Have you seen the "Grant a Wish" list at our library?

When you last visited the library did you notice our "Grant a Wish" list?   Right in front of our circulation desk you will find a upright bulletin board with wishes (costs of items we need) to supply our summer reading program.  The items range in cost from $4 to our expensive programs of $100.  If you are only able to grant part of the wish you may share the wish with someone else or just provide us with whatever you are comfortable with.  This donation will be given to the Friends of the Baldwin Boettcher Library so it will be a tax deduction if you so require it.  Once you have granted our wish, your name and granted wish will be posted on the window of the Branch Manager's Office with your wish and name, so we will be able to recognize your help in contributing to the success of the Summer Reading

New catalog access.

I would like to invite you to come browse our new touch catalog.  Today, we received an iPad that allows everyone to access our catalog with an iPad.  You will find it located on the column just inside the front part of the library.  If you can not find it, please ask.  It is a great technical toy to search the catalog while getting familiar with the iPad.

See you soon so you may explore the wonderful world of tech toys.

Benjamin is the name of our bunny.

Cute Bunny Benjamin is the new name of our library bunny.   Come meet him.  Benjamin is six months old and we have been told he is a California Rabbit.  He loves to eat green leafy vegetables and he cleans himself just like a kitten.  Come enjoy watching his antics.

What's his name?

Have  you heard?  Friday, April 27th, Ms Leanne will be announcing the name of our new library rabbit. 

He is friendly and already excited to see all the children who come into the library to say hello.  So stay tuned his name will be announced tomorrow.

Baldwin Boettcher Mystery Book Club

According to the website Cozy-Mystery.com, most of the cozy mysteries that they read take place in a small, picturesque town or village, with characters who I could envision having as neighbors or friends.  I think this will apply nicely to the topic for our May Mystery Book Club.  Come join us on May 23rd at 2 pm for a discussion of the cozy mysteries you have read for the month.  

New Staff Member at Baldwin Boettcher

Please come visit the newest member of the Baldwin Boettcher Library.  He will be arriving sometime tomorrow, Friday the 13th.  We have his new home all set up and hope you will all welcome him to our library.

Once he arrives we will be voting on a name for him, so come into the library and learn how you may participate in the Name the Bunny Contest.  I will be posting a picture tomorrow.

Hope to see you this weekend so you may meet the library bunny.

Need Your Taxes Filed

Are you still needing your taxes filed?  AARP is at the Baldwin Boettcher Library doing taxes.  Did you know you do not have to be a member of AARP for them to help you.  Did you know you do not have to be a certain age for them to help you?  They will not do business taxes but they will help you with your personal filing if you bring all social security cards for the people on your return, 2010 Tax Return and all 2011 tax documents.  

When are they here?  Mondays 1 pm - 6 pm, Wednesday 12 noon to 5 pm, Friday 1 pm - 5 pm and Saturdays 12 noon until 4 pm.  It is on a first come first serve basis and you may wait a little while on some days but remember it is FREE!!

Story of the Underground Railroad

Have you heard the story of the Underground Railroad told with quilts?  Come join us at the Baldwin Boettcher Branch Library for the story of the Underground Railroad.  Explore this subject for Black History Month.  There will be a little food sampling while we explore the beautiful quilt blocks used to demonstrate how the slaves knew where to go and what to do once they escaped.  February 20th at 6 pm.  Once the demonstration is over, paper quilting (paper and scissor) will result in the creation of your own ten inch block with no sewing talents needed.  Create a block of beauty all by yourself.

February Mystery Book Club

Mystery Book Club will be meeting February 22nd at 2 pm.  We will be reading books authored by Margaret Truman.  What better way to spend President's Day than talking about mysteries that have occurred in Washington D.C.   So read your favorite Truman book or pick one up for the first time.  Come join our lively discussion of Margaret Truman's mysteries.
