What's Happening @ Little Elm Public Library

Little Elm Public Library newsletter
Visiting the granddaughter was a new, exciting, and learning experience. First I learned that flying for long periods of time makes me queasy. Second, boy babies are not the only ones who get the urge to go to the bathroom when their diapers are off. Third, babies are unpredictable. For example, I was planning on taking a picture of my granddaughter and I in our pumpkin outfits on Halloween. Well, she had other plans, like spitting up three times on the outfit. So we took the picture before I left. All in all, the trip was great. Everyone is doing well, my granddaughter is a beautiful, well behaved baby and my daughter is a fantastic mom. It really does pay to try to set a good example as a parent.

In Little Elm, the third annual Lakeshore Fall Clean-up is coming up. The Texas Waterway Cleanup Program is a joint effort between Keep Texas Beautiful (KTB) and Keep Little Elm Beautiful (KLEB). The event will be held on Saturday, November 7th, at 9am. The location is the entrance of Johnny Broyle’s Nature Trail off of Lakeshore Dr. and Circle Dr. Bring hand protection. If you have any questions, please contact the Keep Little Elm Beautiful Committee at 972-740-6654.

After your morning cleanup on Saturday, November 7th, drop by the Little Elm Library and spend the rest of your day with us. At 10am, Credit Help USA will be presenting a free workshop (registration is required); Family Story time is at 10:30am; the children’s film festival is at 11am; Intro to Knitting Class is at 11am (a $10 registration fee is required); the up close and personal biography book club is at 12:30pm; the movie matinee, Toastmasters, and Crafter’s Guild is all at 1pm. Something for everyone.

Speaking of cleaning up, the One Bridge t-shirts are on sale just in time for early Christmas shopping or to wear during the Fall Clean-up. Shirts are two for five dollars. It’s a once in a lifetime deal for a one of a kind shirt. The sale ends November 19th and then they will be gone. This can also be a great stocking stuffer, literally.

Mark your calendar for all the events happening at the library on Saturday, November 14th. At 10am AARP will be presenting their Safe Driving program (fee and registration are required); 10am National Gaming Day; 10:30am Family Story time with Maggie the Dog certified through the Delta Society; 11am Holiday Craft fair; 11am Children’s film festival; and 1pm Saturday movie matinee.

Finish your day with a good book. Bestsellers added to the collection include True Compass by Edward M. Kennedy; The Scarpetta Factor by Patricia Cornwell; Blood Game by Iris Johansen; A Touch of Dead by Charlaine Harris; Evidence by Jonathan Kellerman; The Professional by Robert B.
