Storytimes in October

Toddler and pre-school storytime themes for the month of October may include anything icky and gooy, creepy crawlies like bugs and spiders, and (my personal favorite), not too scary, and much misunderstood, silly monsters! Please check the branch calendar for days and times.

Wanted: Teen and Young Adult Volunteers

Are you 14 or older and need community service hours for your school, want to add experience to a job or college resume or just want an creative outlet for your unique talents? If so, Spring Branch Memorial Library would love to have you for a few hours per week to help prepare crafts for storytime, create bulletin boards or shelve books. If interested please come on in and fill out a teen volunteer application.

After School activities at Spring Branch Memorial Library

Kids, ages 5 to 12, come join us the second Thursday of each month for fun after school crafts and activities. After-school programs begin on September the 10th at 4 p.m. We will be making our own magnets, perfect for hanging all those "A" papers  on the refrigerator for mom and dad to see.

Spring Branch Memorial appreciates our Teen Volunteers

Volunteers Ed Zhang and James Fan Volunteers Ed Zhang and James Fan did a fantastic job to ensure the kids had a great time at the end of summer Aloha party on August 7th.

To show appreciation for all the hard work done by the library's young adult volunteers throughout the summer a pizza party will be held on Friday, August 22 in their honor in the library's meeting room.

School Reading Lists for Summer 2009

August 24, the first day of school for Spring Branch Independent School District (SBISD) is right around the corner. Have you read any of the books from the school district's recommended reading lists?

The district's library information services puts together recommended summer reading lists for high school, middle school and elementary school students which you may borrow in the library when you visit the Spring Branch Memorial Library reference desk.

Just in case, however, you want to view or print your list from home, I have put together a list of links to the area district's summer reading lists which are online. Some of the SBISD individual schools have their own recommended reading lists online which I have included when found. 

Please feel free to e-mail or post other SBISD area current school reading lists not included below.

Children's Summer Programs at the Spring Branch Memorial Library

My first summer as the new children’s librarian at the Spring Branch Memorial Library has been a whirlwind of fun for me and I’ve enjoyed getting to know all the customers who visit the branch, especially the children. I hope the kids have enjoyed the programs as much as I have and want to remind everyone that there are still three weeks left of the Summer Reading Program (SRP) left, with exciting programs throughout the week for children of all ages. In addition to regular storytimes for infants, toddlers and preschool children to age 6 the branch will be will host special programs with activities appropriate especially for children until August 7th.  This week we will learn the beautiful art of Origami with the Japanese Culture Society of Houston on Thursday at 3 and 4 PM.
