La Merienda -- Ah, the joys of chocolate!

I love chocolate and consider it essential to life. Needless to say, I think it is wonderful that the people of Spain devote time each afternoon to "la merienda," which is a light meal or snack, such as their very special hot chocolate along with sweet bread. To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, we are having our very own merienda here at Baldwin Boettcher, at 5 PM on Tuesday, September 29. We will have several varieties of hot chocolate which may be new to you – so why not take time for a chocolate break and experience some new flavors along with us? This is a program for all family members.

Mother Goose visits our library on Tuesdays.

Come join our Mother Goose lapsit story time.  This story time is presented to babies, birth to 18 months, and their mothers, fathers, and/or caregivers.  The babies are introduced to songs, fingerplays, and board books.  At the close of the story time, the adults are given time to share with each other while the babies play with numerous toys.

Mother Goose Lapsit is a weekly story time on Tuesday, from 10 am until 10:45 am.  Everyone is welcome. Our programs are free!
