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

Spring Is In the Air

Yes Spring is finally here. Visit the Baldwin Boettcher Library and fill our "communitree" with a butterfly to celebrate the season.  Just come by the circulation desk at the front of the library and make a donation.  A butterfly with your name and/or words of choice will be placed upon the tree for all to see. Just like our wonderful patrons, donations are always welcome no matter what the season.  So we look forward to seeing you soon.  Don't forget to stop by the front desk and see our "communitree".

Starting March 8th at 2 pm, the Baldwin Boettcher Library will be presenting the DIA Family Book Club.

This program will consist of 6 story times presented twice monthly.   DIA stands for Diversity in Action.
This program will help the children with reading comprehension, understanding that different is not bad and educate the parents on how to help their children read for better understanding.
The Grant has been sponsored by ALA (American Library Association) and the Dollar General Stores.  We have two of the Dollar General Stores in our area.
The $2000 grant will be spent mostly (over $1900) on books to add to our collection and yours.  Please attend the March 8th program at 2 pm to learn how you and your family may benefit from this opportunity.
