It's the dog days of summer, which means it's that time again. Time for Gate Counts-A-Palooza! Games, rides, tickets, a giant stuffed panda that you can't possibly carry all day.
Ok, well, none of that stuff. But you still get to collect those fabulous gate counts!

Sunday, August 17th through Saturday August 23rd.

Stay cool out there my book worms,

Gate counts start THIS Sunday, July 6th and run through Saturday, July 12th.

That is all. At ease troops. And Happy 4th of July. Happy Birthday America!

It's dangerous to go alone, take an hourly gate count with you!

Starting this Sunday, June 8th, please take the hourly gate counts through Saturday, July 14th. Thanks so much!

You have the right to take hourly gate counts.
Any counts you take can and will be used for planning .
You have the right to a gate count sheet.
If you cannot afford a gate count sheets, one will be provided for you.
Do you understand these rights as they have been written for you?

I think you'll find, if you cooperate, however, things will be much easier for you. Gate counts start Sunday, May 11th and end Saturday, May 17th. Watch your head.

Attention Students!

Gate counts are happening once again this weekend. I apologize for having almost back to back instances of hourly gate counts, but alas, it must happen.

Please remember to take the gate counts once an hour every hour we are open starting this Sunday, April 6th through Saturday, April 12th. Please and many thank yous!

I whistled for a pen, and clipboard in hand,
I went and took the counts like my supervisor demands.
The counts were so high that I couldn't believe,
and I though, 'nah forget it, it's almost time to leave!'

I. Pulled. Into the library about seven forty five,
Feeling so tired I was barely alive.
I looked at my kingdom, it was not too shabby,
To sit on my throne, at the Walter Library.

[We have two week of hourly gate counts coming up pretty close to each other. Starting this Sunday, 3/23, remember your hourly gate counts every hour, on the hour. Thanks!]

Listen to a story all about how
My life got flipped turned upside down
Now I'd like to take a minute just sit on down
And I'll tell you how I became the Prince of a Hourly Gate Counts.

Southeast Minneapolis, born and raised,
In the library is where I spent most of my days.
Chillin' out, reading, shelving all cool,
Helping check out books inside of the school.

When a couple of guys, who never were here
Started showing up upstairs and everywhere
I counted two gates a day and my supervisor got scared
He said you're taking the Gate Counts every hour, and that's fair.

To be continued...

Hey everybody!

Are you ready for wall-to-wall action? Can you handle the excitement dripping from every raw, action-packed moment? Are you ready for your eyelids to melt like Raiders of the Lost Ark?

Then you have to check out this week's HOURLY GATE COUNTS. It's the most extreme new... thing. Starting this Sunday check out the outrageous gate counts every hour, from 12/15-12/21! You won't believe your eyes! Extreme!

Now that you've all done your monster-mashing and graveyard smashing, its time for everybody's REAL favorite time of year. Hourly Gate Counts Season!

Running from Sunday, November 3rd to Saturday, November 9th, the 2013 Gate Count Season is almost upon us. So while you're sipping your gate count flavored coffees and playing games like bobbing for gate counts, please don't forget to record the gate counts every hour.

Because before you know it, Gate Count Season will be over! :'-( And you don't want to miss out on the action!

Every hour, someone in the United States is diagnosed with Gate Count-Related Amnesia. Luckily there is a way you can help.

By taking the gate count every hour, you can help fight for a cure against Gate Count-Related Amnesia. For every gate count you record, Tim Engelstad will personally donate one six-digit number to IADS Stats, a gate count-related department at the University of Minnesota. Together, we can help fight the cause of Gate Count-Related Amnesia.

Remember to attend the Fun Run Walk for the Numbers all week, September 22nd-28th. The walk will take place in a 10ft loop from the Circ desk to the security gates.

Thanks,
Tim
