Children's Egg Hunt

We had wonderful spring weather for an egg hunt in our pocket park after storytime earlier this week.  The children made bunny baskets and the staff hid over 200 eggs in the grass, up in trees, under bridges and behind bushes.

Happy Spring!

  Today is the official first day of Spring and the 46th anniversary of the book "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle!  While you are enjoying what we hope to be some beautiful Texas Spring like weather, please take a moment to share this classic book with your child along with the many fabulous Eric Carle books we have at the Library.  If you can't make it to the Library, access the official Eric Carle website for fun and educational stories, games and activities! Happy Spring!

Jenkins Elementary School wins once again!

Once again, Jenkins Elementary School has won the drawing on December 16th for our educational box tops.  Two brothers, Elijah (3rd grade) and Judah (1st grade) shared the 583 box tops that were collected during this time period.  The Friends of the Baldwin Boettcher Library also donated juice boxes and popcorn so the classes could have a popcorn party to celebrate their success.

If you want to help your community, this is an easy way to do it.  Just cut out the box tops you see on various products and bring them into the Baldwin Boettcher Library.  We are now taking nominations of schools to be entered in our next drawing on March 16, 2014.  The lucky school will receive all the box tops brought into the library from now until March 16th.
