This morning was a beautifully sunny way to start the day’s triple-header!
300 people came out to celebrate fun and adventure at the Sioux Center Public Library!
Three of those three hundred included a local mad scientist and her two lab assistants!
I wish I could have stayed longer to learn a new wacky experiment or two, but I had to set sail for my next location!
The Akron Public Library was my second stop of the day. The town is home to Dr. Manufacto R. Creatinski. The R stands for ROBOTOSAURUS!
In addition to giant robots, he is the inventor of the incredibly useful paper-eating robot!
And, few know this, but Dr. Creatinski is also credited with inventing bowling with fruits and vegetables!
I got so wrapped up in a few games of bowling that I was going to be late for my last stop of the day. Luckily, the librarians let me borrow their fastest jet pack, and I was off!
My final destination was the Alta Community Library. We held story time in the high school gym, but unfortunately they had the basketballs locked up so I couldn’t shoot any hoops.
I think the balls were in lock-down so they wouldn’t accidentally bounce off these spiky heads and pop.
However, the hula hoops were freely available, and we hula hooped until just seconds before story time.
Once 4:00 hit, it was time to put the toys away, and to weave one final story time full of magic and wonder for the day!
