Friends of the Bear Creek Library Meeting

Did you enjoy a library program or activity?  All of our programs are possible because of the support of the Friends of the Bear Creek Area Public Library.  They are community members—just like you!—dedicated to supporting our library through fundraising and advocacy.  The Friends are always looking for more enthusiastic members, so please join them at their next planning meeting!

October session of WeDo Robotics!

We still have a few spots open for our fall session of WeDo Robotics! This program is for children ages 8- 12 years old and will be held on Monday, October 3rd; Tuesday October 4th; and Wednesday October 5th from 4:00 – 5:00 PM at the Katherine Tyra @ Bear Creek Branch Library. Participants must be able to attend all three sessions.

This is a free program, but registration is required; the program is open to the first 10 applicants. Registration forms are available at the Service Desk. A wait list will be kept for those who still wish to sign up after the first 10.

This project is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services and Texas State Library and Archives Commission (2016).
