Now More Places To See Your Faces

Every Thursday from 4 pm to 6 pm in June and July you can catch some of the Baldwin Boettcher Branch Library team at your local Chick-fil-a off of I-45 North and Louetta Rd. We'll bring out a selection of books that you can check out at the restaurant, register for library cards, sign up for the Summer Reading Program as well as pick up your prizes when you complete your activities, and we'll have a craft for the kiddos. Come out and visit us! We look forward to seeing you! We'd like to give a BIG THANKS to the folks at Chick-fil-a for letting us crash their restaurant each week.
