Peaceful transition

We pride ourselves here on a tradition of peaceful transition of power.  That doesn't mean it is easy to let go. Take a look at MMRL's hand off to MOSL.

This name plate is in the mail today.
Congrats again to the MISSOURI STATE LIBRARY!

And the winner is...

Missouri State Library Book Blog 

FYI - the Missouri State Library doesn't have time for your excuses, this team read like the wind blowing on a mountain top.  They rather handily handed the rest of us our hats this year.
Actually many teams did a great job this year but the big competition was for second place.  Runners up include:
2nd place - JCL reads
4th place - MRRL River Readers
6th place - SJPL Reads

We are hoping for some photos of the trophy exchange...there was a "mix-up" at MLA that resulted in a delivery problem.  Luckily the trophy is staying in Jefferson City so it will be easily sorted.

Congrats to all the teams for another year of heated competition.  Let's see if we can get that trophy to travel a little further next year!
