The Girl Scouts Will Soon Celebrate Their 100th Anniversary

 

 

 

 

 

Juliette Gordon Low held the first Girl Scout Troop meeting on March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia. Today, the girl Scout organization continues to grow with 3.2 million active members who are dedicated to making our world a better place.  Not many organizations have left an imprint on the lives of so many young people. I hope that they have  many more years of success. 

You Would Not! Could Not ! Want To Miss, A Celebration Such As This!

 

Thursday, March 1st @ 4:00 pm.  

We are having a party to celebrate the life and work of  Theodor Seuss Geisel, who is better known as Dr. Seuss.  

As many of you might already know, The Lorax movie will be out soon in theaters. So, we have a special treat that is based on the book for our friends.  

Books to Tickle Your Funny Bone

In my opinion, there are few things more delightful than, to hear the giggling laughter of  children.  My booklist this week is dedicated to those wonderful authors and illustrators who understand their inner child and share it with the world.

Love Comes In All Sizes

Valentine's Day is right around the corner and it is a holiday that is celebrated by people of all ages. So, I wanted to share a few items that you might enjoy reading together as a family.

I would also like to recommend, checking with your local HCPL Branch Library,  to see what activities or holiday storytime programs they may have to offer. 




 

Medical History Deep in the Heart of Texas

February is National Heart month. So, I thought that it would be fitting to highlight Dr. Denton Cooley, a man whose accomplishments in medicine are deeply rooted in Houston, but are know throughout the world.
 

Don't Forget The Booksale This Week!

The Friends of the Atascocita Library will be holding a community book sale this weekend, and 100 % of the funds from the book sales go back to the library.  

Did you know that members of FOAL have the opportunity to purchase books before anyone else in the community? There will be many great finds for both children and adults.

Not yet a member? No problem! Memberships will be available on site during the book sale, or you may pick up an application at the library. Annual memberships for FOAL cost $5.00 for individuals, 10.00 for families and $25.00 for businesses.

Valentine's Day Craft @ Storytime

This week in storytime children will have a fun holiday craft to make for Valentine's day. 

 

  • Family Storytime is held every Monday night at 7:00 pm.
  • Toddlers Tales is held on every Wednesday at 10 am and 1:30 pm.
  • Story Pals for Pre-Schoolers is held every Thursday at 10:00 am.

Siblings are always welcome and you do not need tickets to attend. Space is limited for all programs. The safety of the children we serve is our first consideration. Room capacity, as determined by the fire Marshall, as well as our desire for a high quality program experience, may necessitate limits.
 

Chilly Tales for Winter Fun

Here are a few books that you can share with your toddler to experience the frosty season of winter.  Enjoy!

 

Little Bea and The Snowy Day by  Daniel Roode.

Little Bea and her friends enjoy a day of snow angels, skating, and even making a new snow friend.

Listening to the Past

 

 

The books I have chosen for this week are about several amazing women.  Some, you may have heard of before, but my guess is  that many of the names will be new to you.

 We can be inspired by their strength and learn from their mistakes.  They lived their lives during different parts of history but each one has a story to share. Enjoy.
