I always enjoy visiting with the friendly citizens at the Decorah Public Library!

They all love to “Dig Into Reading!”

You always have to remember, if you’re going to do any sort of digging, you might encounter some creepy crawlies!

DecorahOne

But you also might happen upon some really cool things, too, like dragon eggs!

After Decorah, I headed over the rainbow to the Ossian Public Library!

They have some really amazing hidden passages in their bookcases!

OssianOne

They have been the first library to make me sign a waiver saying that I am indeed “responsible” before they allowed me to wield a shovel in their library!

OssianThree

And, wow, were they excited to get their prizes after story time!

My final stop today is the location in our country where my loyalties are the most deep! Of course, I’m talking about the Maynard Public Library!

We held story time in the Community Hall, where the piano isn’t the best, but it will do in a pinch!

Since we were in my hometown, my mom helped me stop the mole invasion!

MaynardFour

But just because I performed at my old stomping grounds doesn’t mean I didn’t have to clean up afterwards!
