May the fourth be with you

Today is May the 4th and that means National Star Wars Day! There’s no wrong way to celebrate #NationalStarWarsDay. Go have a Star Wars marathon or host your own Star Wars party. Come check out our selection of Star Wars movies and books. May be you could make a cool Star Wars craft. Show us what you end up doing!

Don’t forget to check out the El Paso Zoo and their Star Wars event. It runs on May 4th from 6pm to 10pm. Call (915) 212-0966 for more info.


Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Today is Dr. Seuss’s birthday! We hope that you pick up your favorite book (doesn’t have to be by Dr. Seuss) and read. That’s what Read Across America is all about: Promoting literacy! Make Dr. Seuss proud and get out there and read! Our little patrons had a blast making Dr. Seuss themed crafts. We hope that you join us for next year’s Read Across America! #ReadAcrossAmericaDay #Dr.SeussDay

Did you know that today is National Ugly Christmas Sweater day? We’re wearing our ugliest sweaters today. If you’d like to join in the fun but don’t know where to start, here are some tips:

  • Any animals or cartoon character with a holiday theme is a good focal point.
  • Use clashing colors. The gaudier, the better!
  • Add tinsel, garland, lights, sequins, glitter, bells.

If you wear an ugly christmas sweater this holiday season and post it on social media, use #ChristmasSweaterDay to show off your creation.
