The Lakehills Area Library is holding weekly preschool educational crafts. The kits can be picked up each week, and they contain a craft (currently alphabet related, but we are moving on to numbers soon) designed with preschool educational requirements in mind.
We also will release a new reading video on YouTube (search Lakehills Library for our channel).
Ms. Dianna reads a children’s story in a video lasting between five and 10 minutes per video.
The library is in the planning stages for Summer Reading.
The theme “Tails and Tales” will be used to plan crafts and other take home fun for kids of all ages. There will be crafts designed for preschoolers, elementary schoolers, and middle grade/ high schools all with varying levels of difficulty.
We would also like to remind parents of our 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program. This is a free program to encourage parents to read nightly to their children so that they are reading ready by Kindergarten.
Each child receives a paper to record the books that have been read on (and you can read the same ones over and over, we don’t mind and the kids LOVE it), and at the hundred markers they will get their name moved up on the “rainbow board” in the library. At 500 books children receive a small prize and at 1000 books, they recieve a larger prize! This program is a great way to get kids excited about reading, and give parents a way to track the goal of reading to the kids nightly. Come by the library to join this free and fun program.
The library now has a Zoom book club on the second Wednesday of each month at 1 p.m.
In March, we will be discussing The Lies That Bind by Emily Giffin. Critics call it “a mesmerizing and emotionally resonant exploration of the never-ending search for love and truth in our careers, our relationships, and deep within our own hearts.”
Please contact the library if you are interested in joining a Zoom book club!
The library would like to say a special thank you to Boyle’s True Value in Bandera and Lakehills for their donation of a rifle for the annual fundraiser raffle this year.
Interested in genealogy? The library can help you with that.
Along with the many books we have on genealogy and local history, having a library card can get you access to Ancestrycom at home for free. Usually, you need to be on the library Internet to use our Ancestry subscription, but for right now you can access it at home as well.
Lakehills Library is also a FamilySearch library, which gives our patrons access to many records that they would otherwise not be able to access through the FamilySearch website.
Call the library at 830-510-2777 for more details.
