“You’ve been so socially distant lately. I think we may be growing apart.”
“Can you move over a few more feet?”
“Ok class, smile for the camera. Say, toilet paper.”
…but I’m not even social.
“I’m looking for a tail of romance.”
“Look somewhere else, my tail is a tale of tragedy if you don’t get lost!”
“Welcome to the first Nap Club of the new year. Now remember, the first rule of Nap Club is no one talks about Nap Club. Let’s make this a good, clean nap.”
“I hope your New Year’s resolution was to return your library books on time because overdue library books are no way to start out the year.”
“Miss Dove, what’s your New Year’s resolution?”
“To take more naps and read more books!”
Happy New Year from the Bird Library!
The Bird Library hopes you are having a wonderful holiday with all your Doved Ones.
“OOOO guys! Are they playing Mariah Carey? This is my favorite Christmas song. ‘All I want for Christmas is yoooooou.”
“We’ve been waiting in this line for hours, how many books are you asking for, Miss Dove?”
“All of them.”
“Santa, being a Mourning Dove is so depressing. I wish I could be a Turtledove for Christmas, at least I’d have a song, and not that Prince one about crying.”
Yawn! “You guys go ahead and Black Friday shop, I’ll stay here and nap.”
“I got into this job to help birds discover the love of reading, but all they ever ask me is ‘Which way is South?”
“Am I doing this right? I’m sitting on the chair. It feels wrong. Is there an instruction manual for this thing?”
The Bird Library, now with piggyback rides!
Extreme napping – expert level: Miss Dove
“Oh! When you said ‘Put them in the book drop,’ this wasn’t what you meant?”
“Welcome to library yoga. Today we will focus on our inner bird. This is Dove pose. If this is too difficult just take a break, eat some bird seed, and breathe. Namaste.”
“Ok kids, gather round, today we are having scary story time.”
“Oooo, I hope it’s a really scary one.”
“Today’s story is called The Cat in the Hat!”
“Ahhh! That’s too scary!”
Miss Dove enjoys reading books from many different genres. She is well-rounded.
