Baldwin Boettcher Mystery Book Club

According to the website Cozy-Mystery.com, most of the cozy mysteries that they read take place in a small, picturesque town or village, with characters who I could envision having as neighbors or friends.  I think this will apply nicely to the topic for our May Mystery Book Club.  Come join us on May 23rd at 2 pm for a discussion of the cozy mysteries you have read for the month.  

New Staff Member at Baldwin Boettcher

Please come visit the newest member of the Baldwin Boettcher Library.  He will be arriving sometime tomorrow, Friday the 13th.  We have his new home all set up and hope you will all welcome him to our library.

Once he arrives we will be voting on a name for him, so come into the library and learn how you may participate in the Name the Bunny Contest.  I will be posting a picture tomorrow.

Hope to see you this weekend so you may meet the library bunny.

Need Your Taxes Filed

Are you still needing your taxes filed?  AARP is at the Baldwin Boettcher Library doing taxes.  Did you know you do not have to be a member of AARP for them to help you.  Did you know you do not have to be a certain age for them to help you?  They will not do business taxes but they will help you with your personal filing if you bring all social security cards for the people on your return, 2010 Tax Return and all 2011 tax documents.  

When are they here?  Mondays 1 pm - 6 pm, Wednesday 12 noon to 5 pm, Friday 1 pm - 5 pm and Saturdays 12 noon until 4 pm.  It is on a first come first serve basis and you may wait a little while on some days but remember it is FREE!!

Story of the Underground Railroad

Have you heard the story of the Underground Railroad told with quilts?  Come join us at the Baldwin Boettcher Branch Library for the story of the Underground Railroad.  Explore this subject for Black History Month.  There will be a little food sampling while we explore the beautiful quilt blocks used to demonstrate how the slaves knew where to go and what to do once they escaped.  February 20th at 6 pm.  Once the demonstration is over, paper quilting (paper and scissor) will result in the creation of your own ten inch block with no sewing talents needed.  Create a block of beauty all by yourself.

February Mystery Book Club

Mystery Book Club will be meeting February 22nd at 2 pm.  We will be reading books authored by Margaret Truman.  What better way to spend President's Day than talking about mysteries that have occurred in Washington D.C.   So read your favorite Truman book or pick one up for the first time.  Come join our lively discussion of Margaret Truman's mysteries.

Teens wanted!!

Teens are you feeling let out at the Baldwin Boettcher Library.  Great news!  Leanne Connery has been added to the staff as not only the children's librarian but as the Teen Coordinator also.  If you have any ideas about what type of programming you'd like to see come talk to Ms Leanne.  Also, chess club and game day would like to begin again, so come talk to Ms Leanne about when this programming would benefit you the most.  Also would you like to serve on the Teen Advisory Board (TAB)?  Come talk to Ms Leanne.

Meet the new Children's Librarian

Please come to our story times, or just visit the library to meet our new Children's Librarian, Leanne Connery.  She comes to us from Massachusetts and still has family in that neck of the woods.  She now lives in the Kingwood area.  Come meet and greet her.  Get to know her.  She is an asset to our team here at Baldwin Boettcher.  Story times are found on our events page.  Bring the children in so they may read, sing and play with Ms Leanne.  

Mystery Book Club

Mysteries lovers come enjoy the discussion of our favorite authors, books and settings.  Sometimes we even discuss our favorite way of doing away with someone.

Treats are always offered so as we discuss we enjoy a treat.  Sometimes the recipe will even be prepared from the books we have read.

January 11th at 2 pm we will be meeting again.  So come join us as we share our favorite bibliophile mysteries.  One author we thought about reading was Kate Carlisle.  There is also a series of mysteries about a book store ghost.  So search hi and low for your favorite or just needing something to read bibliophile mystery and we will discuss it during our next book club meeting.  See you there.

Something exciting is happening at our Library!

On December 20th, Baldwin Boettcher Library will introduce our new Children's Librarian to our Lapsit and Preschool Storytime participants.  If you have the time, please stop in and give a warm welcome to our new staff member and say "Hello".    More information will be forthcoming and even a picture once she has started at our branch.
