I kicked off my final week of the Reading Road Trip with a visit to the Fort Dodge Public Library. Every week there is a summer reading secret password and I was honored to discover that today it was IPTV!

After story time, Doctor Sam Schnauzer, renowned canine professor, was available to give a short presentation on the microscopic bacteria that are responsible for doggy breath.

Before leaving town, I had to pop in to see the brand new International Robot Museum. As you would suspect, I was in robot heaven.

When I arrived at the Rockwell City Public Library, I discovered a couple of the robots from Fort Dodge had followed me. Oh well, the more the merrier!

To celebrate my final week, the librarians baked me a special cake! However, with today’s humid heat, it spoiled pretty quickly.
