Pete the Cat Visits the Library!

15 Aug

A few months ago, Pete the Cat visited my library. Of course, I decided to document his visit, as he’s such a celebrity around here. I think he had fun, but you be the judge.

He started by checking out the picture book collection. of course, his story was checked out:

He did find another book about cats he thought he’d like to read, though (the lovely blue cover caught his eye): Vivianne Schwarz’s There Are No Cats In This Book.

No cats IN the book, but one cat ON it! Ba-dum-dum!

 

He went to check it out but had a little trouble with the self-check; luckily a friendly staff person was ready to help:

No, Pete, I don't think that's where the RFID tag is.

Next, he went to try out the internet. Those cordless mice are tricky!

Especially when you don't have clicking fingers

Needless to say, he went right to his favorite website:

It's PetetheCat.com!

He also checked out StoryBlocks, and learned a few new songs:

It was time for me to head off to a preschool for storytime, so Pete decided he wanted to go along and be the special guest star:

Pete ALWAYS wears his seat belt

Here he’s relaxing in the book bag, waiting for his surprise appearance!

When he got back to the library he was a bit hungry, so he checked out what was in the vending machine (sadly, no goldfish crackers, but there was a can of tuna salad):

Luckily, someone had left a bag of chocolate truffles unattended:

After renewing his strength with a snack, he ran into a few friends:

Frog and Toad:

(Pete can't remember which one's Frog and which one's Toad)

Tacky the Penguin:

Lookin' good there, Tacky!

And Splat the Cat:

And he made some new friends!:

Pete phone home?

He did a little more exploring around the work rooms of the library, and was almost shipped to another branch when he fell into a delivery tub! Better be more careful, Pete!:

What a busy day! Pete had such fun at the library, but it was time to head home. But not before one last look at the books!

Err...one last pose on the books?

Thanks for stopping by, Pete! We enjoyed having you! You were rockin’ (in your school shoes)!
