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.

Mystery Book Club

Mysteries lovers come enjoy the discussion of our favorite authors, books and settings.  Sometimes we even discuss our favorite way of doing away with someone.

Treats are always offered so as we discuss we enjoy a treat.  Sometimes the recipe will even be prepared from the books we have read.

January 11th at 2 pm we will be meeting again.  So come join us as we share our favorite bibliophile mysteries.  One author we thought about reading was Kate Carlisle.  There is also a series of mysteries about a book store ghost.  So search hi and low for your favorite or just needing something to read bibliophile mystery and we will discuss it during our next book club meeting.  See you there.

Something exciting is happening at our Library!

On December 20th, Baldwin Boettcher Library will introduce our new Children's Librarian to our Lapsit and Preschool Storytime participants.  If you have the time, please stop in and give a warm welcome to our new staff member and say "Hello".    More information will be forthcoming and even a picture once she has started at our branch.

 

Mystery Book Club

Mysteries are on the rise.  The Who Done Its are growing in popularity.  On December 21, 2011, the Baldwin Boettcher Mystery Book Club will be once again discovering Culinary Mysteries.  Come join us for a lively discussion and bring your own favorites on this topic.  See you at 2 pm on December 21st.

Mystsery Book Club

Come one, come all.  The Mystery Book Club is back!! We had a great first meeting since our hiatus.  We talked about one of our favorite authors who passed away this year.  There will be no more "The Cat Who..." books by Lillian Jackson Braun.  Her books will be missed.  They were a fun read.  However, we moved on and decided that this next month we would concentrate on "unusual occupations".  One of the group said there are books out there about a pet sitter.  One pet is even an iguana.  So see if you are able to produce a book with a more unusual occupation than that.

We will discuss the occupations, and eat a light snack.  Come join in the fun and lively discussion.  See you on October 19th at 2 pm.

Mystery Book Club

I would like to take this opportunity to invite everyone to attend our Mystery Book Club.  We took a short break over the summer but now it's time to dig back into the mysteries we all enjoy.  I thought we might find a mystery that is written in our favorite state.  This gives us lots of choices and may bring a new and exciting author to the discussion.  Wednesday will continue to be our meeting day and the time will still be 2 pm.  So grab your books and come join us for our Mystery Book club discussion.  See you there.  Anyone is welcome to attend.
