Slither In @ Your Library

Do you know how many types of snakes are found in the Houston area?  Do you know how many of these are poisonous snakes?  If you would like to find out and learn more about snakes and actually touch and hold some snakes, then join us this Thursday morning at 10:30 am in the meeting room of the Fairbanks Branch Library.  Mr. Clint of Texas Snakes will be here with some of his snakes to talk about snakes and snake safety.  So, slither on in!

    

Need a mini vacay?

If you're short on vacation time and cash but want to treat the family to a great experience, consider going to Abilene for the weekend of June 14. The imaginative world of Dr. Seuss is taking over downtown Abilene! The whole family can take a tour of his most famous and hidden works at the National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature and at The Center for Contempory Arts. And the kids will love dramatic presentations from eight different Dr. Seuss books throughout the weekend. Where else can they meet the characters, see the movies, and gaze at the many artworks of Theodor Seuss Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss)?
