Animals that dig

       Animals that dig were the featured guests at the Library this week.  The Traveling Naturalist brought reptiles and mammals who like to burrow.  96 children and 50 adults attended the program which featured a snake, turtle, hedgehog, bunny tarantula and toad.  Afterwards, children lined up to pet the turtle and lion-headed rabbit.

Next week we will have crafts on Tuesday at 3 PM and Origami on Wednesday at 3 PM.

Magic at the West U Library

Our summer programs started off with an exciting magic show featuring local magician, Steve Burton.  The audience was amazed by the fabulous "How'd he do that?"  tricks. We were fortunate to have the program at the newly renovated senior center next door to the Library.  Their auditorium accomodates large crowds.

All Library  programs are free and are listed on the West U Library website.  Calendars are also available at the Library.

Visit the Library website at www.hcpl.net to sign up for the summer reading program.  Children who read [or have read to them] 10 picture books - or read on their own for 5 hours or 500 minutes - will receive a free paperback book, a certificate and a food coupon from a local restaurant.

Meet the artists of Lone Star Lyric, get a sneak preview of the 2011 season and find out how the Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales come to life in a special event called, Page to Stage. Lone Star Lyric celebrates Season 5 with a festival of brand new operas and musicals called, Simply Grimm.
