We Are Collecting Butterflies!

Here at the Baldwin Boettcher Branch Library we are collecting butterflies for The Butterfly Project at the Houston Holocaust Museum.  Bring us your homemade butterflies and we will hang them on the tree behind the circulation desk before taking them down to the Holocaust Museum in March.

Happy Valentine's Day!

At the Baldwin Boettcher Branch Library we love our patrons!  We hope your Valentine's Day is full of sweetness. 

Donate Your Tissue Boxes

We will be taking tissue box donations for the next month. We are planning to use empty tissue boxes for a children's craft. Please drop all donations off at the front desk. Thank you!

Create a Vision Board

Have fun mapping out your future, remain true to your self, and define your goals with a vision board! In this TEEN program we will be using the art of collage to create vision boards we can take home with us. Imagine that the first thing you see in the morning is a visual reminder of your passions and goals! Join us on Saturday, January 26th, from 2 PM to 4 PM to create your vision board.

Santa Pictures Are Ready!

Santa Claus pictures are ready to be downloaded from our Flickr account.

Make a Bird Feeder

Do you love birds?  Do you want to see more birds in your neighborhood?  Would you like to treat birds to a tasty treat?  Then join us on January 12th, from 2 PM to 3 PM to make a simple bird feeder.  This program is for children and teens.

Want to Vote for the 2012-2013 Bluebonnets?

Consider coming to our Bluebonnet Discussion Group! We meet on select Monday afternoons at 3:30 to discuss two or three titles. Check out our online Calendar of Events, or come into the branch to pick up a book discussion schedule. 2012-2013 Texas Bluebonnet Award voting for Baldwin Boettcher will be held on Monday, January 28th.  Any child who has read five books on the list may vote.  

Remember Halloween?

We do! And we have the pictures to prove it.

Go to our branch's Flickr page to view the photos of our trick-or-treaters. We had princesses, super heroes, and more! Children listened to a Halloween story, made a craft, and enjoyed Halloween goodies with Maggie, the Children's Librarian.

If you weren't able to make it to our Halloween celebration, then do not despair. This Saturday, we will have our Holiday Open House from 1 PM to 3 PM. Santa will be in attendance from 1:30-2:30, so make sure to bring your cameras!
