Roller Derby 101

Roller Derby’s recent revival began in Austin in 2001. Since that time, derby leagues have sprouted up around the world. Visit with members of our local derby team, The Missfits, as they regale you with tales of a fast moving and hard hitting sport that could be in the Olympics in as little as ten years. You can also find out how to join the team – even if you haven’t skated since you were six. Stop by Atascocita Branch on August 2 anytime between 2 PM – 4PM to meet our local derby ladies. All ages welcome.

New Mural arrives for the Meeting Room!

Thanks to a generous donation by Richard and Joanne Jacobson, we have a new mural arriving in our meeting room.  This mural was selected by staff and approved by FOAL’s board.  Additional thanks to Mr. Chris Johnson for installing the mural so expertly!

Sneak Peek of What is on My Desk...

Have you ever wondered what the library staff is reading?  Well, here is your chance to see what I have on my desk at this very moment.  I can guarantee that you will see a few of these items at my Family Storytime.  Happy reading!

Something to Do David Lucas.

A celebration of the imagination reminiscent of Harold and the Purple Crayon.Big Bear and Little Bear want to find something to do. So they head out for a walk in the great white open —yet still, nothing. But when one of them picks up a stick, snaps it in half, and starts to draw a landscape, they realize that the only limit to what they can do is their imagination. And with these two, it turns out their imaginations are as open as the sky.Parents will welcome and children will love this funny, fresh, and adorable new book tackling the age-old misconception that there'’s simply “nothing to do.”
