What’s New at the “Q”? 10.03.12




If you haven’t visited the library lately you may not be aware that we have ordered a lot of new material. We have new materials for adults, teens, children and especially picture books for the youngest readers.  

In addition to new materials, we have many new activities lined up for October.

From 1-6 p.m. Tuesday Rachel McAlvain from Global Health in Tulsa will be at the library to talk to interested persons about Medicare.  The session is open to all at no cost.

The first Lego Club will be held on Oct. 16. The Lego Club is open to children of all ages from preschool through teens.  

Legos will be available in different sizes to accommodate the young builders as well as the older more skilled builders.  

It’s not too late to donate Legos to the club if you have Legos that are no longer used at your home.

Oct. 16-20 is Teen Read Week and we are starting our Tuesday Teen programs for middle school and high school during Teen Read Week.  

From 5:30-6:30 p.m. Oct. 16, 23 and 30 we will have games out for teens to play.  Tuesdays in November we will have a different activity out for teen participation. The activity will be announced later.

On Oct. 19, storytelling magician Michael Corley will be at the library to present his program, “Halloween Magic.”

Q.B. Boydstun Library will be closed Oct. 17 so all of the Eastern Oklahoma District Library System libraries can participate in staff development. Staff development helps us to improve our skills and services so that we can serve our community better.

More programs are in the works, so watch for more information.  There’s always something new at the “Q”!
