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. 

Last Week of Summer Reading!

You've done your reading!  You've visited the programs!  Your summer has been full of activities!  Don't forget to pick up your incentives by 5 PM on this Saturday, August 6 if you registered for Summer Reading at Atascocita Branch.  We are already out of levels 3, 5, and 6 prizes for the children (although we have other incentives in place).

It's been great sharing reading with you all this summer!

Please Note: Monday, August 1, 2:30 Program Has Changed

The Amazing Magical Balloon Show for ages 3 to 12 schedule for 2:30 on Monday, August 1, is being replaced with a puppet show and fun activities!  This program does not require registration.  

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. Next week, we are taking a break from our regular schedule to provide a *puppetry camp for school aged children.  Next week, stop by the library to say hi and checkout more books. As always, Ms Dawn and I, look forward to hearing about your success in the Summer Reading program! Keep reading and exploring your world. 

 * Please be aware that the puppetry camp required registration and all openings are full.
