Brutus Wants to Go Canoeing

Brutus recently found himself up the creek (or Shiawassee River) without either the proverbal canoe or paddle. He is hoping to win the free canoe or kayak trip which will given away at Doc Fletcher's program next week. You can give Brutus some competition by attending the free program at the Owosso Branch on Wednesday, April 28th at 7 p.m., but you must be present to win. Fletcher will present an hour-long photographic journey down selected rivers featured in his books. Refreshments will be served and books will be available for purchase. Brutus doesn't need to be the only lucky dog!

Edible Books Contest

Brutus enjoyed looking over the imaginative Edible Book creations at the Durand Memorial Branch last night. He wanted to chase the rabbits, but staff had to explain they were cakes, not real. He even got his own piece of bunny cake. Brutus was disappointed there weren't any Edible Books based on dog books, but he's hoping there will be some next year. In 2011 the contest will be held at both Owosso and Durand locations.

Brutus Takes In a Show!

Brutus was thrilled to attend the Owosso Library Puppeteer's performance of "The Tortoise and The Hare" last Tuesday. More than 40 people joined him at that show to watch the epic race of a speedy hare and a slow, yet steady tortoise. Brutus enjoyed the show, particularly the pizza delivery walrus who also raps.

Many of the people in attendance commented on the library's "new" puppet theater. In fact, it is the same theater with a a few new paint, trim, and lights. We think it looks like a million bucks though and are so grateful to the volunteer who helped give our puppet theater a new look!

Spring Break Craft Program in Durand

Brutus had fun today at the craft program at the Durand branch when he helped the kids make wind socks. He's looking forward to the next craft time on Earth Day, April 22. Kids can drop in anytime between 2 and 5 to make bird feeders. Brutus doesn't get to chase birds, but he does love to bark at them.

Brutus on Spring Break!

Brutus is so excited for his Spring Break. The weather is gorgeous, so he decided to borrow a pair of Miss Anne's super-stylish shades and read some books. He also thought he'd check out some audiobooks because they are great for listening to if he decided to take a road trip on his vacation.

Brutus hopes everyone in Owosso and Durand has a safe and fun Break. He also invites anyone interested to the Owosso branch's puppet shows performances of "The Tortoise and the Hare."
