Big Bubble Circus

Jim Jackson has entertained crowds for years. Jim’s signature routine features soap bubbles of all sizes and shapes and concludes with two children from the audience finding themselves inside of a giant bubble! This family-friendly performance will delight people of all ages. Be sure to join us on June 1st at 3:30 pm  for the Big Bubble Circus!

Live Clue at the Library

Teens entering grades 6-12 are cordially invited to celebrate the end of another school year by having pizza, soda, and enjoying peaceful conversation at East Morgan County Library. Well, that WAS the plan before someone went and killed the host. Your new mission (should you choose to accept it) is to find out who killed the host, with what weapon, and where at in the library. Winners will be rewarded handsomely and losers will be disposed of accordingly. Join us for Live Clue at the Library on May 20th at 6 pm!

 

**Any mention of death/murder/maiming/mayhem is purely fictional and only has to do with the Live Clue game.

 

Clue Game Day

Come play Clue at the library! Those of you who do not know how to play may find this event helpful for future events we have planned (hint, hint). Join us and learn one of the greatest murder/mystery games of all time! 

When: May 6th at 1:30 pm

Book Trailers

What makes you want to watch a movie? Maybe you know about it beforehand. Maybe it was based on a book you’ve read. Most of the time, you watch a movie because you’ve seen the trailer and it piqued your interest. What about with books? What makes you read a book? Wouldn’t it be nice if there were movie trailers for books? Join us on April 22nd at 1:30 pm to make a book trailer of your favorite book. Maybe you can inspire someone else to read a new book!

Ten Things to Know About Money

As part of our Common Cents for Colorado program, TAG team will get to learn about good money managing skills. As always, there will be food and fun (even though we are talking about money management). Be sure to join us on April 8th at 1:30 pm!

TAG: Allegiant

Book/Movie Club and TAG Team will be going to see Allegiant in theaters on March 18th at 1:30 pm. All members of both groups are welcome to attend. Permission slips must be signed and returned prior to boarding the bus. You can get permission forms from your teacher (if you are in Book/Movie Club) or at the library (if you are in TAG or lost your first form). We always have lots of fun on these trips so don’t miss out!

We can’t wait to see you here!

New Teen Librarian

Welcome our new Teen Librarian

As some of you may know, we have currently employed a new Teen Librarian: Tammy Bass. Tammy was born and raised on a farm north of Snyder for her 30 some years. She started her schooling at Prairie School in New Raymer, CO, but completed most of her secondary schooling and graduated from Brush High School. She worked as a CNA at Eben Ezer Lutheran Care Center and helped provide care for some of the elderly around Morgan County. Some of her hobbies include reading her favorite genre of inspiration/suspense, youth group activities, and hanging out with her dog Sasha.

Tammy enjoyed taking care of the elderly, but wanted to do something else with her life as well and so she moved to Bolivar, MO to attend Southwest Baptist University and received her Bachelor’s degree in Christian Ministry with a concentration in youth. She moved back to the Brush area and began working here at the East Morgan County Library in May of 2014.

During her time here at the library, Tammy learned how to shelve, work the front desk and perform many other tasks important to our “library world”. However, recently in April she became our new Teen Librarian. Laura McConnell was formerly our Children’s/Teen Librarian, but Tammy has bravely stepped into those shoes and has done a great job. Tammy has helped with the Summer Reading Program and has planned the Teen Advisory Group (TAG) activities this summer (which by the way, have been fun). The next TAG event will be in August. If you are interested in participating in TAG we would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

So, when you come in, say “hi” to our new Teen Librarian.
