Brutus celebrates March is Reading Month

The Owosso Branch would like to thank our preschool storytime guest readers who visited during Reading Month: Mayor Benjamin Frederick, Police Sgt.Carlson, and Deputy Fire Chief Mike Bradley (who brought some friends too!).

Here are a few pictures, but you'll have to visit the Library' s Facebook page for more!

Unfortunately, Brutus was not allowed to drive the police car or the fire truck due to some silly "rules" the Department of Public Safety has. Something about a "driver's license" was mentioned, but Brutus's dog license apparently does not count. He was able to get his picture taken with both vehicles though!

Owosso's preschool storytime meets Tuesday mornings at 11 a.m. in the Children's Library. For more information, please call 725-5134. No registration is required and we are always excited to meet new friends!

Brutus Has a Diary of a Wimpy Kid Party!

Brutus was so excited today to have a huge group of kids show-up to his Diary of a Wimpy Kid party. Brutus loves to read about Greg Heffley's adventures navigating middle school and can't wait to see the movie!

Brutus was very nervous about playing some of the games. He did NOT want to get the dreaded "Cheese Touch." Here is a picture of Brutus carefully avoiding THE CHEESE which was discovered in the library's parking lot this morning.

After playing a bunch of games, Brutus and the kids got to practice drawing Greg. Brutus was so proud of himself!

Aaron Zenz's visit

Brutus enjoyed meeting Aaron Zenz and learning about how he writes and illustrates books. The kids all seemed to enjoy the program, too. Brutus has just one request--Can Aaron write about him (or another handsome dog) next time?

Brutus' Visit

Brutus was invited to spend a night at Margaret's house this weekend. He enjoyed meeting Mac (the black Scotty), Beth (the white Scotty) and Jack (the Russell Terrier). They had fun playing on the living room floor while Margaret was out shopping. Brutus is hoping to meet lots of other dogs when the kids can bring their favorite animals in for a sleepover at the library on Friday, March 19th.

Brutus did have one scary experience this weekend though. He found out that even though he believes that dogs rule, Tipper (the cat) is the Queen of the House (at least when Margaret isn't home). She had first dibs on anywhere the sun was shining, Margaret's lap, and anywhere else she wanted to be. Also, her food was totally off limits to him. He learned that cats can bite and scratch, but he is smarter than Tipper because he would never bite the hand that feeds him.
