Thanksgiving

  

Thanksgiving is almost here. Decorations are up and books are flying off the display. Come get one before they are all gone.

 

It's Thanksgiving and There Are Turkeys, Pilgrims and Wild Indians in the Library!

 OOur sometimes volunteer and always dear friend, Emelie, models the latest in storytime creations for Thanksgiving. Storytime is always fun but stir in Thanksgiving and it's a wild and happy place. Join us for a Thanksgiving feast on Tuesday, November 24th at 10:30 am. For all children ages 3-5. Call the library at 281-328-3535 for further information. Gobble! Gobble!

Power of Peace

  Don't miss the beautiful display of art posters in the library by Crosby students! Lions Club International is sponsoring the contest to emphasize the importance of world peace to young people everywhere.

Cheyenne Herring, an 8th grade student at Crosby Middle School, has taken the first step to becomming an internationally recognized artist by winning the Crosby competition. She will go on to face District, Multiple District and International rounds of competition if she is to be declared International grand prize winner. We wish her the best of luck!
