I scream, you scream, we all scream for Ice Cream! Right? Absolutely! The weather’s warming up too. So guess what? Carl Wunsche High School National Honor Society Students are providing a program for you all to gain more exposure to some fun science like making ice cream on your own. Isn’t that amazingly good? I know that’s one thing you’d all want to know! So come and join us on Wednesday, March 26th 2014 from 4pm - 5pm in the Robin Bush Activity Room

Let Us Welcome Spring!

Finally, we are getting closer to spring! How exciting! Don’t you just love the warmth of the sun, chirping of the birds and magic happening all around you? I love it and I bet you do too. So to welcome Spring with open arms and with pretty crafts, join me on March 18th 2014 at 4:30 pm in the Robin Bush Activity Room to make some Spring crafts. Would you be there? I hope to see you then!

Honk! Honk! Here Comes the Big Truck!

Hey kids, I bet you have seen your share of trucks on the road, right? Have you ever been inside one though? What? Never? Oh, we need to fix that, don’t we? You should get an opportunity to explore a real truck and get your own first-hand experience. Well, do you agree with me? Yes!!!! So, Barbara Bush Branch Library has organized for a real truck just for you all to explore. Join us on March 12th 2014 at 2:30 PM in the library parking lot and have loads of fun!!! See you then and please don’t hesitate in spreading the word!

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.

 

 

Be My Friend!

Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you! So I guess by now you know that once a month on the third Tuesday, we make crazy good crafts. You do, right? Yes I thought you would! This month on February 18th 2014 @ 4:30 PM in the Robin Bush Activity Room, we will be making some friendship bracelets in the light of Valentine’s Day. Join me in making one or may be more friendship bracelets and have fun!

Let's Celebrate Black History Month

Do you all know that we are celebrating the Black History Month? No? Ah! But now you do. So Barbara Bush Branch Library is presenting a program for adults at the Community Center across from the Library. But is it fair that only adults get to participate in the program? No sir! So do you know what we did? We planned a special performance for the younger ones. We have Ms. Kathy Culmer, a wonderful storyteller to come and do a storytime for us and then we’ll have crafts to make and I know for sure that ‘crafting’ never goes wrong.

Say Hello To Shamrock!

Almost everyday sitting at the Reference desk, I witness a little body or sometimes two making a straight beeline to the big stuffed horse we have in the Barbara Bush Branch Library Children’s Area shouting his name “Maaaaack!!” with pure delight on their faces. Well now to add to that joy, we are very delighted to announce that Mack has been joined by a friend and yes it’s another horse! His name is Shamrock and he is, unlike Mack, gray in color. He has come to us as a very kind donation by Wells Fargo, the Cypresswood branch, made possible for us by Mr. Samuel Edwards, the VP there. We are very grateful to them.

 

Board Game, Anyone?

Xbox 360, Wii, PS4… know any of these games? Of course you do!!! In this age of technology, almost all the kids play video games or computer games and I bet they are pretty cool but what about games which don’t have or need a screen or a mouse or a remote control or even electricity? I am sure you know what I am getting at, eh? Yes I am talking about the board games such as Monopoly, Scrabble, Checkers, Battleship and so many more.

We have all those games and more here at Barbara Bush Branch Library. Come and join us on Tuesday,  January 28th (or any fourth Tuesday of the month) @ 4:30 pm to have fun with one or more of these games. Bring a friend or two with you and show off your gaming skills. Happy gaming!
 

Cool Crafts For Cool Weather

 

What do you think of the weather? Cold, huh? Yes! That’s right. So what do you do in the afternoons when you come home from school during these cold days? Well, if you are stuck with nothing fun to do, come to the Barbara Bush Branch Library on Tuesday, January 21st 2014 to make some fun winter crafts. The program will be at 4:30 pm in the Robin Bush Activity Room. I hope to see you then.
