Check Out the Moon...

The Moon

Because it will be full tonight, Thursday, June 12!  So take a moment to go outside and look for it in the southeastern sky.  Last night’s moon was high in the sky at dusk, and it had an almost delicate appearance, like fine glass.  What sort of beauty will our moon give us tonight?

As part of our Adult Summer Reading Program at Baldwin Boettcher, we will display books about the moon all summer long.  Science and astronomy, space exploration and the astronauts, folklore, photography, and maybe even a favorite book from your childhood – all will be on hand and available for check-out through August 9.

Here are a few:

Guitar Class for Adults

GuitarHave you always dreamed of playing the guitar?  Is there a guitar waiting somewhere, maybe stored under a bed or in a closet, all ready to make music as soon as you find the time to learn how to play?

We have good news.  Local guitarist Kevin Groover will teach beginning guitar to adults on four consecutive Monday evenings, beginning June 9, 6 p.m., at Baldwin Boettcher.  To register, just stop by the branch or call 281-821-1320.  This free program is for adults 18 and over, and students must bring their own guitars to class.
