Spring Branch-Memorial Library--The Page Turners

Mr. Penumbra's 24-hour bookstoreTitle to be discussed: Mr. Penumbra's 24-hour bookstore by Robin Sloan.  Date of meeting: Tuesday, January 13, 6:30pm.  Summary: "A gleeful and exhilarating tale of global conspiracy, complex code-breaking, high-tech data visualization, young love, rollicking adventure, and the secret to eternal life—mostly set in a hole-in-the-wall San Francisco bookstore.  The Great Recession has shuffled Clay Jannon out of his life as a San Francisco Web-design drone—and serendipity, sheer curiosity, and the ability to climb a ladder like a monkey has landed him a new gig working the night shift at Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore. But after just a few days on the job, Clay begins to realize that this store is even more curious than the name suggests....  Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore is exactly what it sounds like: an establishment you have to enter and will never want to leave, a modern-day cabinet of wonders ready to give a jolt of energy to every curious listener, no matter the time of day."

The Grinch Visits Storytime

The Grinch who stole Christmas returns to the library Tuesday, December 23 at 10:15 am. Bring your camera and meet him at storytime. No need to fear...his heart has grown 3 sizes already. The babies and toddlers photo op will begin at 10:45 am. Sorry we cannot accommodate day care groups for this program.

Happy Holidays from the Evelyn Meador Staff!

Your Evelyn Meador staff would like to wish all a super happy holidays! Drive safe, and enjoy time with friends and family! Remember that we will be open the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th before closing for the 25th until the 29th. Stop by and see us, and warm up with a good book!

Romance is in the air!

Yes, romance is in the air!  We have moved the romance paperbacks to a new location and you are going to love it!

Now the paperback romance books are on an outside aisle.  The lighting is better and the books are easier to find.

We are in the process of pulling more of the romance paperbacks we did not have room for in this section so they will be easier to find.

Come check out the movement of our books and give us your comments.  We are always looking for ways to improve.

Staff Celebrate the End of the Year with Friends

Northwest Branch Holiday Tea-2015

Last week staff of the Northwest Branch Library were fortunate enough to sit down with the Friends of the Northwest Branch Library for a holiday tea. Everyone had a wonderful time catching up on all the activities the branch hosted the past year and getting geared up for what is to come in 2015.

The branch can't thank its Friends enough for everything they do. If you're looking for an opportunity to donate your talents and resources this coming year, then don't hesitate to contact the library for details about joining the Friends.

It Is Time For A Change!

 As this year winds down and a new bright and shiny one approaches, it is time to start thinking about a change.  Why not make it a point to try something new in 2015?  Why not try a new type of romance?  Do you usually only read romantic suspense or maybe only humorous romances?  I have just the right tool to help you branch out.  NoveList Plus.  This is a wonderful database

Thank you!!

We would like to say a really big “Thank You” to all the members of our Friends group.  You all have worked so hard to make this past year pretty great here at the library.  We appreciate your hard work and dedication to our community.
