Butterflies at Baldwin Boettcher

In observance of Citizenship Month, this November all of Harris County Public Libraries along with the City of Houston are honoring our community of people working towards their citizenship.  We have a pavilion with caterpillars that are now in the chrysalis stage.  Soon they will be full blown butterflies to set free.  Come by to take a look and while you are here you can make an origami butterfly yourself to be put on display.  We look forward to seeing you soon!

Outreach Reaches In to the Library

Recently the Girl Scout Troop #11467 made a special visit to the Baldwin Boettcher Library on their world of girl's journey.  They have been studying what girls can do and learning to see their potential and true value in life.  As part of that process, they visited the residents at the Magnolia Heights Memory Center during the Christmas season.  They spent time with the troops and sang their favorite carols.  Another part of that journey was here at the library.  They had a story time with Margo our Children's Librarian and learned about amazing women in books plus made thematic crafts.  They have put together a wonderful book of their own telling the story of their journey and it is waiting to be seen by all at our circulation desk.  So if you are in the girl scouts working on a badge, make us a part of y
