OLE!  It's time to party at the Maud Marks Library!  We will be hosting our annual Hispanic Heritage Fiesta this Saturday, September 17 in the afternoon.  We will have dancing, food, music, a cooking demonstration, and children's crafts all afternoon until 4 PM. 

The schedule for the afternoon is as follows:

12:30 PM- A guitarist will be here to play us some Latin Tunes

1:30 PM-  The Chilean Folklife group will be back to dance their country's folk dances. 

2:30 PM- Omni Salsa will be here to give Salsa lessons.

All afternoon- The children's area will be turned into Clara's Craft Corner as we make paper flowers, tin ornaments, and pinatas.  Of course, the International Cafe opens as usual for those with the munchies. 

Wanna Be Inspired?

You may have noticed that we've had a major shift in our collection.   And... did you know that we have an area where our Inspirational fiction is shelved?  Seek and ye shall find... or ask one of us.  We would love to help you find the author you are looking for. Here are a few authors that are located in this section:

And the Runner Up is...

If you liked this year’s Gulf Coast Reads selection (One Amazing Thing) you should consider reading the runner up book, Zeitoun by Dave Eggers .  This New York Times bestselling title is also a 2010 American Book Award winner and the choice for this month's Evening Book Club discussion.

Children's Book Series

So, your kid comes come from school one day and ask you if you could check at the library for a Candy Apple book or maybe a My Weird School Daze book or maybe a My Sister the Vampire book and  they don't know the author. What do you do? Have no fear. Stop by one of the information desks and ask one of us. We updated our children's series section and it should be much easier to find those titles. Instead of being in author alphabetical order, they are in order according to the title of the series. Hopefully this will make it easier to find.
