Brutus Wears a New Hat

Brutus was trying on hats Brenda made up for the kids Thanksgiving craft program on Wednesday, Nov. 25 at the Durand branch. Kids are invited to stop by anytime between 3 and 6 to make a fun hat. Brutus's favorite hat was the turkey, but Brenda told him she was going to wear it for the craft program so he had to share.

Brutus Meets Lucy the Therapy Dog

Brutus was at bedtime story hour Friday night at Durand, and was surprised when Lucy, a therapy dog, showed up. Lucy brought her owner, Marie Holloway, to listen to storyteller Grandma Parks with all of the kids. Lucy was well behaved during story hour but very disappointed when Brutus told her only people cookies are served afterwards. Lucy is planning to come back to the library this winter to listen to children practice reading aloud. Brutus plans to be there too.

Sorting a MeL Delivery

The Owosso Branch received an unusually large MeL (interlibrary loan) delivery this afternoon. Brutus was soon involved. At first, he wanted to play in the pile, but Barb and Margaret weren't very happy about his King (Dog) of the Mountain game. They quickly gave him a job--sniffing out the incorrectly delivered packages. When he was done, they had an entire bag of items which needed to go to other libraries, and the staff were thankful for his help.
