As I pulled into my first library this morning the sign read “Welcome to Murray!”
The Murray Public Library loves Iowa Public Television’s kid shows!
Who ever said small libraries can’t draw big crowds?
Sometimes small libraries are the best place to catch big fun.
In the afternoon we met a world famous pirate bookworm at the Garrett Memorial Library.
Pirate bookworms guard treasure of course!
And as you can see, treasure hunting can include anvils, capes, and minotaurs charging towards you!
Great fun today, but the most fun part of my travels is helping kids sign up for library cards. Abraham Lincoln would be proud.
Dan’s Wise Advice of the Day: Rarely can you use the treasure you find at the bottom of a cereal box to pay for college.
