Connect Your Summer
LB's had a busy couple of weeks. Not only was he traversing around Cape Cod, but he just back from a trip in the Northern Michigan visiting one of our relatives, Uncle Smokey the Bear! Uncle Smokey has the very important job of reminding people of the dangers of forest fires. And he gets to wear a cool Park Ranger's Hat. He even has his own website! Uncle Smokey's a pretty tech-savvy bear! Of course, I'm pretty tech-savvy myself. I just don't have a website that's all my own. Check out LB's adventure over on flickr! And don't forget you just have one more week to earn badges in Connect Your Summer!
LB earned us another badge from Connect Your Summer. Here's some pictures of him earning the Traveler Badge! He traveled to Massachusetts and, apparently, back in time! He visited Plymouth and saw the Plymouth Rock. Funny. LB says it's in a great big cage. I think they think it may try to run away! And then he got to tour the Mayflower II. It's not the original ship, but is a full-scale replica that sailed from Great Britain to Plymouth in 1957 just like the real Mayflower did! LB says he would have visited Plimoth Plantation as well, but it was over 100 degrees (a little warm for a fur coat!) so he settled on visiting the beach instead.
This has got me wanting to learn more about the Pilgrims, so I checked what we had to offer here at CPL. Found a lot of great books! I didn't really check them out (because I never leave the library) so, if YOU want to, they are all still here! Happy Reading!
The Best in Show Dog Show was a lot of fun! We took a lot more pictures than just these, which we'll put up soon; but for now, enjoy these snaps of our canine friends and their families as they entered or exited the show.

I'm on a roll now! I went to Outdoor Storytime today and earned my Reader badge! I have to admit… it was a little warm outside! But I think that's because I have my big fur coat. Storytime was super fun. I heard neat stories about Dots and a pig who likes pancakes. That second story made me hungry. I like pancakes too! It was so fun to see so many families outside enjoying stories today. I made lots of new friends and had a great time! Head over to Flickr to see the fun we had this morning!

We're on a roll now! Thanks to the neat Three Cities Art Show here at the library this weekend, I earned another badge! The Artist Badge! First, I went and looked at all the art work and voted for my favorites. Then, I was feeling inspired, so I asked Miss Michelle to help me find some fun art books. And, Boy! Did she find me some! She even stopped to read a book with me! I like to read books by myself, but I really like to read books with people too. Three Badges down, seven to go. What Badge are you working on?
