Our Children’s Summer Reading Program will be starting on Thursday, June 1, and will continue through July with our end of the summer party on July 28. Your librarian is very excited to see how much our program grows from last year. Our theme is “Bee Kind.” If you have children or know of any children who would enjoy our summer program, please tell them to call the library at (936) 642-2483 or come by the library during our working hours.
We are honored to have Dallas and Wall’E coming to the library on Tuesday, June 6, to read to the children. Wall’E will be 6 years old on July 4. Wall’E was found at the U.S. border wall, hence his namesake. He was rescued and is now a Certified Therapy Dog who loves to read to children. Your librarian is excited to have Dallas and Wall’E in our library.
Our Summer readers will also have extra activities such as greeting card classes. We have greeting cards for sale at the library for a fundraiser. The cost is $1 per card. Please remember this when you need cards and support your library. We will have Father’s Day Cards for sale coming in the future.
•Texas Workforce Solutions representative will be here in the library on Wednesday, June 7, from 1 to 4 p.m. This is a service provided for anyone who needs help with employment opportunities.
•In regard to book donations, the library will not accept any books from individuals until after we move to the new location. Your librarian is in the process of boxing books getting ready for the move. We appreciate your understanding.
•Our New Building Fund balance is $5,293.88. We are still collecting pennies for our 1 Million Pennies Fund Drive. I get so excited every time someone brings me a baggie of pennies. It is the little things that add up. Thank you everyone.
