Red Bat's Journal
Launched in Duxbury, MA in November, 2008
Here I am in the Duxbury Public Library. The book Bats at the Library started after a librarian told Brian Lies about how a bat got into THIS library! It seems that staff arrived one Saturday morning to find a cousin of mine swooping around the Children’s Room. The librarian and the custodian trapped the bat in a blanket and let it out of a window. Here I am with the actual blanket used to save my cousin! Weren’t they nice to do that?
I wonder what my cousin was reading?

Lookit! Now I’m in Brunswick, Maine, at the Curtis Library. That’s me with Rose D., who is reading Bats at the Library to me while I sit on Griffin, a new papier mache friend. They had a foot and a half of snow last night, so it’s great to be indoors, where I can warm up and read!

Second Stop in my travels:
Here I am in Ithaca, NY. It’s the home of Cornell University, right at the tip of one of the Finger Lakes! In the photo, I’m resting next to the little door into the “Reading Zoo,” a beautifully-painted room right outside their storytime room. It was fun to wave goodby to the preschool children after they read Bats at the Library! I don’t think the date is right on that camera. . .

I’ve just had a wonderful time in Delhi, NY, at the Cannon Public Library! I’ll tell you about it soon!
