The Doras, Show Trailers, Facebook Pages and the Library

Complete list of Dora Mavor Moore nominations here! It’s been a solid year of theatre – congratulations to all!

This is awesome.

Get your show trailer on Praxis.

Also awesome (from Mashable) – Facebook Finally Lets Page Admins Schedule Posts, Have Different Roles.
Now don’t get carried away with the scheduling and the walking away – it is not a Showtime Rotisserie where you’re gonna set it and forget it. Facebook pages require interaction, back and forth, question and answer, call and response – it’s a dialogue, right? I’m all for scheduling some posts, but not all of them. I did try it out last week, it did post on the correct date, but not at the right time. Which I knew because I was paying attention. Off you go – give it a shot with a completely unimportant update nad start playing around from there.

Have something on hold at the library? Do not forget to pick it up or they’ll charge you a dollar, it’s a new thing – the unpicked up hold fine.  The library has a whole slew of new ways to manage your holds and get them on time, though.
Can’t believe they’re charging you a dollar? I can. It’s another one of those crazy things I love about the library – the hold system.

“I want to read this book. But it’s at a library all the way across town.”

“Oh. Which one? Let us know and we’ll send someone to pick it up and bring it somewhere closer to you so you can read it. And we’ll email or call you to let you know it’s here. “

“But wait – how much will it cost me to do that?”

“Oh, it’s free. But you have to pick it up on time.”

Considering the base rate for any package delivered by cab in this city is ten bucks…

Happy Wednesday!
