Tomball

Name the Children's Department Bear!

The Children's Department recently received a new bear courtesy of the Friends of the Tomball Library.  The new bear takes the place of our long time friend Cody Bear, who has retired to Florida after 11 years of service and friendship to thousands of children.  As much as we love our new bear, we have a problem.  We can't decide on a name!  We've narrowed it down to our 4 favorites:  Basel, Bubsy, Freddy and Theodore  and we'd like the children to help us make the final decision.  Starting on Tuesday, January 17th through Friday, January 27th the children can fill out a "name the bear" ballot located on the children's reference desk (in front of the new bear) for their favorite choice. The bears name will be announced on Monday, January 30th. Thanks for helping us!
