A Very Inaccurate Rainbow Tube!

This morning I blasted into the Sioux Center Public Library with bells on!

There were 100 more enthusiastic rascals in attendance than there were when I last visited in 2014!

It took a little convincing, but I made sure everyone realized that when I say “turn the TV off,” it also means video and computer games, too!

My dear friend, Supergirl, allowed me to use her magical rainbow tube to transport from the library to my next stop!

However, it turns out that the [...]

The Forbidden Basketballs!

This morning was a beautifully sunny way to start the day’s triple-header!

300 people came out to celebrate fun and adventure at the Sioux Center Public Library!

Three of those three hundred included a local mad scientist and her two lab assistants!

This afternoon, when I pulled into the Sioux Center Public Library, the librarians were right there willing to help me unload! And wait, they were all wearing their pajamas!

In fact, many kids in the audience were wearing [...]

Didgeridoos for Everyone!

This morning, at the Sioux Center Public Library, I discovered EVERYONE wears capes! The kids wear capes!

The librarians wear capes!

Even the maintenance staff wears capes!

I wonder if those who are yet to be born wear capes?

There were no capes at my next stop, the Akron Public Library, but there were vans full of kids eager to hear story time!

During story time there was a small earthquake and an amazing archaeological site was discovered under the library.

At the dig site we [...]
