar chips at night with a tall bottle of water and a great book! From what I can see, Dracut has a wonderful selection of children’s books for all ages! From the youngest pre-readers to those energetic middle schoolers, this library has something for everyone. And Ms. Penny and Ms. Louise are fabulous! I’ve seen them pull books off the shelves for young ones, like magicians pulling rabbits out of hats! What a jolly good show! Excuse my enthusium…I often get carried away when I see the joy on the face of someone who is handed that magical book, knowing that soon, they too, will be transported into their imagination! Ahhh…what a glorious place to be!
