Bluebonnet books in high demand

 

The Bluebonnet Books are read by most elementary school children in Texas.  West University has multiple copies of each nominated title, which are shelved on the small bookcase at the top of the stairs.  Now that school has started, the demand is great and it may seem there are no books available.  When the books are returned  they are placed on a bookcart by the checkin counter.  Check that cart first before heading upstairs.  If no titles are available, they can be requested from other libraries to ensure your student has an opportunity to read the books he/she wants.

Summer Reading Program Winner at WU

SRP winner

Yolanda Athaide is the winner of a $50 gift certificate from Amazon.  She succesfully completed ReaderNation, and her name was chosen from all the participants at West University Library.  This is the second year that Yolande has participated in the Adult SRP, along with her two children. She describes herself as a having been a big reader since she was a child, and her parents always said that she could never set a book down. These days she mainly reads children's books, so that she stays one step ahead of her children. Recently she enjoyed reading the young adult novel, The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate, by Jacqueline Kelly.
Yolande plans on using her gift card to purchase a world history book for her family.

Magic Behind the Magic

Everybody has seen a magic show, but seldom do you get the chance to see a magician reveal the secrets to his tricks.  Children had the opportunity to see how Mr. Immega works his magic, and even had the opportunity to try out some sleight of hand techniques!
