Teens & Tweens Reading Club

Thank You to the Friends of the Waco-McLennan County Library for Sponsoring us this year! They provided us with the wonderful weekly prizes, and paid for the Field Trip to the Mayborn Museum.

The Library held 90 programs over the summer, of which 16 were for teens; 210 teens attended. And 277 teens signed up for the Summer Reading Club, reading 1,318 items. Wow!

Be a Hero this Summer!   Donate to the Humane Society of Central Texas

Over the Summer, the Library Teens and other patrons donated cat and dog food, treats and more to the Shelter, and also crafted hand-made toys for the animals. Thank you! We will be delivering the donations to the Shelter later this week, so check Facebook to see pictures.

The Animal Shelter always needs:

  • Canned Dog, Cat, Kitten, or Puppy Food (unopened)
  • Dry Dog, Cat, Kitten, or Puppy Food (unopened)
  • Cat or Dog Treats or Milk Bones (unopened)
