Halloween Fun for Little Kids at Galena Park Branch Library

BooApaloozaDo you trick-or-treat when the sun is still out? My kids are daytime trick-or-treaters and I am not ashamed to admit it. Yes, my neighbors look at me funny when I knock on their door at five in the afternoon, but what else am I supposed to do? I have tried to trick-or-treat at night and it has always led to children crying. Dragging three kids from house to house for a piece of candy is not worth it, at least not for me. We have also tried to sell the, “Let’s just pass out candy this year” concept, just to end up being the ‘bad’ parents that would not let their kids trick or treat.

Yarn Pumpkin Craft

If you are looking for ways to decorate your room for the Fall, we have the perfect craft for you! Children ages 6-12 are invited to join us next Thursday, October 19 @ 4:30 pm for a Yarn Pumpkin Craft.

Find out how to use a ballon to give structure to your pumpkin and decorate it with a stem and leaves. This will be the perfect decoration for Fall, and you will be able to keep it as long as you like.

All materials will be provided, be sure to come ready to have fun. For more information, please call the branch at 832-927-5530.

Coding for Kids and Teens

If you've ever visited a website or played a game using an app on a phone or tablet, you have used something that was created using code. When someone codes, they create instructions for a computer to follow, and this makes it possible for us to play computer games, use apps, browse the web, and more. Learning to code allows someone endless opportunities, including creating their own games and even their own websites!

Alexander's bad day makes for a great book.
