Let Us Learn Something About Saving Wildlife!

Have you ever come across a wounded animal or bird? Have you wondered what happens to them or who takes care of them. Well, if you did wonder about that, I will tell you about this wonderful group called “Friends of Texas Wildlife”. They are a group of trained volunteers and they have permission to provide care for injured animals in Montgomery and North Harris counties. If you are interested in learning more about them, join us at Barbara Bush Branch Library on May 13th 2014 at 4:30 pm. And guess what? They will have an animal attraction for you too!

Birthday Special

Do you know what happened on March 2nd, 1904? A great storyteller was born who explained to us that it’s okay to be different. Dr. Seuss gave us so many wonderful friends and taught us some very valuable life lessons. To honor such a man, his birthday has been marked as National Read Across America Day. This year March 2nd falls on a Sunday so it will be celebrated on March 3rd.

The Winner Is...

Read any Bluebonnet books for 2013-2014? Yes? I thought you must have read at least a few. Well, did you vote for any? I bet you did if you are a third grader. So they announced the 2013-2014 Texas Bluebonnet Winner and the winner is… Ten Rules You Absolutely Must Not Break If You Want to Survive the School Bus by John Grandits. Long title but a wonderful book.
