Who should attend our Infant Time?

So many story times which one to attend?  The following guidelines may help you with your choice.  We start the week with the 10 am Lapsit on Tuesdays.  Better known as the Mother Goose story time because it is presented to babies from birth to 18 months possible up to 2 yrs of age.  We encourage the mothers to hold their infants in their laps while singing and moving the babies to the songs.  Fingerplays are learned so mom and infant may interact with each other.  We also present books.  Sturdy board books.  This type of book is easy for the infant to hold and more important easy to clean or wipe off.  At the end of the storytime presentation, the infants are allowed to play with age appropriate toys while moms talk amongst each other and compare progress and work out problems they may be having with their little ones.  So bring you infant and attend the Infant time on Tuesdays at 10 am for the year round story time.  Check our

Patron Count Week

Are you looking for something to do during spring break?  The Baldwin Boettcher Branch Library needs volunteers to do patron count week.  This means you sit at a table and count the customers that enter the library.   Please contact Cindy at 281-821-1320 if you are available to help us count the customers of the library.   The week of March 14th through the 20th are the days we will need the help.  The hours we need are only the hours we are open to the public.  Please consider helping us count at the library.

Outreach Programs. What are they?

Money a problem for you?  Don't know where to get your next program for your school, day-care or senior center?  Come by or contact the library at 281-821-1320 and talk to your library staff at Baldwin Boettcher.  We will try to accommodate your outreach needs.  Ms Nancy is already visiting day care centers close to the library.  Does your local school need a puppet show, science program or some type of show to demonstrate a lesson to your class?  Does your local senior group need a musical presentation, movie, book talk or other type of program presented to them at a meeting or their main meeting area?  Please think of the library as the place to provide you this program.  So the first step would be to call or contact the library and then we will arrange for the necessary program to be presented at your location. 

Pardon our Dust!

Baldwin Boettcher has put their adult non-fiction into one collection.  This has worked out so well that we are on the move again.  This time we are putting some of the pulled out fiction collection, such as romance, science fiction, and classics, into our regular fiction collection.  They will still be stickered with the collection of romance, classics and science fiction but you will find all the MacComber books in one spot.  Your search will all be in fiction instead of Romance and fiction books.  Give us a little time or come in and see the effort that goes into moving all these books.  We hope this will make coming to the library a more pleasant experience.  Come in and enjoy one of our many programs and check us out.
