Kimberly’s Bunny Gets a Wild Hair

Once upon a time, there was a sweet little bunny who visited the Schwob Library.  He was told emphatically by his Kimberly to stay inside his warm backpack.  When he saw the beautiful paintings by Librarian Tom (Ganzevoort) and the cool lime green chairs, the temptation was far too great.  The curious little bunny decided to experience the library for himself. 

For almost 48 hours, the little bunny ran to and fro looking at all of the great things the library has to offer.  He especially loved the Audubon magazine as he happens to be an avid bird watcher.  He thought to himself that it would be fun to read “Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk” by David Sedaris in the McNaughton Collection.  Little did he know that his Kimberly was terribly worried.  She wrote letters to both friends and strangers telling them that her little bunny was lost.  She posted flyers outside of the library which told the plight of her little friend. 

When the little bunny became very, very hungry, he made his way to the vending area at the library’s entrance.  It was there that a Cougar named Jane (she’s a CSU student) found the lost, hungry little bunny.  That afternoon, Jane became a hero, Kimberly’s heart was mended, and the sweet little bunny went home with wonderful memories of his fun library adventure.

Moral of the Story:  There’s no place like home especially if you’re a little lost bunny without your cell phone.
