Special Storytime Party

We are having a storytime party, but for whom? 

Everyone is sure to have Seussational time as we celebrate the life and work of a man with many names. Of whom am I speaking? The beloved children's author Theodor Seuss Geisel, of course. You've never heard of him? Well, that is because he went by several nom de plumes. He wrote one book, Because a Little Bug Went Ka-choo!, as Rosetta Stone. He also wrote several early readers as Theo LeSieg, but you probably know him as the one and only Dr. Seuss!

 

Goodbye, Chicks: Project Peep Ends at Atascocita This Saturday

On Saturday morning, we will say goodbye to our baby chicks as they go home to the Blue Star Ranch. Project Peep has been an amazing experience from seeing the chicks hatch to tracking their progress every day. You can say goodbye today and tomorrow morning at the library. 

To learn more about Project Peep, you can read David Cherry's article here.

Ducks and Chickens in the Library?!

January 13th is National Rubber Ducky Day! However, you don't have to wait until then to come  see the 259 unique duckies in the display case. Children can then play the  I Spy Ducks game! 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.

1. Come to the Information Desk at the library and request for a game board.  This game can be completed individually, as a family, or as a group activity.

Calling VolunTeens!

Teens, are you interested in earning volunteer hours?  Our VolunTeen program runs by semesters, and the spring semester is about to start.  If you are 13-18, stop by the Atascocita Branch Library service desk to pick up a VolunTeen application.  The application is due January 14, and you must be able to attend a mandatory training on January 21 at 2:00 PM.
