Fury Birds!

Although my flight to the Council Bluffs Public Library was a bit bumpy, the skilled staff at air traffic control helped us land safely.

Not everyone who came to the library was there to enjoy story time and adventure!

Some library patrons were there to attend the “Brilliant Minds of America Convention.” Obviously, I fit right in!

The workshop on “Making Amazing Potions in Three Easy Steps” was especially informative and included hands-on activities!

On my way to the afternoon’s adventures I noticed this [...]

A Few Days Off?

Reviews were mixed this morning for my performances at the Council Bluffs Public Library!

Perhaps I’m losing my storytelling powers. Maybe I should take a few days off and go fishing.

If I go fishing I should probably go camping, too!

And, if I go camping I should probably roast marshmallows!

During the afternoon, I took a flight on a butterfly and flew to the Sidney Public Library.

When you arrive by butterfly you probably should plan on reporters showing up to ask questions!

I wondered [...]

My Co-workers Love to Sing!

I wasn’t too upset. After all, it’s much more fun giving away prizes than receiving prizes! The [...]

The Final Week Begins!

When I arrived at the Council Bluffs Public Library this morning it became clear that parking was going to be an adventure. The parking lot was under construction!

There was construction going on inside too!

Luckily, a little construction won’t keep the Council Bluff’s masses from attending story time!

My event even marked the last performance for their 2011 summer reading club.

I arrived at this afternoon’s story time at the Silver City Public Library so early that I got to put together some [...]

The Beach Ball Bash Begins!

I love pulling into an empty library parking lot.

When my friends in Council Bluffs see the IPTV truck, the parking lot doesn’t stay empty for long. This morning after we arrived, crowds started to form.

The crowds grew!

And then they grew some more!

You never know who you might meet at story time. You might meet a super hero or two or even three!

You might meet someone with snakes in their hair!

Snakes or no snakes, my library story times are all filled [...]
