It’s Dinovember, and the dinosaurs are coming out to play, make messes, and have a good time – inspired by Refe and Susan Tuma’s What the Dinosaurs Did Last Night. (The photo above is one of their amazing Dinovember scenes, and you can find it – and lots of others – at their website.) Watch for photos of dinosaurs taking over Baxter Memorial Library, and send in a few snapshots of your own dinosaurs! Don’t have toy dinosaurs? Draw a few and cut them out! The most creative entry will win a piece of dinosaur coprolite. (Psst – don’t know what coprolite is? You should definitely look it up!) And don’t forget to stop by the library all month long to grab some dino coloring pages and check out the awesome dinosaur books & movies on display!

Baxter Memorial Library’s annual COOKIE WALK is approaching, and helping out couldn’t be easier!  Simply bake up a batch of your favorite cookies and bring them to the library Thursday, December 9 (2-6pm) or Friday, December 10 (4-5:30pm).  (Just make sure they’re in an air-tight container.)  Or, you can drop them off on Saturday morning between 8:00 and 9:30 before the sale.  Not a baker?  Stop by Baxter Memorial Library on Saturday, December 11th, 10:00am-1:00pm and see for yourself how scrumptious helping out your local library can be! We’ll also be drawing for the gorgeous quilt donated by Eileen Lanza, so hurry and purchase your raffle tickets! Tickets are available at the library – $1 each or 6 for $5.
