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. :) 

Keep on reading through the Holidays


Encouraging a love for reading is one of the best gifts you can give your child. 

To help them keep their minds sharp during the winter break, sneak reading into their daily activities.  Here are a few fun tips from Baldwin Boettcher Library:

There's Still Time!

The Summer Reading Program is fast drawing to a close. The program officially ends on Saturday, August 9th. Everyone be sure to turn in those reading logs as soon as possible. Kids, there's still time to get your free book and certificate of completion awarded after reading 10 books or 500 minutes. Teens, get  your ear buds after reading 5 books or 600 minutes. Adults, don't miss out on your coffee mug awarded after reading 5 books or 600 minutes. 

Summer Fun for Everyone @ Aldine

  is just around the corner; it's time once again for the Summer Reading Program! It all kicks off on Monday, June 2nd. There are four reading programs and a bunch of fun activities for kids and teens.
