Fall Gardening Program




Parents, caregivers, and children, looking for something fun to do that won't break your budget?  Please join us at Crosby Branch Library for Storytime.  Preschool Storytime, for ages 3 to 6 years, is on Tuesday at 10:30 am.  Babytime for infants and toddlers is on Thursday at 10:30 am.  This week, young children enjoyed a special Spring activity.  After listening to stories, they went outside to collect colorful eggs.  We had refreshments and goodie bags, and were entertained by seasonal music on our branch ipad.   


The Friends of Crosby Branch Library (FOL) will have their annual meeting Monday, April 8, at 6:30 pm.  At this time they will elect officers and approve by-law changes.  The public is invited.  Guest speaker Elisabeth Vestal will address the issue of Human Trafficking. 

If you are interested in becoming a FOL volunteer, this is an opportunity to learn more about the group, which helps support library activities through advocacy, fundraising, and more.


On Monday, March 18, Gudrun Opperman will present a program "Water-Smart Gardening", at 2:00 pm in the meeting room.  Ms. Opperman, a Texas Master Gardener with Harris County for 19 years, will share information regarding plants that thrive with minimal watering, as well as organic approaches to landscaping and creating edible gardens.  She may even have some free plants for audience members!  Please join us for what is bound to be an interesting and informative afternoon.                      Image © JupiterImages
