Fire Truck Visit on Thursday

Kids, please join us on Thursday (6/17) for a special visit from the Cy-Fair Volunteer Fire Department. We will meet in the front parking lot in front of the library at 1:00. No tickets will be necessary for this event.

Summer Reading Lists

Summer reading lists for Cy-fair and Katy Independent School Districts are now online. The Bear Creek Library also keeps a copy of both lists at the reference desk for you to look at while you visit the library. Get your books early before the summer rush because while many of the recommended summer reading books are currently on the shelf, they fly off the shelf once summer gets started. If you need a book that is already checked out, get on the waiting list early so that you can complete your summer reading before school begins.

Flat Destiny Visits Toddler Time

We were pleased to see a new face in last week's toddler time. Flat Destiny, who was mailed all the way from Jackson, Mississippi, is visiting with a friend of her family, Jennifer Finch, Bear Creek's young adult librarian. She is excited about seeing as much of Texas as possible, so she can take plenty of pictures back to her family in Jackson.  It was a pleasure to have Miss Destiny in storytime. She sat very politely when the stories were read, sang and danced the Hokey Pokey and she WAS the crocodile during the Five Little Monkeys. She also made a new friend, Hanna.

Children's Storytimes in April

April is around the corner and the children's department has all sort of fun and exciting themes planned for the upcoming months. Spring themes for April include chicks & eggs, bunnies, rainbows and trees. Toddler and preschool storytimes are always followed by a craft. Check the event calendar for details.

Preschool Picassos learn to blow paint.

Bear Creek Children have fun practicing blow painting techniques with India Ink during this week’s Preschool Picassos. If you missed the fun, check out this link for how to try blow painting at home.

Things that are Green

 Wear something green next week as we celebrate the week of St. Patrick's Day by reading stories about "things that are green". While I can give my word not to pinch any small children  , I cannot speak for those more mischievous than myself.

 

Dr. Seuss Birthday celebration

Bear Creek preschoolers made their own rascally Cat in the Hat  craft during storytime this past Tuesday in celebration of Dr. Seuss’ 106th birthday.

Come help us celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday (Mar. 2nd)

Come join on March 2nd during preschool storytime next week as we celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss with a special appearance from the Cat from The Cat in The Hat. Listen as the Cat reads Dr. Seuss stories, make a craft and and browse through a special display of Dr. Seuss books and movies. All of your favorites will be available for checkout...and perhaps a few you've never heard of!
