A Tree Grows in the Library?!!

This summer the support pillar in the middle of the library has been turned into a tree!  If you haven't seen it, you should really come by and take a look.  The tree is decked out with vines, monkeys, and even a snake, and has been delighting children and adults as they come in.  Believe me when I tell you summer at NW Branch is WILD!

Scrapbooking 101

ScrapbookingAdult craft programs? What! Yes. Northwest Branch Library recognizes the creativity of adults. We meet the 2nd Monday of every month at 2:00 PM. This month we tackled scrapbooking. We learned about themed scrapbooking, creative use of designer paper and how to use your craft supplies to the fullest. Need more information? Check out library books on scrapbooking. See you next time!

Summer Reading is NOT Just for Kids!

The Summer Reading Program is for adults, not just teens and kids.  Sign up as an adult, read or listen to just four books, log in the titles and YOU COULD WIN bookstore gift cards and gift baskets.  That is in addition to the free book you can pick out from behind the Summer Reading Table!  So please sign up and support our library with your participation.  Who know's...you might just win a signed Janet Evanovich book!

Magazines and Newspapers!

Before you spend a fortune at the newstand, drug- or grocerystore, or pay dozens of subscription fees, come and see the large selection of periodicals at Northwest Branch Library.  We have subscriptions to over 50 magazines!  The newest issues are on display and are only available for browsing, but older issues are in bins and can be checked out by the public.  We have adult magazines, teen magazines, kid magazines, magazines in spanish and daily newspapers.  So come and enjoy!
