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.

Baldwin Boettcher Mystery Book Club

Summer is heating up and the kids are out of school.  The Baldwin Boettcher Mystery Book Club will be meeting on July 25th at 2 pm.  The books we will be looking at are our favorite children's mysteries.  Remember Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, and many more.  Need a new children's mystery come discover some of the new authors and discuss how mysteries for children have changed.  How do the juvenile mysteries differ from the adults?  

So find your favorite children's mystery author or book and come join us on July 25th at 2 pm.

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.
