Infant Story Time

We are trying a new time for the working mothers and caregivers that can not attend our baby story time during the work week.  Please try to attend our lapsit on Saturday, Jan 23rd.  It is a wonderful chance to share your babies with others and actually talk to adults while the babies play and explore the books and toys in the room.  The moms, babies and story time provider will sing, read books and have a terrific time.  So join us for a new experience or an old one that will entertain your small bundles of joy.  We will see you at 10:30 am on Saturday, Jan 23rd and every other Saturday at the same time.  See you there!

Thank you for your Patronage.

At this time the Baldwin Boettcher Staff would like to thank you for using our library services.  If you do not use the library, please come in and get a calendar of events or go on-line to check all the events that are happening at our branch.  The year has flown by and we have entertained, hopefully dazzled and given new hope to the low economy.  This next year, 2010, promises to hold even more potential for those in need of free services, programs and just some place to come hang your hat.  Remember to take advantage of our hold system.  If our library does not have it in stock, please feel free to request it from another branch.  Need something for your child or teen to participate in; feel free to come attend one of our programs.  Keep you eye out for the increase in Saturday programming for the upcoming year. 

Young Adult CD's have moved to a new shelf.

To make things easier and give everyone an opportunity to view the CD's in the Young Adult category, the staff has moved this collection to Aisle 34.  They are now placed between the Adult CD's and the juvenile CD's.  Try one.  I think  you will find it entertaining.  Some of the authors included in this collection are P C Cast (House of Night), Rick Riordan (Percy Jackson and the Olympians), L A Meyer (Bloody Jack Adventures) and John Flanagan's (Ranger's Apprentice).  You will find these stories making your to work or home and exciting adventure.  Please come explore this new collection of CD's.
