Come Meet our Peeps!

As #ProjectPeep continues here at the Barbara Bush Library, our duck egg hatched and joined our crew of chicks! His name is JJ Wattle and he's cute, fluffy, and just as fast as the one and only JJ Watt! 

Stop on by to see the chicks and JJ any time during our open hours. You can also view our livestreams by visiting the Harris County Public Library YouTube channel. Our peeps will be here for another week before heading back to the farm so stop on by before April 8th!

Household Items Make Fun Crafts

Liquid RainbowBrowsing the shelves in the Children's Area of the library, we came across this really cool book, How to Make a Liquid Rainbow, by Lori Shores. During STEAM CAMP this past Monday we made different rainbows out of Skittles, Lollipops, and also made the Liquid Rainbow. All of the materials needed are everyday household items that you could find in your kitchen.
