New library FlashMobbed! Crowds cheer!

24 hours + Facebook + 5 emails (+ lots of forwarding) + active community = FlashMob success

Thanks to many Ferndale, Oak Park and Pleasant Ridge residents who turned out for our impromptu picture session.  In addition to nearly the entire city council and our county commissioner, our very-short-notice appeal drew families, seniors, and all manner of present and future Friends, nearly a hundred in all.  Thanks, too, to Ann Warner, who is not only the President of the Library Board but also the artist behind the camera lens with the patience to wait while we all gathered, waved and shouted.

If you should encounter Ferndale Friends editor Steffie Loveless as she bikes around Ferndale, suggest to her that this picture would make an excellent front cover for our almost-namesake in the world of journalism.
