Meet Your Atascocita Staff: Gloria

Name: Gloria
Title: Library Technician
Time working at branch:  An entire decade of my life

1. I’m a guru of nonfiction – travel.  Hawaii or bust!

2. On my own time, I enjoy getting out of town!  Traveling is a passion of mine.  I look forward to taking my children to Europe in the (hopefully) near future.  In the meantime, I enjoy bowling and  going to the movies.  I even own a personal Elvis themed bowling ball; however, I’m not as good at bowling as one would think.

3. One thing most people would not realize I had done was as a teen, I used to go fishing frequently.  My father and I took off on a 12 hour deep sea fishing trip the night of my high school graduation.  I was happy to bring home a celebratory  red snapper!

Coming Soon: Registration required for Tales for Tots

Due to the outstanding popularity of our Tales for Tots programs (Wednesdays & Thursdays at 10 am), we are moving to a registration format starting with the September 30 Tales for Tots.  Registration opens one week prior to the session.  Registration is weekly. 

Registration happens online through the Events Calendar.  These programs are anticipated to fill up quickly.  Space is limited. While you may bring non-participating siblings to the group, Ms. Dawn will only be preparing enough supplies for those who are registered and meet the group’s intended age (2 and 3 year olds).

The Cinder Spires: Aeronaut's Windlass

Jim Butcher is well known for his captivating series, whether with a film noir, magical detective style such as the Dresden Files or the Roman era in another time and place through the Codex Alera series. Butcher takes familiar SF tropes and tweaks those creating wonderful new adventures. He has done so again with the first in The Cinder Spires series, The Aeronaut's Windlass.
