A Mighty Storm?

This morning’s story time was so close to the river that I almost went fishing before my performance!

However, I don’t think the crowd at the Clinton Public Library would have appreciated it if I showed up smelling like fish!

And, I’m pretty sure the librarians would have put me in the doghouse if I tracked fish slime into their building!

Clifford and Emily Elizabeth would still have loved me though! They never get mad at anyone!

Later, at the Davenport Public Library, everyone [...]

Olympic Celebration!

This morning, I discovered the Washington Free Public Library has Olympic Fever!

They treated me as if I was the greatest Olympic athlete on the planet!

I wasn’t the only Healthy Hero in the building! The story time room was completely filled with Healthy Heroes!

However, there were a few who still needed my healthy message regarding portion size!

During my afternoon stop, I learned there was a new protector of the Davenport Public Library!

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

Something’s in the Air!

Today I celebrated this summer’s tenth Reading Road Trip stop in DeWitt with some of my favorite things. There were large crowds!

There were puppets, puppets, and more puppets!

Later that day, at the Davenport Public Library, it was “Bring Your Dog to Work Day!”

Strangely enough, it was also “Can Your Horse Jump Through a Hoop Day.”

It seemed [...]

Pirate Infestation!

I always like it when I visit because no one is ever crabby!

Well, maybe Dr. Tentacles can be a little grouchy sometimes. I think that is because he is kept behind glass.

I didn’t know this, but the Davenport Public Library has a pretty big pirate infestation.

You just never know when a pirate is going to try to sneak off with your box [...]

Every Castle Needs…

Every castle needs a few jesters.

Every castle needs a few princesses.

Every castle needs a few knights.

And every castle definitely needs a few farmers.

That’s where I was this morning: the castle known as the Davenport Public Library.

I also had a colorful afternoon at the Bettendorf Public Library.

Everything was going well until I accidentally knocked over that fish tank!

Story time and reading are both music to my ears.

It reminds me of my days back in the Wartburg College Wind Ensemble.
