The Children's Department at Freeman needs help solving a mystery. We're trying to find the missing designers of some of the shoebox floats that we recently displayed for the Mardi Gras season. The young designers attended a program we had on Monday, January 28 to design shoebox floats. We asked the designers to let us put the shoebox floats out for display through Mardi Gras (February 12) and then they could pick them up to bring home. We didn't get quite enough contact information from these young designers to reach them directly.
The parade of shoebox floats was well-received by many people - our other customers as well as staff. We enjoyed the creativity of the designers. Unfortunately, we do not have the space to hold these floats much longer. We will have to take them apart and recycle the boxes soon. If your child attended this program and hasn't picked up the shoebox float, please contact us soon to make arrangements to pick up the float by Saturday, March 9. If your child designed a float but you do not want to take it home, please call us to let us know and we'll take care of recycling the box. You can contact the Children's Department at 281-488-1906. Librarians Penny Atkinson or Holly Koile will be happy to assist you.
