What Books Do Other People Read and Like?

Have you wondered what other people like to read? Want to expand your reading to other genres? There is a new display in front of the circulation desk with the most checked out books at Stratford Library in April. In June we will display the most checked out books in May. Several of our customers have already chosen their books from this display and we are challenged to keep it supplied. We love the challenge. We also know you will find some good reads there - so check it out!        Photograph: David Levene

SNAPSHOT DAY at the Library

Be sure to come to the library Thursday, May 6 to take part in Snapshot Day. Anytime you come will be fine. We want to take snapshots of lots of activities that happen in our library. The purpose is to show people in the state of Texas the value of libraries in people's lives. Come share with us your library "stories" along with your hopes and dreams for the future of libraries. How have libraries benefited you in the past and how do they help you today? Remember... anytime Thursday, May 6!

Egghead Eggshell Planter

Next week at storytime, we will be creating an "egghead eggshell planter." With an eggshell, we will be creating a little character with grass for hair. We hope to give the little ones a chance to see how a little bit of soil, a little bit of air and water, and a few grass seeds, can bring something out of nothing. Hope you can make it!

 

Baby/Toddler Storytime: 10:30 am

Something New in the Magazine Section

We have 4 new magazine subscriptions available to check out! Kiki is a magazine for girls who love life, love to be creative and who are looking for good ideas. It is for the girl who wants to be an individual, has her own style and who is confident and strong. This magazine is really cool and wish it had been around when I was a young girl between the ages of 10 through teen years.

Popular Mechanics is back on our shelves and has up-to-the-minute know-how and ideas about automotive, technology, home and outdoors and science information.

Close to the countdown to summer...

Are your children counting down the days til school is out? While they are ready to run outside, we are busy here at the library, preparing for the 2010 Summer Reading Program.  We have had questions about our summer calendar, and be assured, they are coming soon. We have lots of fun activities planned....beginning in only 52 days...(not like we are counting or anything).

In the meantime, be sure to drop by our book sale next week!
