For The Children/Para Los Niños

We will be holding special workshops for parents and children to work together learning how to succeed in different areas of life.  The first one will be held in the meeting room, on the 12th of January at 10:30 am.  The subject will be on "How Your Child Learns".  All classes will be presented in English only.  After each session parents will be asked to fill out a survey and they will receive one free ticket to the Children's Museum.  How cool is that?!  So, please come up to the Octavia Fields Circulation Desk and sign up today.  For those that don't get a chance to sign up, don't worry; "walk-ins" are welcome.



Bells will not be ringing, but music will certainly be in the air at Octavia Fields on Monday, December 14, 2009.  Peggy Carter, a talented composer, and award-winning hammer dulcimer player, will be performing beautiful Holiday songs for everyone's entertainment from 4pm to 6pm.  So, please join us for the musical festivities!




Special Delivery at Octavia Fields

We are proud to announce that on Tuesday, November 2, 2009, Octavia Fields received a special delivery weighing 19 pounds.  The big bundle was hand delivered by our U.S. Congressman, Ted Poe.  It is a 2 volume set and contains a total of 1,990 pages of the latest health care bill filed in the House of Representatives.  The bill is also accessible on line, but if you want to see it and actually hold in your hands, it is available for the public to view at the Octavia Fields reference desk.



Peek-a-“boo” Story Time has temporarily moved.  Starting October 19th, the story times for all ages will be held in the Children’s area due to Early Voting. They will resume in The Meeting Room on November 4th. We look forward to seeing you soon!



The Science Alive project for Tuesday, October 13th, will be “Float Your Boat”. We will be building our own boats and experimenting with what floats, what sinks, and why. So ahoy all you little sailors ages 7 to 12 years; bring ashore all your ideas and questions. We will be setting sail in the activity room at 4:30 P.M. sharp.
