What's Happening @ the Little Elm Public Library

Little Elm Public Library Newsletter
Texas weather is nothing to sneeze at, even though the weather stirs up all kinds of allergies. One of the more serious weather events in Texas are hurricanes and the season for them will be here before you know it. This was brought to my attention the other day when the news listed the upcoming names that are being planned for the hurricanes. Can anyone guess what names were given for the letter A and letter W? Answers will follow in next week’s library news but feel free to let me know your ideas.

New bestsellers added to the collection this week include Seducing an Angel by Mary Balogh; The Sign by Raymond Khoury; Gone Tomorrow by Lee Child; Last Child by John Hart; and Reinvention: How to Make the Rest of Your Life the Best of Your Life by Brian Tracy.

What do shoes, pizza, and libraries have in common? Peter Piper Pizza, the Shoe Bank, and Little Elm Library are partnering together to collect shoes and help raise awareness of the Shoe Bank. There is currently a Shoe Bank collection box in the Little Elm library. On Friday, June 12th from 11am-9pm, all six Dallas/FT. Worth Peter Piper Pizza locations will be donating 15% of all food and beverage sales to the Shoe Bank. So put on your shoes and bring your unwanted extra shoes to the library or drop them off at a Peter Piper Pizza location at a DFW location nearest you on June 12th while enjoying a bite to eat knowing that you are making a difference.

Another partnership that the library has become involved in is with Drama Kids International run by Toni Rogers, instructor and owner. Drama Kids is designed to develop each student’s speaking, presentation, confidence and acting skills. This summer, the Drama Kids workshop will be held every Monday during the summer from 3:30pm-4:30pm at the library located at 100 W. Eldorado Parkway. The workshop is for ages 5-10 and costs $10 a class. Enrollment is ongoing and there is a different lesson plan every week. Props and costumes are included. Children are allowed one free trial class. For more information you can visit their website at or you can register by calling Toni at 214-592-4066. A portion of the proceeds will be used to purchase a drama book for the children’s area of the library.

The Friends of the library meeting for Thursday, June 11th has been cancelled. The next meeting will be Thursday, July 9th at 7pm. We hope to see you then.

The dog days of summer are fast approaching and we have just the program for the occasion. On Saturday, June 13th, Maggie the dog will be at the library with her owner Megan for family story time. Come relax and hear stories with Maggie. Petting is allowed.

Are you musically inclined or at least think you are? Then sign up for the Guitar Hero tournament hosted by Reilly at the library on Saturday, June 13th at 1pm. Sign up by calling the library at 214-975-0430. For more information about anything call the library at 214-975-0430 or email
