June 2024

Families with children of all ages will have an opportunity to learn all about snakes at a special program, “Texas Snakes & More,” on Tuesday, June 11, from 2:00 to 3:00 pm, in the Meeting Room of the Sienna Branch Library.

The program will be repeated on Thursday, June 13, from 2:00 to 3:00 pm, in the Meeting Room of the Missouri City Branch Library.

Children will be able to get an up-close look at live, non-venomous, non-aggressive snakes while learning about reptiles from around the world. In this interactive program, presenters help both the children and the parents with their fears and apprehensions about snakes while teaching them why they are important for our environment and what to do when a snake is spotted in its natural habitat.

This program is made possible through the generous support of the Friends of the Library organizations that support these libraries. Proceeds from the Friends of the Library book sales and annual membership dues help to underwrite the costs of special programming and various cultural events at the library.

FBCL’s annual Summer Reading Challenge encourages reading among children from birth and up, as well as teens and adults. “Adventure Begins at the Library” is the theme for this year’s Summer Reading Challenge. Readers of all ages can earn rewards based on the number of books they read or time they spend reading, and children can participate in a variety of fun and exciting programs at the libraries in June and July.

These programs are free and open to all ages. A free handstamp or ticket – available at the Reference Desk before the programs begin – is required for entrance. Space is limited, and spots are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
