Baldwin Boettcher Story Time Information

Story time

 If you haven't stopped by our story time recently, make sure that you  do!  Last week for our craft we made our own stories.  We used foam  stickers, and the children came up with some pretty complex stories. 

Benjamin Bunny found a new home!

We are sad to say that Benjamin Bunny had to find a new  home.  Due to technical difficulties, Benjamin was not able to remain at the library.  Please remember Benjamin and all the fun we  had watching him, feeding him and loving him.  We know Benjamin will miss all of you too, but  his new home is bigger and better.  Benjamin will get more time out of his cage and actually be handled more often.  He will not be left alone overnight.  We are sure he will find ways to satisfy his curious nature by exploring his new surrounding.  So for now.  Bye, Benjamin.  We will miss you!

Mystery Book Club : Female characters wanted.

The Baldwin Boettcher Mystery Book Club will be gathering books about female main characters.  Is she a detective?  Private eye?  Caterer? Chef?  How does she solve her cases?  Come join us on August 22nd at 2 pm.  We will try to find something that everyone likes and then share the ones we like best.  See you on the 22nd.

Summer Reading Ends Soon!

Just to let you know the end of Summer Reading is coming soon.  In two weeks, Aug 11th, summer reading will be the last day of summer reading.  If you have not turned in your list of 10+ books, now is the time to do so.  We would love to present your 2012 Summer Reading Certificate to you.  Yes, we still have some really neat books for you to look over and choose one.  Remember you only get a book for the first 10.  At 25 books you will get a certificate from the library and another bookmark.  Then at 50 books you will receive a ribbon and a magnifying glass while supplies last.  So "Get a Clue at your library" and finish up the summer by getting your certificate to show your family, teachers and others that you read 10 books over the summer.

Hope to see you at Baldwin Boettcher soon to take advantage of this great offer.

Changes are coming! Changes are coming!

The staff at the Baldwin Boettcher Library has been rearranging shelving, furniture and library items.  We are trying to remove the dust that is lingering on the shelving.  We have moved the movies to a new home along with the shelving that holds them.  We will try to post pictures when the project is finished.

We hope to have all the cleaning and arranging done by our Holiday open house on December 8th.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.  The Library staff at Baldwin Boettcher.

June Program Winner!

For the month of June, Baldwin Boettcher Library had numerous fingerprints located all over the library. Customers had a chance to walk around, count the fingerprints and turn in their best guess as to how many fingerprints they found. Our winner for the June Program was Alistair D'Camp.  He is six years old and really enjoyed receiving his prize.

Thanks to all the other participants who gave us their best guess.
