Library Larry’s Big Day Celebrates 30th episode with “The Larry Awards”
Lights, camera, awards! Library Larry’s Big Day is celebrating its 30th episode with “The Larry Awards,” hosted by silly hippo and local television star Mr. Chompers. The show features a special song by Library Larry, and awards are given in categories like best joke, best book, and best “Puppet on the Street” segment.
Library Larry’s Big Day has produced a monthly television show for 30 straight months, starting in February of 2010. The partnership between Denton Television, the Denton Public Library, and the Denton Independent School district has resulted in numerous awards of its own, including a first-place win from TATOA (Texas Association of Telecommunications Operators and Advisors), a Branding Iron Award from the Texas Library Association, and the Margaret Irby Nichols Award from the North Texas Regional Library System.
The episode will run throughout July and August at 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. every day on DTV (Charter channel 26, Verizon channel 38, and Grande channel 12). You can also watch the episode and YouTube clips of past episodes any time at www.librarylarry.com.
