Do you like to read?
Finding a good library in the area will afford you many opportunities. Besides having a place for some quiet time and finding good books — you’ll have the chance to connect with other book lovers, encourage your little ones to read, volunteer and more.
But did you know the Bee Cave Public Library is more than just a “good” library?
According to Library Journal’s Index of Library Service 2012, Bee Cave is home to a nationally top-ranked public library based on a comparison with libraries of similar population, size and budget.
At the Bee Cave Public Library, you can take advantage of all sorts of reading programs, special events, cool online tools, and more.
Here are a few things to get you started:
Fun for the Whole Family
Your up-and-coming readers can enjoy weekday story-times with Ms. Laurie and the Bee. Check out Bee’s Storytime Buzz to learn about all the programs for children.
When school is out, the whole family can be part of the Summer Reading Program. Participate in book clubs, craft days, science activities and more to keep everyone reading during the summer.
Even teenagers have the opportunity to come up with ideas on how to make the library a cool place for teens by volunteering on the Teen Advisory Board.
Sign up for the monthly newsletter for more information or like their Facebook Page to keep up on the latest announcements.
Bee Cave Book Club
On the second Thursday of each month, the Bee Cave Book Club meets at the library at 7p. This informal group discusses all types of books and new members are always welcome. Check out the Bee Cave Book Club Selections and jump in.
Keep Your Kids Safe Online
The Bee Cave Library is your resource for a list of Exemplary Kids Websites that have been evaluated by the Association for Library Service to Children. The Great Websites for Kids Committee performs updates three times a year with newly evaluated and acceptable sites. They also review the database twice a year to help ensure the sites your kids are visiting are relevant, appropriate and accessible.
Learn a New Language
If you’re a member of the Bee Cave Library, enter your library card number at Mango Languages (only accessible through the library website) and start learning to speak Spanish, French, Japanese, Chinese, and several other languages. You can start with a basic language course and in just a few hours you’ll learn how to have a common and polite conversation. Work your way up to the harder courses from there.
