Hurricane Season Not Over Quite Yet…

In fact, we are only just now coming to the most likely period for hurricanes. Harris County Office of Emergency Management will be on hand to help us all prepare for the unhappy possibility of a major storm visiting the Gulf Coast this year. This informative program will be in the meeting room here at Baldwin Boettcher on Tuesday, September 8, at 5:00 PM, and will include a question and answer period. All are invited to attend.

Classic Movie Matinee on September 2

Sometimes you just love to see a movie over and over again. New movies are great, of course, but there are times you just want the comfort and predictable outcome of a movie you are sure you love. We'll be showing one of these gems for our next Classic Movie Club selection, and we invite you to join us on Wednesday, September 2, at 2:00 PM, in the Baldwin Boettcher meeting room. This 1959 romantic comedy will put a smile in your heart, whether it’s the first or the tenth time you have seen it. For more information, call us at 281-821-1320.

Book Club Begins Reading for September Meeting

Appointment in Samarra    I’m currently on page 40 of John O’Hara’s Appointment in Samarra and finding it hard to put down. This classic novel published in 1934 lets us into the world of the country club set, in a small town in Pennsylvania during the first part of the Great Depression. I am reminded a bit of F. Scott Fitzgerald in the setting and characters, yet Mr. O’Hara is a very different (and also excellent!) writer.

Wednesday Movies Coming Soon!

Our new Classic Cinema Club is moving to Wednesday afternoons, beginning Wednesday, September 2. Please come at 2:00 PM on that day to watch a hilarious romantic comedy from 1959 on our big screen in the library meeting room. We will even move in some big armchairs to give you that movie theatre feel. This program will be of interest to adults and seniors, but of course all family members are welcome to attend. The Classic Cinema Club will meet monthly.

Still time to log those books

Remember, Summer Reading Program will continue through this Saturday, August 8.  It's not too late to add books to your logs. And if you haven't even registered yet?  Well, there's still time to join in and add all the books you've read this summer.  We have a great "end of summer" party planned for Saturday the 8th at 2:00 PM.  Just show up by 1:30 PM to get your free ticket to hear Non-Toxic Band!  We hope to see you there!

Book Club Will Read Culinary Mystery

Tough CookieOur six-month-old evening book club will read Diane Mott Davidson's culinary mystery, Tough Cookie, for our August 17 meeting.  The book follows Colorado caterer Goldy Bear, and since a number of intriguing recipes are included, I thought it would be fun to sample one of them.  The Chocolate Coma Cookies look delicious and fairly straightforward to make -- so if you're feeling adventurous, please join us as we discuss the mystery and consume chocolate.  We will meet as usual in the library meeting room at 6:30 PM.
