Love Your Library

Jorge Luis Borges said, "have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library."  February is Love Your Library Month.  While we don't claim to  be Paradise here at Maud Marks we love to see you come in and use our library.  You are probably aware of most of the sections in the library, but did you know that we have a Classic Book section, a Reference Book section, and a Western Book section?  We also have many programs and activities going on every month.  You can down load books for free through our ebook programs and a new program that we are offering, Hoopla, you can access music, movies, TV programs, and books on tape. We also have a newsletter that we will send to your email.  All you have to do is sign up!  It is a great way to keep up with everything that goes on here!  Be sure to come by and see us this month to feel the love.  Or check out our programs or a book or two. :)

Fishy Stuff

There is something fishy going on at Baldwin Boettcher.  It's our newest members of the Library.  We would like you to welcome Beetlejuice, Gizmo, and Bubbles.  Our new pet fish.  They were named by our wonderful patrons who gave their votes and awesome ideas on a name for each one.

They are swimming right by the front circulation desk.  So next time you come in, stop by take a look and say "hello".  Beetlejuice, Gizmo, Bubbles, and all the Baldwin Boettcher staff look forward to see you soon.

New Storytime Schedule Starting In September

 

Each week, the Atascocita Branch Library, provides seven age appropriate storytime programs for families in our community.  As many of you know, the toddler storytime sessions have become extremely popular, and this has been especially true for the morning toddler session. Therefore, starting in September, we are making a few small changes to our program schedule. We hope that these changes will be positive ones for the community, and we look forward to seeing more of our friends.

Science Fiction Book Club
