Teens: Can You Survive the Haunted Library:Carnival of Souls?

Step up one and all and join us after the library closes for the most peculiar carnival that you will ever attend. On Saturday, October 22nd from 6-8pm, you can play creepy carnival games, take a scary selfie in our photo op area, and see if you can survive the Not So Fun House full of maniacs. Costumes are not required but feel free to dress up.

Permissions slips are required and are available at the front desk of the library. This program is for ages 12-18 years old.

The Spooktacular I Spy Game Will End Soon

I Spy a Pumpkin is available through October 31st. 

Readers and non-reader alike are encouraged to participate in this fun early literacy activity.





Children will search the library for clues. When they find the item they are looking for they will circle or color-in the appropriate answer on a game board.

Thank YOU!

Do you know that Friends of the Atascocita Library (FOAL) is an extremely active volunteer group that makes the library better for everyone!  Each year, they donate approximately $30,000 to the Atascocita Branch for programming and materials.

I'm delighted to announce, that due to the hard work and generosity of FOAL, we were able to purchase a new storytime rug! We hope that all of our friends and families will enjoy this beautiful addition to our meeting room.  If you are interested in making your library stronger click here to become a member of FOAL, and don't forget to  ask about volunteer opportunities.

F.O.A.L Book Sale, August 12 and 13

This weekend, drop by for the Friends of the Atascocita Library (FOAL) book sale.

There is an exclusive sale for FOAL members on Friday, August 12 from 5-7 pm.

F.O.A.L memberships are available at the door;  it cost $5.00 for individuals, $10.00 for families and $25.00 for businesses to become a member.

The sale is open to the public on Saturday, August 13th at 10am; special accommodations are made from 9 AM to 10 AM for persons with disabilities.
Most items in the book sale are priced .50 to $1.00; so, it may surprise you that the money raised by F.O.A.L is responsible for fully funding the majority of library programs. Volunteers have been working hard to fill the entire meeting room with books for children, teens and adults; I peeked into the room this morning and there are some really wonderful deals! I hope that you are able to stop by the library to discover a few special treasures at the book sale. However, please be aware that monetary donations are also welcome.

Friendly Reminder to Parents

I wanted to remind everyone that next week (July 18th - July 22nd) we will not have our regularly scheduled storytimes/babytimes.  All programing will resume the following week. 

Throughout the year, we provide seven weekly storytimes/babytimes for the community.

As always, Ms Dawn and I, look forward to hearing about your success in the Summer Reading program! Keep reading and exploring your world.
