New Things in Store

The Baldwin Boettcher Library has been making many changes over the last year to create an environment that is pleasant, organized, and technologically friendly.  The latest change we are making is we will no longer offer Family Storytime on Wednesday evenings.  Instead we will be providing a more diverse array of programs for the whole community to enjoy.  Such as more food programs and art classes that the public has shown a great interest in.  Don't worry folks we still have our other story times available for the kids to enjoy.  Lapsit Storytime on Tuesdays at 10 am, Toddler Storytime on Thursdays at 10:30 am, and Preschool Storytime on Tuesdays at 11 am.  So come back to see and experience what is new at Baldwin Boettcher Library!

School's Back in Session

SUMMER READING KICKS OFF WITH A BANG

Abubakr African Drummming and Story Telling helped to kick-off the 2010 Summer Reading Program here at Octaviia Fields Library.  Abubakr Kouyate is a djembe master performer and teacher.  During the program, Abubakr taught the children authentic West African rhythms.  Then, he asked for volunteers to come try their hand at playing the West African djembe drums.  The children and parents enjoyed  participating and playing their own rhythms on the drums.

For The Children/Para Los Ninos

"Your life + your time = MATH"

Our daily lives are filled with tasks that require math skills.  Our next workshop for parents and children will be called "Math at Home".  It will be held in the meeting room during pre-school story time, on Tuesday May 11th, at 10:30 am.  We will be having fun games with addition, creating patterns, and measuring.  Parents don't forget to fill out your survey for a free ticket to admit 4 guests to the Children's Museum of Houston.  So please come, and join the fun!
