This morning, the sign at the Mason City Public Library said “SPARK a Reaction!” So, of course, I tried to do exactly as it said.
Unfortunately, my “spark” caused a little bigger reaction than anyone was expecting.
Somehow I accidentally transformed one of the library’s houseplants into a strange abomination.
Luckily, my damage was easily undone thanks to the help of the librarians and some reversal potions that they had on hand.
Later, the kids showed up to the Lake Mills Public Library in great numbers!
The crowd taught me that if you stick your tongue out, it increases your chances of being noticed.
After story time, I had the honor of signing my very first cast of the summer.
Before I left, the librarians offered me juice, tea, and coffee. I politely declined. Can you imagine what I would be like with sugar and caffeine racing through my veins?
My last stop on today’s voyage was the Swaledale Public Library.
As I was reading a short pamphlet about the history of the town, I learned that they still have dinosaurs roaming around.
It was hard to believe the ancient thunder lizards were not extinct, but the librarian showed me an actual dinosaur egg.
And, I certainly wouldn’t have believed the egg was real, but then it hatched the cutest baby dino you ever did see!
