Halloween Teen Craft: Skull Art

Join us on October 15th at 2 pm for our monthly teen craft. Due to its overwhelming popularity, we are bringing back Skull Art using a board, nails, hammers and string for this spooky handman-inspired craft project. Ages 10 and up. Space is limited. Registration is available online at www. hcpl.net or at the information desk. 

Sensory Story Time

We just held out first Sensory Story Time at the BB branch.  This story time, which is opened to all children ages 2-5, is especially geared to children with sensory integration issues.  It is a great opportunity for our community to welcome all children at our library and see the benefits of storytimes.

 


For each of the Sensory Storytimes we pick a theme, read books related to the theme, present songs, do fingerplays/rhymes and play games related to the subject. 


Free Citizenship Classes

 

The Baldwin Boettcher Branch Library is offering free citizenship classes every Thursday from 5 PM - 6 PM beginning October 13th and running until November 17th. Participants will learn the procedures involved in becoming a US Citizen and the information covered in the citizenship examination. Attendees need to attend all six classes.  Space is limited. Please register here or call 281-821-1320.

We LOVE Babies!

We love to see so many babies and their families attend our Lapsit program.

And we see that you love coming to the library too!

We want to give attention to all who come to our very special program.  And because of the steady increase of attendance, we will be adding a second Baby Storytime.

Our first program will be at the same time: Tuesdays at 10:00 am and the second one at 10:30 am.

These programs will be ticketed to alleviate any confusion.  Tickets can be picked up at the desk.

See you there!  

A Big Thanks to Our Summer Volunteers and Partners!
