Children's December Storytimes

December's storytimes will be packed with stories about the holidays and your favorite holiday songs. Thursday, December 3rd we will be making Christmas ornaments during pre-school storytime at 11 AM and next week, December 9th and 10th, both toddler and preschool groups will be writing letters to the North Pole with pictures of what they would like to receive from Santa. Please bring in any junk toy catalogs you may receive in the mail or have lying around the house to use for this craft until December 10th. I look forward to seeing you all! 

Holiday Bulletin Boards

Memorial high school students, Hannah, Brittany and Kiera showcase their creative talents by designing and decorating the Holiday bulletin boards in the children's area of the Spring Branch Memorial Library. Check out the pictures in the slideshow below.

Scarecrow Ice Cream Cones

Toddlers and Preschool children enjoyed a beautiful November morning creating ice cream scarecrows following last weeks' storytimes.  Upcoming November storytimes will focus on saying "thank you" and thanksgiving". Check out the pictures from last week below.

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.
