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.

 

Mystery Book Club

Mysteries are on the rise.  The Who Done Its are growing in popularity.  On December 21, 2011, the Baldwin Boettcher Mystery Book Club will be once again discovering Culinary Mysteries.  Come join us for a lively discussion and bring your own favorites on this topic.  See you at 2 pm on December 21st.

Mystsery Book Club

Come one, come all.  The Mystery Book Club is back!! We had a great first meeting since our hiatus.  We talked about one of our favorite authors who passed away this year.  There will be no more "The Cat Who..." books by Lillian Jackson Braun.  Her books will be missed.  They were a fun read.  However, we moved on and decided that this next month we would concentrate on "unusual occupations".  One of the group said there are books out there about a pet sitter.  One pet is even an iguana.  So see if you are able to produce a book with a more unusual occupation than that.

We will discuss the occupations, and eat a light snack.  Come join in the fun and lively discussion.  See you on October 19th at 2 pm.

Mystery Book Club

I would like to take this opportunity to invite everyone to attend our Mystery Book Club.  We took a short break over the summer but now it's time to dig back into the mysteries we all enjoy.  I thought we might find a mystery that is written in our favorite state.  This gives us lots of choices and may bring a new and exciting author to the discussion.  Wednesday will continue to be our meeting day and the time will still be 2 pm.  So grab your books and come join us for our Mystery Book club discussion.  See you there.  Anyone is welcome to attend.

Summer Reading Just Around the Corner

Summer Reading is just around the corner.  Summer Reading flyers are not available yet due to a mishap at the printers.  However, the staff at Baldwin Boettcher invites you to visit our website and view our events page.  Programming for children starts June 6th.  Ticketing is still required for our children's programming.  Tickets are free.  Please arrive one-half hour early to ask for your ticket.  Remember the fire marshall has limited our seating capacity to 60 people.  This means that children attending the program should be able to sit by themselves to pariticpate in the program.  Some of our programs have seating limited even lower than 60 so please make sure that you find out how to sign up for these. 

Mystery Book Club takes a break!

The Baldwin Boettcher Mystery Book Club will take a break for the Summer.  As we are getting ready for the children to come into the library for the summer, our reduction in staff and limited budget means we need more time to get things done.  Bonnie will be helping with the Summer Reading Program and needs a little time to devote to creating some of this programming.  We will resume again in September when the children are back in school. 

Just bring a favorite author that you discovered over the summer or have always liked.  We will discuss what topic we want for October and have a little snack.  It is always good to have a little food with our discussion.  So take a little break, explore some new authors or revisit your friends and we will see you on September 21st at 2 pm.
