Meet the new Children's Librarian

Please come to our story times, or just visit the library to meet our new Children's Librarian, Leanne Connery.  She comes to us from Massachusetts and still has family in that neck of the woods.  She now lives in the Kingwood area.  Come meet and greet her.  Get to know her.  She is an asset to our team here at Baldwin Boettcher.  Story times are found on our events page.  Bring the children in so they may read, sing and play with Ms Leanne.  

Mystery Book Club

Mysteries lovers come enjoy the discussion of our favorite authors, books and settings.  Sometimes we even discuss our favorite way of doing away with someone.

Treats are always offered so as we discuss we enjoy a treat.  Sometimes the recipe will even be prepared from the books we have read.

January 11th at 2 pm we will be meeting again.  So come join us as we share our favorite bibliophile mysteries.  One author we thought about reading was Kate Carlisle.  There is also a series of mysteries about a book store ghost.  So search hi and low for your favorite or just needing something to read bibliophile mystery and we will discuss it during our next book club meeting.  See you there.
