Bluebonnet List Announced

 2010 - 2011 Texas Bluebonnet Award Books

This weekend, the 2010 - 2011 Texas Bluebonnet Award list was announced.  I have already requested several of the items, and you can too.  Remember, if you don't know how to place a item on hold, you can ask any library staff member for help.  We will walk you through the process, or place the hold for you.  Enjoy!

Vampires, Mummies, Werewolves...Oh My!

Monstrous tales come from around the world of creatures that dwell in mysterious sites. Hidden from the light of day...until now. Below are some of the scariest monsters in history. Dare to read what most have kept unspoken.

Warning: These books are not for the faint of heart, and are not intended for young children.

 

Not for the Faint of Heart

Happy Halloween!

During October, many older children enjoy reading scary stories. I have collected a few items that I think you will enjoy. Please be aware, that these books are not for young children.

If you have a favorite scary book I would love to hear about it.  You can leave comments below, or come visit me at the library.  I love saying hi to my friends.

Houston's Garden Hot Spots

         

The financial downfall caused everyone in America to be more cautious of how they spend money. Like many other families, I decided to stay in Houston for my vacation.
I started gardening as a child, and I still adore digging in the dirt. When looking for something to do, it was perfectly natural for me to spend time at Mercer Arboretum.  Best of all, my visit to the arboretum was FREE!

Happy Birthday to Paul Fleischman

Birthdays are a time to celebrate. Since, Paul Fleischman's birthday was this month, I thought that it would be a great time to share a few of my favorite books by this author.

Paul Fleischman was awarded the Newbery Medal for his book: Joyful Noise: Poems for Two Voices in 1989Undoubtedly, this is his most famous work. I admire this book, but it may surprise you that it is not one of my personal favorites.
