World Lightweight Champion

You know what my favorite sport is? Boxing! I can jump in boxes, lie in boxes, chew on boxes, bat box lids, sleep in boxes, jump out of boxes, and even tip boxes over. No box can defeat me!

Summer Reading Kickoff

Make plans to be at the library for the Summer Reading Program kickoff Friday May 27 at 1:00.

But what happens when she decides to host her own show when the class takes a field trip to a radio station? Look for Frankly, Frannie by AJ Stern in the juvenile fiction section. Wow, I’m only one and I have the best job in the world…being a library cat!

Time Travel

Where would I go if I had a time machine? Why, ancient Egypt of course. People there loved cats! In fact, if a person’s cat died, the person would shave off their eyebrows in mourning. The only problem with ancient Egypt is that they had a lot of pyramid schemes.
