What's Happening @ the Little Elm Public Library

Little Elm Public Library newsletter

Four armadillos sniffing in the dirt, all stayed together so none would get hurt. My husband and I went for a walk at the Elm Fork Nature Preserve trail in Carrollton and were lucky enough to see four baby armadillos rooting for food. We stayed very still so not to scare them. One of them came close enough to sniff my husband’s shoe. I wanted to bend down to pet it but I did not want to scare it or them away. So the moral of this story is to take time to smell the roses, watch the armadillo’s or anything else that involves taking a breather every now and then. Life is too short to be stressed out ALL the time.

Speaking of taking a breather, check out these hot new bestsellers added to the collection which include: The Doomsday Key by James Rollins; Finger Lickin’ Fifteen by Janet Evanovich; Star Wars Fate of the Jedi (Omen) by Christie Golden; Catastrophe by Dick Morris and Eileen McGann; and Knock Out by Catherine Coulter.

If you think you have the “write” stuff, visit the Little Elm Writer’s Group on Thursday, July 16th at 6:30pm. Author/Musician Rochelle Rabouin will be working with the group on their musical short story romance and the group will also be working on their short story anthology. Whether you are thinking about writing or are already a published author, come join the Little Elm Writer’s Group. The group meets the third Thursday of each month at 6:30pm. We are also looking for any agents or publishers who would like to speak to the group.

Pepperoni, gooey cheese, black olives, tasty tomato sauce, and every thing else that is edible…oh sorry, I was thinking about the pizza that I was going to have at the Peter Piper Pizza fundraiser on Friday, July 17th between 5pm-8pm. Peter Piper Pizza is located at Eldorado and Dallas Toll way, 12021 Dallas Parkway in Frisco. The Little Elm Library will receive 15% of all food and beverage sales and if you buy your game tokens at the counter we get a portion of that as well. It’s a great way to spend a Friday with family or friends and make a difference at the same time. Either stop by the library for a flyer to bring with you or send me an email at and I will send you a copy of the flyer for you to print off. Family, friends, food, and fun for a Friday night…life is good.

Stories, songs, movies, and crafts for adults and children. These are all happening on Saturday, July 18th. Family story time for all ages is at 10:30am; Children’s film festival happens at 11am. From 11am-noon Natalie McPhail will teach Mini-Mosaics to age 4-9 for $5 (registration required). Then at 1pm there will be a Saturday movie matinee. Also at 1pm the new Knitting club meets (bring a project and enjoy the company of others who like to knit) and there will be an Intro to jewelry design class for ages 13 and up ($15 per person and registration is required because there is a list of supplies that need to be brought to class) For more information about library events call 214-975-0430, email or visit the website at
