Toddler Time - Our Numbers are Growing

We are excited about the success of Toddler Time! Because of the increased demand, we will now offer an additional Toddler Time on Tuesdays at 11:15 AM. We will have two Toddler Time programs on Tuesdays at 10 AM and 11:15 AM and one program on Thursday at 10 AM.

The Toddler Time program is specifically designed to gently transition the toddler to a more structured form of programming. Kingwood Branch tailors this program as an exchange between the toddler and librarian, with personal touches to identify each toddler as their own special person.

With this in mind, we will limit the number of participants to 15 per class and we will start a registration procedure.

Kingwood Branch ReaderNation Winner Announced!

Andrea Morehead is the Kingwood Branch winner for the 2010 Adult Summer Reading Program, ReaderNation, of the $50.00 Amazon.com gift certificate given by Harris County Friends Council. This is the second year she has entered the ASRP, as we call it.

She said she was taught to read at a very young age and has enjoyed it ever since. “Every book is a new adventure. Reading to me is like a movie playing in my mind. Each character has their own voice, personality and style,” she says. Andrea looks on reading as a great escape from reality, into another world. Sort of like taking a break from the reality from our lives and seeing into others.

With winning the prize, it looks like Andrea will be able to take flight into several new worlds. Congratulations! We can be sure she will enter again next year.
