Brutus Enters the Photography Contest

Brutus is all set to enter the library's photography contest, as soon as he can find a subject for his picture.  Since the pictures must be taken at night or in low light to fit this summer's theme--Reading by the Northern Lights--he is carrying his trusty flashlight as well as a camera.  Brutus isn't eligible for one of the prizes which will be gift cards from Wal-Mart, but he can't wait to see the pictures submitted.   The deadline for submissions is Saturday, July 28th with voting by the public for a winner the following week.

Brutus Meets Jackie, Gary & Cooper

Brutus is enjoying Jackie & Gary's music this afternoon.  He is also planning on attending this evening's program at 7 p.m. as several staff members say that they remember the New Christie Minstrels.  He also met Cooper, their dog (who is in the background).  They had a good time getting acquainted, and Brutus hopes to visit with Cooper again tonight as well as you.  (By the way, Brutus behaved himself this morning and did not chase the magician's rabbit).

Summer Programs

Brutus is excited about Tuesday, June 26th.  He is going to be busy all day at library programs.  Bill the Baffling Magician will be at the library at 11 a.m.  Brutus wondered if he will be allowed to chase Gus the Rabbit; but he has been told that if he does that, Bill might make make him disappear.  If he disappears will he still be able to enjoy the two musical programs later in the day?

Jackie and Gary will be performing at 2:30 p.m. for the kids and at 7 p.m. for the entire family.  Jackie used to sing for the New Christie Minstrels and Gary is a retired music teacher.  They do a fun program with lots of action for the children; Brutus hopes to join in and meet their dog Cooper who will also be attending.  The evening program will feature classical and original folk music.  Cooper will also be at that show so Brutus is hoping for more time to visit with his new friend.  Also, are dogs allowed to join in a song-along?
