A Pirate’s Life For Me!

The Story Laboratory, located in the Washington Free Public Library, is always a perfect place to start your morning.

The entrance to the lab is protected by a fierce knight and his trusty steed!

It also has an elite force of seven superheroes as backup protection in case the knight falls in battle!

And, if both the brave knight and the strong superheroes are unable to keep evil out of the Story Laboratory? Well, that’s why the library has all those explosives!

Cinnamon, the Guard Rabbit!

After yesterday’s dinosaur trouble, I was excited to enjoy a relaxing visit to the Washington Free Public Library in Washington!

The library has a volcanic security system to stop any prehistoric beasties from entering the building!

After Washington, I zipped off to the Musser Public Library in Muscatine! You never [...]

Olympic Celebration!

Don’t worry, Libby the Library Dog is still standing guard [...]

Every Penguin Gets a Snow Cone!

There are lots of inspirational signs at the Washington Free Public Library. Here’s a great example: “Reading Takes You in All Directions!”

And don’t forget, “One World, Many Stories!”

Interesting. I’ve never seen a “One World, One Wardell” sign before.

A world with more than one of me would definitely make some people scream in terror!

On the other hand, think of all the crowds of kids I could entertain with an army of duplicates!

Speaking of duplicates, I encountered these two “I Love Reading” [...]

Who Wants to Buy Some Creatures?

Although the Washington Public Library picnic basket was full of books,I guess I was not supposed to eat any!

Why am I always the last to know these things?

Despite the book eating incident, after story timeI was inducted into the spider hall of fame!

And received a surprise induction into the bee hall of fame!

Yes, I was even inducted into this hall of fame! I’m not surewhat hall of fame it was, but it was certainly an honor!

That was my morning! [...]
