Brutus made a new friend today. He read a story to Breeah, a young library user. Both of them had a good time, and Brutus hopes to see Breeah many more times.

Lego Block Party & Happy Thanksgiving

Brutus is having fun this morning playing in the Lego and Duplo blocks. He is hoping that some kids will build him a dog house. He finds the blocks hard to handle with his paws and mouth. Would someone with fingers please help him! If you can't make today's Lego Block Party, be sure to join us on December 20th for the next one.

Brutus has also been sniffing around the cookbooks today and hinting that someone on the staff should invite him to Thanksgiving dinner. Turkey, mashed potatoes, dressing and pies sound a lot better than dog food. He's heard that Margaret can make a really good apple pie! Along with the entire staff, Brutus wishes all his friends and library users a Happy Thanksgiving.

"Old Friends Are Best"

"Old friends are best" according to Francis Bacon, and Brutus agrees. He enjoyed seeing the antiques which were brought into the library on Saturday. He never knew that so many people had so many interesting items.

About 150 items were appraised by Mike Gaylord of "Everything Classic" radio show. Some people waited until after 7 p.m. for their turn. Brutus loved the Abraham Lincoln log cabin quilt from the 1890's and the old soda fountain. (Too bad it wasn't working; he'd like to try some Vernors). The most fun though was playing on the spinning wheel. Unfortunately, that got him crated for the rest of the night--he didn't know that it wasn't a toy! (It dated back to the 1870's in Pennsylvania).

The only things Brutus didn't care for featured cats. Doesn't anyone collect dogs? However, Margaret was impressed with the cat ink well and bronze statue which were both quite valuable.

Brutus and the library staff would like to thank Mike Gaylord for his time and the appraisals and Young Buick GMC for sponsoring this program.
