Twist and Shout!

Omigosh you guys this place has been SOOOO busy this summer!  We've had movies and raptor-birds and a carnival and make-things-with-clay-day and a gross-out program (complete with Kitty Litter Cake) and LOTS of really short tiny people at story times and I am just so exhausted from all of the excitement:

Today we had three awesome Twisters from Balloongenuity visit and make amazing creations for summer readers of all ages!  They made ladybug bracelets, alligators, flowers, butterflies, wearable butterfly wings, fishing poles (with fishes), frogs, turtles. . . the list goes on!

Here are some of the cool things they made for library staff:

Lady-Bug Bracelet
 Of course, I had to test their Twisting smarts before they left for the day.  Notice anything they HADN'T made yet?

Yep, no Cat!

So here's the extra-special Tober the Library Cat they made for us:

I've been Balloonified!
Here's a kind of sideways view.  Check out the magnificent tail:

Balloon Tober is downstairs in the Youth Department way up high on the snack chiller where AB Christine seems to think I won't be able to get him.  (I don't have front toenails, but my mighty sharp teeth could do some harm.)

The Balloongenuity ladies were fantastic.  They brought music and about eleventy bazillion balloons, and some lucky children even got TWO things (but no cats)!  It was a great time!

I'm really happy that my library has been super-busy this summer.  That means lots of people are reading great books, watching great movies, attending great programs, using our Internets and fax machine and copier, and also stopping by to admire me.  (Mostly seeing me, but I don't want to the books and movies and fax machine to get jealous.)

However, a Boss Cat really needs time for Handsome Naps (like Beauty Sleep for humans, only shorter and more effective).

Hope you're all having purrfect summers!
