Our much-loved library mascot turns two on Saturday! Libby the Library Dog is celebrating her big day in style, with a giant birthday party that everyone is invited to attend. The festivities will start at 2:00 pm on April 10th at the Fairmount Branch (3000 N. Fairmount St.) of the Davenport Public Library. We’ve already gotten some pretty exciting RSVPs. Here are a few of the special guests that will be wishing Libby a Happy Birthday this Saturday:
Sports fans, you don’t wanna miss this party since one of Libby’s best friends is none-other-than the world’s most famous Hawkeye, Herky the Hawk! Herky confirmed yesterday that he wouldn’t want to miss Libby’s big day. The biggest sports enthusiasts here in the Quad Cities have also RSVP’ed. Resident cheer-captain of the Quad City River Bandits baseball team, Rascal the River Bandit, and Mo Mallard of the Quad City Mallards hockey team will both be whooping it up with Libby.
Libby will get some puppy love from the biggest of all book-loving dogs out there, Clifford the Big Red Dog. And Happy the Dog from Happy Joe’s will be woofing it up, too! We sure hope that the party doesn’t go to the dogs, but Libby assures us that she and the rest of the dog pack will keep the barking to a minimum.
Other guests include Monkey Joe from Monkey Joe’s, Scrubby Bear from the American Red Cross, Charlie Corpuscle from the Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center, Bongo the Monkey from Bungle Jungle, Niabi Bobby from the Niabi Zoo, the Chik-Fil-A Cow, Wendy from Wendy’s, and Showtime Pal from Davenport Junior Theater.
Stop by the Fairmount Branch at 2:00 pm to join in the crazy celebration. Sing Happy Birthday to Libby, dance it up with Libby and her friends, and have some cake and punch. Bring your camera — you just may get a picture with one of the mascots. There will be loads of giveaways, and loads of laughs, so don’t miss out!
