Color Your World


flower

Adults, do you like to color? Has it been a while since you sat down with a coloring book? Join us at the Aldine Library on Wednesday of each week at 2 PM for Color Your World. Why color? It can help you relax. Also, coloring reduces stress and boosts mental clarity. Come join us. Feel calmer and happier each week as we color. 

Coloring for Adults is Back!

After our last Adult Coloring meeting our participants didn't ask us, "Are you having another class;" they asked us,"When are you having another class?!" We can now answer that question: we're having one at the end of this month. 

If you haven't been before, come and discover the joy of adult coloring in a two hour coloring fest at the Tomball Library. If you have been before, here's the spoiler: we'll have pages from "The Official A Game of Thrones Coloring Book". Relax and get lost in this meditative activity. We'll supply felt markers, coloring pencils, and pages to color; but feel free to bring your own as well. That's Thursday, March 31st, from 2-4 pm. In the Meeting Room, Room L-129.

Northwest Branch Library is looking for tutors. If you are interested in teaching we are having a Ready Literacy Overview Training session on February 23, 2016 from 10:00-12:30 PM in the meeting room. Come and learn how to help others.

Toys For Tots

It's not too late!  But almost!  We will still be taking donations for Toys For Tots until tomorrow, Thursday, December 17.  There is a box by the children's librarian's desk as you come into the library.  Any unwrapped new toy is acceptable.  Gifts for children ages eight to ten and teens are usually needed most but toys for any age is appreciated.   Hurry to the store today or tomorrow and pick up something to make a boy or girl's Christmas a little brighter!  Bring it by Maud Marks before we close tomorrow at 6 pm.   Thanks you so much for your wonderful giving spirit this season and always.  Our patrons are the best!!

Yum Yum!

Did you know that October is National Cookie Month?  Now would be a great time to fire up the oven, dig out your favorite recipe and bake up some cookies for yourself or a friend!  There are so many yummy cookies.  What is your favorite?  Chocolate Chip? Snicker doodles? Whoopi Pies? Rice Krispy Squares? There are too many to list.  They are the perfect snack.  (as long as you don't eat the whole batch at once!!)Here are a few cookie facts.  Did you know that cookie cutters date back to the 1700's and were brought to America by the Germans and Dutch?  The Chocolate Chip cookie is the official state cookie of both Massachusetts and Pennsylvania. I wonder if they hand out free cookies at the border?  America spends over $550 million a year on Oreos!  So have a cookie! Or two or three this month to celebrate! I know I will. And be sure to come into the library and check out our large cook book section.  We have some great cook books with wonderful recipes to help you create some new cookies to add to your collection or to spruce up an old favorite.  And by the way, October is also National Pizza month!  But that is a whole other blog.
