Way back at the start of 2020, we took this photo while planning for a life-size Candyland event. That didn’t pan out, but visions of lollipops and licorice still danced in our heads. We’ve been brainstorming ways to take Candyland out into the community instead.
🍭🍫🍬
Starting January 23rd, you’ll be able to visit four outside locations around town for some super sweet activities. We’ll have more details for you over the next couple of weeks, but in the meantime you can read an exclusive sneak peek from the Lake Travis View. We’ve linked to the article in our bio!

BCPL Presents The Jolly Christmas Postman

We wanted to do something special for you this holiday season, so we put together a reading of The Jolly Christmas Postman by Janet and Allan Ahlberg. Settle in with a blanket and a mug of cocoa...this story can be enjoyed by anyone from one to ninety-two.
💌
This charming tale of the Jolly Postman making the rounds on Christmas Eve is one of our favorites. He visits lots of familiar faces from Red Riding Hood to the Gingerbread Man to Mr. Claus himself, hand-delivering letters and treats along the way. Make sure you check out a copy from the library to read the notes tucked inside, too!
📫
We hope you and yours have a warm and safe holiday season. If you have the chance, take the time to mail a letter to someone who could use it. Who knows...maybe the Jolly Postman himself will be the one to deliver it!

One of the best parts of the holiday season is sending cards to your loved ones. We have card kits at the library right now that you can make at home! These delightful card kits are from ATX Paperhouse and are available during our front door pickup hours. Supplies are limited, so please only take one per adult or teen. For the little ones, we also have a card-making kit from Ms. Meliss available are pickup. You can find tutorials on how to assemble the kits on our YouTube page and the ATX Paperhouse blog also has a few tips and tricks, which you can check out here: https://atxpaperhouse.blogspot.com
💚❤️
We’d like to give a special shout-out to Angela Slutz from ATX Paperhouse for putting the kits together. You might remember her from our Valentine-making What’s For Dessert earlier this year. Supplies are available on a first-come, first-served basis so make sure to stop by soon if you’re interested.
