Children's Early Literacy Program

Saturday, May 15th @ 1:30 PM
In partnership with the Children’s Museum of Houston we are proud to present Para Los Niños. Come join the fun as we share books and activities that encourage early literacy skills. This program will focus on family communication and is presented in English.

Poetry of America

Last month was National Poetry Month, so why am I writing this blog in May?  If you had a chance to visit the Atascocita Branch you may have noticed my display of poetry books in the children's area. I am happy to report that many children and adults checked these items out. Even though April is over and gone, I am hopeful that you will continue to explore books in this area of the library.

Monday, May 31st, our country will celebrate Memorial Day. This national holiday commemorates the U.S. soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines who died while in military service.  I have chosen books about America in honor of these brave men and women.

Math Storytime

Children's books provide a fun and interesting way to reinforce basic concepts. In this week's Family Storytime (Atascocita Branch) we had fun with math.  I realized that the statement, "fun with math," may seem like an oxymoron to those of you who do not like math. However, it has been my experience, that children actually enjoy math when they experience it in a fun and relaxing atmosphere.

All Ages Welcome @ Family Storytime

Children of all ages are invited to attend Family Storytime.
