Despite all the late-night festivities, patrons at the Mason City Public Library arrived bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

There may or may not have been an IPTV Board Member in attendance!

There were also a couple large spiders hanging around for all the fun!

Not to be outdone by large spiders, the Dr. Grace O. Doane Alden Public Library had a fairly large sheep.

They also had a very intense puzzle construction happening. I only accidentally ate three of the pieces.

The crowd of kids appeared to be kind, calm, and respectful.
