Margaret and her Mom

With all the presents and decorations put away its good to get back to a weekly routine of going to the library and checking out books.  Margaret and her mom are looking for princess books, a favorite of Margaret. 

What Would We Do Without Our Friends?

 Charlotte Brooks and Glenda Lindsay, two very special people, are celebrating their birthdays in early December. Their endless help with our book sales make it possible for us to have all the wonderful programs we offer.  Charlotte and Glenda are also on the Friends of Maud Marks Library board. Thanks Charlotte and Glenda for all your support and  we hope you have  wonderful birthdays. :)

Over the River and Through the Woods

Its here, the 2011 holidays are upon us. The library will be closed Thursday-Sunday November 24-27.  Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday regularly scheduled programs such as Toddler Time and Story time remain as scheduled.  Don't forget to load up on DVDs, audio books and books for your trip to Grandmas.

We have lots of things planned for December, so be on the look out for awesome classes for adults, programs for children and a special family event on December 16.

Happy Eating!

 

Don't Be Bored!

Come to the library and discover yourself!  Read a book, look up your ancestors, learn a language, read about the newest health craze, fix your car, take a computer class, bring your child or your neighbor's child to story time, or join a book club. The possibilities are endless. There is something for everyone.

Storytime Puppet Show

On Wednesday, September 28 at the 11:15 am preschool story time, Charity and Judy will  entertain the kids with a puppet show. The puppets we will be performing with  were bought with funds from the Friends of the Maud Marks Library. So while you  are here, check out the used books for sale or bring a few to donate.

 

 

Children's Book Series

So, your kid comes come from school one day and ask you if you could check at the library for a Candy Apple book or maybe a My Weird School Daze book or maybe a My Sister the Vampire book and  they don't know the author. What do you do? Have no fear. Stop by one of the information desks and ask one of us. We updated our children's series section and it should be much easier to find those titles. Instead of being in author alphabetical order, they are in order according to the title of the series. Hopefully this will make it easier to find.

Summer Reading Program Success

Thanks to all the readers and volunteers that participated in the 2011 Summer Reading Program.  We had a very successful turnout  and lots of kids will be going back to school having kept up with their reading skills.

Who Said You Can't Eat at the Library?

Domino"s Pizza supplied fun and lots of pizza for all the kids during one of our weekly afternoon adventures.

The Summer Reading Desk is Open for Business

 

Max, and other Maud Marks volunteers are hoping you keep them busy this summer with your reading progress. Remember, you still have another month to record and claim your certificate and free book. If you have already done so, keep reading and recording.  Max wants to put your name on the wall. Ribbons are rewarded after you complete 50 books or 500 pages/minutes.
