Harvest time

    

Afternoon Art

Each month on the the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays at 4:30 pm, we have a craft session for elementary school-aged children. We'll be having some extra sessions uring Spring Break . To see pictures from some of the things we've done in the past, go to the library's online photo album on Flickr. 

Here's what we're doing this week (Feb 23): flower fairies.flower faires

Flipped --the movie

The movie version of Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen is out! This was a Bluebonnet book in 2003-4.

It looks like most everybody was like me and didn't know there was a movie version (oops! I should know these things; but they don't show many movie trailers on HGTV) because there are hardly any requests for it.

Here's a link to the trailer if you want to watch it.
