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!

Where Have All The Bluebonnets Gone?

Each year, local schools encourage students to read the Bluebonnet Award Books, and Harris County Public Library system orders additional copies to meet the demands.  That being said, I often notice that our Bluebonnet display is completely empty. So what is a kid to do?      

Halloween Party for Kids

 

  

 Wild Thing Party

 Join our Halloween After School Special on Tuesday, November 27th @ 4:00 pm.   

Celebrate Halloween with Cookie Decorating

 Don't miss your chance to take part in this fun celebration.  This program is popular so it will require tickets.  You can pick up a free ticket for the program 30 minutes before the program. Space is limited.  Children may wear their Halloween attire if they would like.

Twilight Tales Halloween Craft

Children made Halloween paperweights this evening during Twilight Tales. This program is held every Monday night at 7pm.  It has been developed as a family storytime program for children of all ages.  Typically, a craft is also provided.

 

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.
