A Christmas Surprise!

Shhh…the elves will creep in during the Thanksgiving holiday. At least we think that’s what happens. All we know is that every year, while we’re all celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday and eating lots of food, our library is magically transformed.  When we open on Monday, Dec. 1st, there will be several Christmas trees and lots of decorations. So come by and enjoy the Christmas cheer. You may even see an elf!

Wags & Tales

I think you will all agree with me if I say dogs are adorable, right? And also that they are friendly. I had an idea that we would all agree! But did you know that dogs also love listening to books as much as you do? And they like it even more if kids read to them. No matter what your reading level is, they will listen to you patiently and will not judge you whatsoever.

A Great Book and Beautiful Art

Join us as The Pen and Paintbrush Book Club reads Loteria by Mario Alberto Zamrano. It’s a lyrical, wonderful novel about a young girl, Luz Maria Castillo. Her family is falling apart and she copes by looking at her deck of Loteria cards. Each card reminds her of family memories and through these we learn the story of her family. Loteria refers to a Mexican card game and each chapter has a beautiful picture of one of the cards.  The Pen and Paintbrush Book Club is a collaborative effort of the Barbara Bush Library and the Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Art. Three times a year, the group reads a book that relates to the current exhibit at the museum and then meets to discuss it and view the exhibit. The meeting for Loteria will be Thursday, Dec. 11 at 1:30 at the Pearl Finch Museum. For more information, call Clara Maynard at the library.
