Birthday Book Club - Honor Your Son on His Birthday

The PDS Birthday Book Club has served for more than twenty years as a way to honor your son on his birthday. It has strengthened our library tremendously. Thousands of books have been added to the library because of this wonderful program.

Boys enrolled in the club are given the opportunity to be the first to check out the new books chosen in their names. Shown in the front of the book is a special plate with the boy’s name and birthday. If you would like to place a book in the library in honor or memory of someone, it can be handled on this form, as well. This is a great way to remember teachers at Christmas or at the end of the year.

We request a minimum donation of $15.00 that should be paid in advance. Please fill out the form below and return it to the PDS Library with a check made payable to the PDS Birthday Book Club. Since this is a contribution, your gift is tax-deductible. For more information, contact Brooke Clement at 842-4641.

Spooky Nights at Shelby Farms Park

Every Friday and Saturday night throughout the month of October, Shelby Farms Park will host Spooky Nights; a celebration of Halloween featuring a Haunted Nature Trail, Headless Horseman hayrides, Zombie Laser Tag, and a Nocturnal Nature Hike. Most events are fine for all ages, and proceeds support the Shelby Farms Park Conservancy. Events are available from 7 to 10 p.m. Click here for more information.

The Memphis Zoo

Memphis is extraordinarily blessed to have one of the very best zoos in the country, where there are always things to do and see. As the weather cools, many of the animals get more active, so fall break is a perfect time to go and spend time at the zoo. There are chats with zookeepers, animal feedings and live shows scheduled daily. The zoo also hosts a “SPOOK-tacular Halloween Event,” Zoo Boo. Zoo Boo is a family friendly event hosted from 5:30- 9:30 on weekends in October beginning October 16th. Highlights include haunted hay rides, magic shows, free kiddie rides, and much more. Advance tickets cost $10 for members and $13 for non-members. Click here for more information.

Children’s Museum of Memphis

The Children’s Museum of Memphis (CMOM) houses more than 20 hands-on exhibits and offers interactive and educational programs for children and their families. CMOM has a newly expanded toddler area exclusively for children 4 and under. The museum is open seven days a week from 9 am to 5 pm.

Seussical Jr. at The Kroc Center

Stage Door Productions brings our favorite Dr. Seuss characters to life in Seussical Jr. This show is running now through October 11th. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children, college students, seniors, and military. Arrive early for thematic crafts offered in the lobby before the performance.

After a long day of going, going, going, sometimes it is all you can do to get a semi-nutritious meal on the table. Let alone, spend large amounts of time with each of your children, walk the dog, water the plants, and tend to the mail. If you are short on time, follow these easy steps to maximize the quality of time spent as a family.

Seven Simple Back-to-School Tips

Back to school means new classrooms, new teachers, new friends, and new school supplies. It also means earlier wake-up times and homework. Try following these tips to make the transition back to school a smooth and seamless one.
