Trick or Treat Fun

Wear your costumes to storytimes next week.

Support library programs for children with your grocery loyalty cards.

Did you know you can support children's programs just by linking your grocery store loyalty card to the Friends of the Spring Branch Memorial Library (FSBML)? In addition to paying for most of the summer children's programs, the FSBML provides funds to purchase craft supplies, furniture, computers, books and more for the Spring Branch Memorial Library.

You may link your Randall's Remarkable Card by giving the check-out person the code 2194  the next time you use your Remarkable Card.

To link to your Krogers Plus Card you must present a card, which you can pick up at the library circulation desk on your next visit, to the cashier. All future purchases using your loyalty cards will generate contributions which will be credited to the FSBML.

Slightly Scary, Slightly Silly After School Storytime

Please join us after school on Thursday, October 8th (from 4-5) in the meeting room as we get celebrate the month of October with snacks, some slightly scary, slightly silly stories and a Halloween craft. Recommended for grades K-5, but everyone is welcome as long as space permits.

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.
