Family Fun @ the Library

The connection between early literacy and brain development has long been established.   According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, ... early brain and child development has revealed that modifiable factors in a child's early experience can greatly affect that child's learning trajectory.


Our weekly family time program has been developed to foster early learning and a love for reading. Each week, I share some of my favorite picture books, and have several family activities which will help support  school readiness.

Spooktacular Crafts

Checkout the spooktacular witches broom that the children made yesterday. Many of the families who attended the Halloween party had requested the directions for the craft.  I have attached a pdf file of the instructions that  Ms. Dawn created; this project was adapted from a blog written by

Next Monday night, children and their families are welcome to join Twilight Tales at 7 pm. We will be creating another fun project, and this program does not require registration.

Meet Your Atascocita Staff: Gloria

Name: Gloria
Title: Library Technician
Time working at branch:  An entire decade of my life

1. I’m a guru of nonfiction – travel.  Hawaii or bust!

2. On my own time, I enjoy getting out of town!  Traveling is a passion of mine.  I look forward to taking my children to Europe in the (hopefully) near future.  In the meantime, I enjoy bowling and  going to the movies.  I even own a personal Elvis themed bowling ball; however, I’m not as good at bowling as one would think.

3. One thing most people would not realize I had done was as a teen, I used to go fishing frequently.  My father and I took off on a 12 hour deep sea fishing trip the night of my high school graduation.  I was happy to bring home a celebratory  red snapper!

Coming Soon: Registration required for Tales for Tots

Due to the outstanding popularity of our Tales for Tots programs (Wednesdays & Thursdays at 10 am), we are moving to a registration format starting with the September 30 Tales for Tots.  Registration opens one week prior to the session.  Registration is weekly. 

Registration happens online through the Events Calendar.  These programs are anticipated to fill up quickly.  Space is limited. While you may bring non-participating siblings to the group, Ms. Dawn will only be preparing enough supplies for those who are registered and meet the group’s intended age (2 and 3 year olds).

Thank You Folkmanis!

Thank you Folkmanis®  for taking the time to hunt down and donate one of our favorite puppets! We are beyond excited to have the great white shark as part of our puppet collection, and look forward to using him in both story times, and puppet shows.
