Coming Soon to a Library Near You: Patron Count Week

Just a reminder that October 17-22nd is Patron Count Week here at Katherine Tyra @ Bear Creek Library!  We are still in urgent need of many volunteers to help us tackle the week.  The job for volunteers is easy.  We need a volunteer to sit at a table in our lobby every hour the library is open to the public to count each man, woman, and child who enters!  You can read a book or magazine or even play with your mobile devices like an iPod while volunteering!  If you are interested, please go to the Information Desk or call 281-550-0885.

Patron Count Week

Patron Count Week is coming, and that means we need volunteers!  So what does that mean for you?


Patron Count Week is October 17-22, 2011.  We need a volunteer to sit at a table in our lobby every hour the library is open to the public to count each man, woman, and child who enters.  Sound like a big job?  It’s not!  Anyone who knows their numbers is welcome to help out.  In between counting, you can even catch up on the latest celebrity gossip with a magazine or keep your nose in your favorite book!
