We wanted something special to give away in a drawing during our Grand Re-opening on Friday, July 14, 2017; 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

We wrote to Mr. William Kent Krueger and asked him if he would mind autographing a book for us for the occasion.  We offered to purchase/send him a book, but he generously told us, “No,” that he was happy to contribute to the cause.

When the package arrived, I was so excited I dropped it! So, the Dragons said, “here, let US do it!”

YAYYYYY!!!  Aren’t these fantastic?  THANK YOU, KENT!!!
I would like to say that the Dragons were really excited about the wonderful books (I know I was) but then they discovered something that, for Library Dragons, was a bit more entertaining. . .

There are so many cool things going on at the Adrian Branch Library right now!  I have never seen a circulation desk/work desk like the one in the Library.  In fact, I feel as if I am sort of on the Starship Enterprise – I can control the LIGHTS from the DESK (The Bridge)! 

I told the Dragons how I felt, and they wanted to play “Star Trek.”  

 They took their places on the The Bridge:

In their imagination, however, this is what they saw:
Libraries are great for the imagination!

(A special thank you to Marshall Stanton for making this tableaux possible.)

WHERE IN THE LIBRARY?! June 16, 2017

Where in the Library are the Dragons?  The shelves are IN!  The electrical and plumbing is almost completed!  Inspectors will be visiting, and then the staff will start carting in the books!

And so, of course, our curious Dragons sneaked (or “snuck” if you prefer) in and had some fun playing around the awesome new stuff!

The Library ROCKS!  Remember, the Grand Re-opening will be on Friday, July 14, 2017, from 11:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.  There will be a Rims & Ribs event (yum!) in Adrian that night, beginning at 5:00 p.m.  Why not check out the Library, then head over for a great meal?!
