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.

Tall Tale Cinema with a twist

Time for Tall Tale Cinema but with a twist.  February is Black History Month.  So for February we will be showing a short film about  John Henry.  After the film we will explore some Jazz books and listen to some music.  Come enjoy the smooth jazz and learn about some famous jazz players.

Cooking for Teens

Looking for something to do on your Saturday off!  Bored, need something to eat?  Come to the Teen Cooking Program with Ms Susan.  Learn the tips, recipe and create your individual Pineapple Up-side Down Cake in honor of Black History Month.  Space is limited so it will be a ticketed program.  Pick up your ticket one-half hour before the cooking begins at 2 pm on February 13th.

A Taste of Africa

Chef Dee Ekemonde will present a sampling of traditional dishces from the continent of Africa at this culinary program.  You may pre-register at the library or online at www.hcpl.net.   The program will begin at 6 pm on February 22, 2010.  See you there!

Romance is in the air!

Valentines is one of my favorite holidays.  No time off but lots of romance, love and special gifts.  Keep watch for all the wonderfully exciting programming the library will present during this month.  Make sure you look at the events calendar for Baldwin Boettcher to see if you need to register for the program, if it is a ticketed program or if showing up will work.  All the events will note if you must register or if it is ticketed.  If in doubt, call us at 281-821-1320 and we will help you with this information or get you signed up for the program.  Looking forward to seeing you in the library no matter what age as we have programming for babies to adults.

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!

The Mystery Continues

The new year will find us in Paris, France.  We will be looking at the book, Death du Jour by Lou Jane Temple.  The setting is in Paris and this book is part of the Spice Box Mystery series.  So if you like mysteries and historical fiction, please join us for our trip to 18th century Paris.  The book club will be meeting on January 20th at 2 pm.  Come enjoy a lively discussion and a crepe a la martine.

Gluten-Free Diet Program

Do you need more information about a gluten-free diet?  Would you like to taste test some recipes made special for the gluten-free diet?  Find out about some support groups that are available out there for those who suffer from the Celiac Disease.  January 26th at 5 pm, the Baldwin Boettcher Library will present a Gluten-Free Diet program which will offer some recipes for those who like to entertain. Come share your experiences with us.

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.
