Pepperoni and Worms Please!!! Monday, July 1st @ 3:30 pm

* Free Tickets Required

Tracing the origins of pizza as an example, this hands-on presentation illustrates the importance of "dirt" to kids, showing that we would all starve without healthy soil. We use hand puppets, pizza ingredients, and tubs of compost with live earthworms, beetles, & snails to prove our points. We finish up with live, dirt-loving box turtles. This will be a fun hands on program for children.

Todays program will require tickets.

 

Texas Snakes @ the Library

* Tickets required

Snakes in the library? You bet!  This is a great opportunity for children to learn why we need snakes in our environment and what to do if they see a snake.

According to Texas A & M University, "The great state of Texas is home to 37 different species of snakes, and
surprisingly, only four of those are venomous."

Road to Reading

Early readers are specifically formatted to assist children with their understanding of the written word. Unfortunately, as a collective whole, publishers do not have a universal system for leveling books.

This years summer reading theme is "Have Book Will Travel." It's important to organize a travel plan before you head off to a new adventure. The same is true when you take a trip to the library.

 It is my goal, to provide you with the tools that you need, to support a positive library experience for your family.
