Booker Buddy Club Celebration

As a child, I could never wait for my birthday. Not because I got a birthday cake or because my parents threw me a party, but because I got a key to open up the castle at the local toy store. It was a magical experience twisting that key and walking into the castle to pick out a free toy for my birthday. At the library, we’ve designed a birthday program just for kids so that they can pick out a special treat for their birthday. We don’t have a castle, but we have a giant dog bone filled with prizes just waiting for birthday boys and girls! Become a Booker Buddy! You may be asking “Who is Booker?” Booker is our lovable, furry mascot for the library. Becoming one of his buddies gives you access to fun birthday festivities and a special party each year in April! It's easy to become a member: Sign up any time! Just stop by the Children’s Desk at any of our locations for an application. Treasure Bone Children ages 0-12 are eligible for the club. Children will receive a birthday card during the month of their birthday. They can bring in their card to pick out a cool prize, like a glow-in-the-dark cup! In April, you’ll be invited to our Booker Bash, a special birthday party for our mascot, Booker, and all of his buddies! Check out Visit Booker’s website for coloring sheets and more fun! Members are invited to join us on April 18 at 7:00 PM at the Durr branch in Independence or April 19 at 6:30 p.m. at the Erlanger Branch to celebrate Booker’s birthday! We’ll have a visit from Wild Thing, from Maurice [...]
