The Wrong Shirt!

The Carroll Public Library always holds my story time in the local recreation center. Of course, that means if I show up early, I get to participate in the Flex and Stretch class.

A good morning workout is just what I needed to get the audience laughing!

The crowds were so large, some centurions had to block the entrance to prevent anyone else from entering the auditorium!

Afterwards, I joined a couple superheroes for a rousing game of soccer!

As I found out this morning, the Carroll Public Library is home to many Championship Readers!

I also learned that families arrive to events so early that there is always time for a quick game of “Find-the-Geek!”

There was quite a rumble during story time as a train went through town. It was so loud, kids thought it was an earthquake and covered their heads!

All the commotion caused a family of super-heroes to stop in to see if there was a problem.
