Classic Movie Matinee on September 2

Sometimes you just love to see a movie over and over again. New movies are great, of course, but there are times you just want the comfort and predictable outcome of a movie you are sure you love. We'll be showing one of these gems for our next Classic Movie Club selection, and we invite you to join us on Wednesday, September 2, at 2:00 PM, in the Baldwin Boettcher meeting room. This 1959 romantic comedy will put a smile in your heart, whether it’s the first or the tenth time you have seen it. For more information, call us at 281-821-1320.

La Merienda

Hispanic Heritage Month is just around the corner. To celebrate this time, Baldwin Boettcher will present "La Merienda".  Our customers will observe the custom of having sweet bread and hot chocolate.  All ages are invited to attend.  This program will be held on the 29th of September at 5 P.M.  Register at the service desk or call 281-821-1320.

Book Club Begins Reading for September Meeting

Appointment in Samarra    I’m currently on page 40 of John O’Hara’s Appointment in Samarra and finding it hard to put down. This classic novel published in 1934 lets us into the world of the country club set, in a small town in Pennsylvania during the first part of the Great Depression. I am reminded a bit of F. Scott Fitzgerald in the setting and characters, yet Mr. O’Hara is a very different (and also excellent!) writer.

Job Search Seminars

Are you one of the many looking for a job?  Unsure where to start?  Baldwin Boettcher Library is having a job search seminar.  On September 9, 2009 the Worksource Solutions will teach you how to "Use the Internet" to find a job.  Then on September 23, 2009, the Worksource Solutions will help you "Evaluate Your Skills and Develop a Plan".  They will do this by helping you determine your marketable skills, learn to effectively communicate your skills and identify your employment priorities.  In addition, this seminar will help you identify effective ways to look for a job, create a job search schedule, and develop goals for your job search.  Join us from 2 pm to 4 pm on the 9th and the 23rd of September.  Remember this is a free program.  For more information and to register call 281-821-1320.

Shhhh! Do you want to find out some juicy gossip?

I get all my juicy information from People Magazine.  Baldwin Boettcher has the latest issue of People in the Reader’s Corner. By the way, the Reader’s Corner is usually a pleasantly quiet area with tables and comfortable seating. You can read the latest copy of People at the Library and previous issues can be checked out for the two week lending period.
