Needle and Thread Club time change

The Needle and Thread Club will be starting one half-hour earlier at 1:30 to allow mom's to be able to pick up their children at school.  Bring your project to work on.  May it be crochet, knitting, cross stitch, embroidery or hand sewing to share thoughts, skills and ideas with others who like to still do craft work.

National Chocolate Month coming to a close.

National Chocolate Month is coming to a close.  The 1st week brought us 151 customers who enjoyed chocolate candy bars.  During week 2, 206 customers enjoyed Hersey's Hugs and Kisses to celebrate Valentine's day and National Chocolate Month.  This week 155 customers enjoyed brownies to celebrate their birthdays, unbirthdays and National Chocolate Month.  So join us next week to celebrate National Chocolate Month with tootsie rolls.

See you next week.  Which day?  Maybe you will have to come in every day and see us to find out.

It's Coming together or should I say apart?

Have you seen the latest?  We have completed step 3 in the new arrangement of the library.  We have a huge children's area for everyone to enjoy.  Tables and chairs are placed farther apart and we are anxious to have our first Summer Reading Program where everyone may sit and enjoy the show.  There is still more work to be done so pardon our mess and come in to enjoy our library.  If you have any suggestions, please feel free to let us know.  Look at the bulletin boards, no, they are not new just in a different place for all to enjoy.

February is National Chocolate Month

Attention all you chocolate lovers!   February is National Chocolate Month.  So watch for the special items 

that will be given out during the month.  Surprise, all of the special items will include something chocolate.

 Once a week  we will be giving out something chocolate.  Can not tell you what item or which day so that 

you will come see us often in the month of February.   

Romance is in the air!

Yes, romance is in the air!  We have moved the romance paperbacks to a new location and you are going to love it!

Now the paperback romance books are on an outside aisle.  The lighting is better and the books are easier to find.

We are in the process of pulling more of the romance paperbacks we did not have room for in this section so they will be easier to find.

Come check out the movement of our books and give us your comments.  We are always looking for ways to improve.

Bonnie and the Aldine Staff

Attention All Minecraft Players!!

Are you excited about Minecraft?  Come join us in the Aldine Computer Lab for Minecraft Club.  It will be scheduled for every Tues and Thurs evening from 5  pm until 6:30 pm.  There is a door on the lab and we are able to share our excitement at a low level with our friends and not disturb other library customers.  

Early Voting for the November Election

Are you receiving a lot of information about your local government officials in the mail?  An election is just around the corner.  On November 4th the State of Texas is electing many officials and voting on a couple of propositions.

So if you would like to beat the crowd at the polls and vote when it is convenient for you.  Come to the Baldwin Boettcher Library and use our early voting poll place.  Just come in the doors and turn right in the foyer.  You will see the voting people and their machines set up ready for you to vote. 

Facebook Photos anyone?

Do you Facebook?  Have you ever posted a picture?  Do you need to learn how?  Come to class tomorrow Friday, the 19th and our Tech Trainer will teach you the steps to posting, tagging and developing your photo albums on Facebook.  The class starts at 3 pm and all ages are welcome.

Holds at the Library!!

Does Baldwin Boettcher not have the book you are looking for?  Is this book at one of our other locations?  Did you know you may place a hold on that item using your library barcode and pin number?  Then what happens?  Everyday the libraries are searching for a list of books that need to be pulled from the shelves to fill your requests.  If the item is requested by one of our Baldwin Boettcher customers, the item stays here.  If the item is requested by a customer from another branch then the item goes to the other branch.

What's a Flash Drive?

Come to the library on September 5th and find out what a flash drive is, what it does and just how to use it.  It may also be known as a jump drive, memory stick, or a usb drive.  At 3 pm, in our meeting room we will have a computer class to tell you just how to use it.  Trying to send an attachment from your e-mail to someone else but need to make changes first?  This class will tell you all about that.
