Our new YA book display feels the chill

photo of the young adult winter book displayAs Texans y'all don't really seem used to this cold weather stuff. So let a Yankee clue you into how to survive: drink lots of hot beverages (spiced cider is my favorite!), always have a few warm layers (not just mittens, be sure to have slippers or thick socks), make sure you've got something that will cut the wind (wind breakers are life savers), and find an enthralling book you can crawl under the covers with it for hours!

My winter book display is going to feature my favorite reads. So you can build a blanket fort (or just pile some on top of you), get lost in the book's pages, and forget about this chilly Texas winter.

A Special Place for Children

We would like to recognize the students and teachers at, Humble Independent School District and Primrose School of Lake Houston,  for their ongoing contributions of artwork which is displayed in the Children’s Area. These creative works help build an environment that is welcoming for those who visit the library. It is partnerships such as this that make the Atascocita Branch Library a special place for families. Thank you!

What are Your Holiday Wishes?

What are your wishes for the holidays this year? A particular gift from Santa? The safe return of family members? The healthy birth of a grandchild? A job for your husband?

We invite you to write your wish upon a star at the first floor Children's or Adult Reference desk, then help fill the sky on the round wall display area with your wonderful wish. Happy Hanukkah to our Jewish friends this weekend, and joyous anticipation to everyone else for your particular holiday celebration.

Remembering

This week we remember again the tragic events of September 11, 2001. The book display we created last year featured books documenting the assaults on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the failed assault on the Capitol Building by hijacked United Airlines Flight 93. The books didn’t check out. They had checked out the previous year but last year they didn't move. That set me to wondering if we had entered a new phase in our collective grieving.
