Outreach Reaches In to the Library

Recently the Girl Scout Troop #11467 made a special visit to the Baldwin Boettcher Library on their world of girl's journey.  They have been studying what girls can do and learning to see their potential and true value in life.  As part of that process, they visited the residents at the Magnolia Heights Memory Center during the Christmas season.  They spent time with the troops and sang their favorite carols.  Another part of that journey was here at the library.  They had a story time with Margo our Children's Librarian and learned about amazing women in books plus made thematic crafts.  They have put together a wonderful book of their own telling the story of their journey and it is waiting to be seen by all at our circulation desk.  So if you are in the girl scouts working on a badge, make us a part of y...

Jenkins Elementary School wins once again!

Once again, Jenkins Elementary School has won the drawing on December 16th for our educational box tops.  Two brothers, Elijah (3rd grade) and Judah (1st grade) shared the 583 box tops that were collected during this time period.  The Friends of the Baldwin Boettcher Library also donated juice boxes and popcorn so the classes could have a popcorn party to celebrate their success.

If you want to help your community, this is an easy way to do it.  Just cut out the box tops you see on various products and bring them into the Baldwin Boettcher Library.  We are now taking nominations of schools to be entered in our next drawing on March 16, 2014.  The lucky school will receive all the box tops brought into the library from now until March 16th.
