Say Hello To Shamrock!

Almost everyday sitting at the Reference desk, I witness a little body or sometimes two making a straight beeline to the big stuffed horse we have in the Barbara Bush Branch Library Children’s Area shouting his name “Maaaaack!!” with pure delight on their faces. Well now to add to that joy, we are very delighted to announce that Mack has been joined by a friend and yes it’s another horse! His name is Shamrock and he is, unlike Mack, gray in color. He has come to us as a very kind donation by Wells Fargo, the Cypresswood branch, made possible for us by Mr. Samuel Edwards, the VP there. We are very grateful to them.

 

Board Game, Anyone?

Xbox 360, Wii, PS4… know any of these games? Of course you do!!! In this age of technology, almost all the kids play video games or computer games and I bet they are pretty cool but what about games which don’t have or need a screen or a mouse or a remote control or even electricity? I am sure you know what I am getting at, eh? Yes I am talking about the board games such as Monopoly, Scrabble, Checkers, Battleship and so many more.

We have all those games and more here at Barbara Bush Branch Library. Come and join us on Tuesday,  January 28th (or any fourth Tuesday of the month) @ 4:30 pm to have fun with one or more of these games. Bring a friend or two with you and show off your gaming skills. Happy gaming!
 

Cool Crafts For Cool Weather

 

What do you think of the weather? Cold, huh? Yes! That’s right. So what do you do in the afternoons when you come home from school during these cold days? Well, if you are stuck with nothing fun to do, come to the Barbara Bush Branch Library on Tuesday, January 21st 2014 to make some fun winter crafts. The program will be at 4:30 pm in the Robin Bush Activity Room. I hope to see you then.

Beep Beep..... Reminder!

Hey everyone, I bet you guys saved the date but still I thought I’d go ahead and personally remind you all about the free play for all ages which is this Saturday, January 11 2014 at 10 AM. The play is based on the book Tomas and the Library Lady by Pat Mora and will be held at The Centrum, across from the library. I hope all of you can make it. It shall be uber fun.

Let's See a Play Together!

Who doesn’t enjoy a good play? And if that play is meant for all ages, even better! Right? What if I add that it’s free, would you say awesome? I figured you would. So if you love to see a great play that is also free, we have a wonderful program coming up. Join us for a play performance by Theatre for Everyone: Brave Little Company based on the book Tomás and the Library Lady by Pat Mora.

Family That Reads Together!

 

Isn’t it wonderful when mommies and daddies come home from work? We love to see them.We love to do different things with them, right? One such thing is to read books together. Keeping that in mind, we at Barbara Bush Branch library have a Storytime at night. Come and join us every Monday night at 7 PM in the Robin Bush Activity Room for wonderful stories, songs and craft. It’s the best thing to do before going to bed!

So You Think Story Time is Not For You?

“Storytime? But that is for little kids, right? I am a big kid and I go to school. I can’t go to storytimes!” Have you ever had those thoughts? Once? Well, if you have or even if you haven’t, let me tell you that listening to stories is fun for all ages. (Pssst! I’ll even let you in on a secret. Even adults like that. That’s correct!)

Let The Celebration Begin!

Are you ready for the winter break? Are you ready for some creative fun as well? If you say yes then I have a perfect thing for you.

Join us at Barbara Bush Branch Library on December 17th @ 4:30 PM in the Robin Bush Activity Room. We will make some Holiday and seasonal crafts and mark the start of all the festivities. See you then!
