"Petting zoo" of machines at California library

An anonymous patron dropped by and murmured: "Fun Story on a rather different display at the the new Martin Luther King Jr. Library in San Jose CA."

"A couple of Bobcats, a backhoe, a roller and maybe a cement mixer are joining a campaign to get books into the hands of young children. ... The massive machines are a perfect fit with this year's Book Circus theme of "Building Blocks for Growing Minds" and, organizers hope, a way to draw kids, moms and dads to the library."
