Ninja Strike!

Over 450 people showed up to my story times this morning at the Waverly Public Library!

Thanks to a little advice I read in a book, I was even able to keep the babies entertained!

A few patrons thought by buddying up to me, they might have a better chance at winning the summer reading bikes!

However, when Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman are on call, you know the reading raffle will be fair and just.

Later, I had no problem finding the West [...]

The “New” City Council!

I graduated from Wartburg College in 1998. This morning I found myself just a few blocks down the road at the Waverly Public Library.

And, this is the first time I’ve ever climbed up a vine and took a warp cloud to my next city!

When I arrived at the Waverly Public Library, there [...]

I Do Love a Good Swing Set!

Yesterday morning’s story time wasn’t in the Waverly Public Librarybut in the elementary school building next door!

That’s because the floods had relocatedWaverly City Hall to the library’s story time room!

Of course, that meant we got to play on all the school’s playground equipment!

My favorite part was the swing set!

The Iowa Falls Public Library had swings outside too,but they were tougher to swing on!

I quickly learned that everyone in Iowa Falls loves to read!

Even these two octopus brothers!

And after story time? [...]
