A taste of Brazil

If I cannot vacation in an exotic country the best next thing is to taste some exotic food. Monday, July 19, 2010 at 6:00 pm at the Baldwin Boettcher Library I’ll have a chance to taste some delicious Brazilian food while listening to samba music. How about joining me? You can register online or call 281-821-1320. As usual this is a free program, come and join the fun!

Spotted on the New Book Shelf

One perk of working in a library would have to be seeing the new books arrive in delivery each week, and I sometimes feel like a child at Christmas when I open these red tubs of new materials to be checked in.

Mystery Book Club sees Red, White and Blue

For our July Mystery Club we will be discussing mysteries with the red, white and blue theme.  This could be better known as the "patriotic theme".  As you know we are not too strict on our interpretation of what you need to read.  This book club is all about getting together, making friends and discussing why we like or do not like a book we have read.  Others in the club give us ideas of the books they liked and maybe we would like to read them also.  So come join us on July 21st at 2 pm.  This way you will be able to help us decide the theme for August.

Cows at the library?

The cows has re-scheduled her visit to the library.  The farmer was not able to present our first program to happen as scheduled so we invited the cows back for another visit.

Come see our favorite cow from SW Dairy on July 20, 2010.  At 11 am we will be looking for Little Boy Blue and our cows in the meadow.  Let us hope everyone is not fast asleep under the haystack.  So come see the cow and learn how we get milk to send to the dairy.  Do you think this is where the chocolate milk comes from?  The farmer will tell us all about it.  This may be as close as you can get to a cow.  Bring your summer reading slips and complete your first steps in the reading program.  See you here at the Baldwin Boettcher Library.
