Does this also have something to do with the Right to Bear Arms?

Hi All

I thought I would share about our super fun bear election we have going
on at our library! We took an idea I heard first here on Libs-or (don't
remember from who) and added a bit of a twist. In honor of election
season we are running four bears, Pooh, Paddington, Corduroy, and Mama
Bear, and each bear has a campaign manager on our staff. Competition is
fierce and I think our staff is having even more fun with the project
than the kids! My colleagues have embraced their roles as campaign
managers beyond my wildest dreams and designed posters, stickers, a
video, signs, and bookmarks for their favorite bear. Pooh has even made
his way onto our check-out receipts!

I knew this would be an amazing project to celebrate democracy and
children's literature but what I didn't expect is that it has become a
terrific team-building and creativity exercise for staff.

Some photos can be seen on our West Linn Library Facebook page and the
video can be seen here:

Thank you to whomever out there suggested a bear election!
