Bedtime Story Hour

On Friday night Brutus attended the bedtime story hour at the Durand Memorial Branch where he got to meet lots of kids and other stuffed animals. They all enjoyed the stories told by Grandma Parks. After story hour they had milk and cookies. Brutus had trouble dunking his cookies in the milk with his paws, but he still had fun. He'll be back for the next bedtime story hour April 17 @ 7 p.m.

Nancy's Birthday

Brutus was very upset this morning when he learned that he had missed the celebration for Nancy's birthday last night. He has been whining in his box all morning. (To think that he missed the chance to have a piece of cake which would have turned his teeth black!) How old did they say she is? She's only 39!

Brutus Meets a new staff member

Brutus recently met the newest member of the Owosso Branch's staff. He had his picture taken with Andrew at the end of his first day working as a page, and Brutus had the opportunity to ride around on the re-shelving cart as Andrew learned how to put books away. It was much more difficult than Brutus thought--he needed to know his numbers (including fractions) as well as the alphabet! Andrew found the concepts much easier, so Brutus thinks he'll let him keep the job--plus, Brutus had a much harder time reaching some of the shelves (but being pushed around on the cart was fun).

Brutus at the Book Sale

Brutus recently helped Durand Branch pages Maggie and Heather set up for the Friends of the Library book sale. He found many good books to buy, including "Harry the Dirty Dog" and "Good Dog, Carl". He could not find "Marley and Me", but he's hoping it will be available in the next sale which will be held during Durand Railroad Days May 15 & 16.

Brutus Plays Rock Band

As part of the library's Teen Tech Week celebration, Brutus tried his paws at rock stardom, playing the drums and singing in Rock Band. He thinks he did better than any of the teens, but there is some debate on that score (especially the singing). He would like to see more kids join him every Wednesday after school for Wii Wednesdays!

Brutus Attends Story Hour

Brutus visited the Preschool Story Hour yesterday. He enjoyed meeting the kids (and they liked him) as well as hearing several stories about animals. He also liked the dragon on their rug--it was almost as good as a dog. However, the highlight of the program, for him, was the craft project. There's not much better than having your own dog! Brutus and the children made Dalmations to take home. He also hopes to have a chance to go to more story hours in the future.

Brutus Reads the Paper

Brutus was thrilled to see the front page news article about the library's preschool story hour. He has even asked if he can attend next week's program at 10:30 Tuesday morning. He was told that the stories will be about animals, and he hopes that Annie includes books about dogs. He also thinks that it will fun to meet the children.
