Bluebonnet Book Award Voting!

We will be having a special day for voting at Stratford Library, voting for the Bluebonnet Book Award.  Who is eligible? All homeschool 3rd -6th graders as well as any 3rd-6th graders whose schools may not participate in voting. On Wednesday, January 23rd, at 2:30, they are welcome to come and cast their ballot for their favorite book off of the Texas Bluebonnet Nominees list, found here.

The motto is "Read Five, and then Decide." So please encourage your child to read five books off of the list and then to choose their favorite. So encourage your child to read more through the months of November and December and read five books off of the list.

Halloween at Stratford Library was a Success!

Halloween at the library this year was a success! Thank you to all who helped and/or donated of your time and resources. With 60+ children coming through, we had a full house and saw lots of great costumes. Almost the full cast of Mario was present, along with Fancy Nancy, some superheroes, a couple of ninjas and much more. For more photos, please click here.  If you would like to help out with future programs at the library, please stop by and fill out a volunteer application.

Valentine's Day & Black History Month at Stratford!

Join us on Monday, February 13th at 4pm for a fun tween program that combines Black History Month and Valentine's Day. Tweens can make Valentine's Day cards and sample some pink peanut butter pie in honor of George Washington Carver who pioneered many new uses for peanuts. Tweens can hang out, make cards, learn about Carver and eat pie.

Hope to see you there!

Calling All Mothers

This week's storytime is, of course, dedicated to mothers everywhere. Please bring your toddlers this Thursday at 10:40 am for some special stories of mothers and their children, followed by a simple craft.

Happy Birthday to the Very Hungry Caterpillar!

Thank you to everyone who came for storytime during spring break this week! It was great to see you all and celebrate St. Patrick's Day with you.  Next week, we will be reading a story or two by Eric Carle, since March 20th will be the 42nd anniversary of the publishing of the Very Hungry Caterpillar.  Eric Carle's pictures are made by collage using painted paper, which is what accounts for the saturated colors you see. You can read about it here. His main website can be found here. Hope you will join us!  Baby time 10:15, Toddler time 10:40 on Thursday.

St. Patrick's Day!

Next week at Toddler Story Time, we will be celebrating St. Patrick's Day. Feel free to wear green, and we will make some "shamrock shakes." We'll play St. Patrick's Day hot potato and Lucky Leprechaun says.  See you there!
