ROCHELLE — Tuesday afternoon, “Illinois Juan” returned from a ‘quick jaunt to Africa’ to visit the Flagg-Rochelle Public Library’s summer reading program students and tell tales of his adventurous journey.

While on safari, Illinois Juan met a friendly giraffe that decided to visit the Library with him. Juan and his sidekick, Samurai the cat, also toured Egypt and saw mummies on display. The program children also made their own paper mummies in groups.
