Popping Up Monday

We are happy to announce that we will be having our “Pop up” Library this coming Monday, January 22 from 3:30 to 6 pm at the Cypress Trails United Methodist Church.  The church is located at 22801 Aldine Westfield Rd.  Spring, TX 77373 right across from the St. James Catholic Church.  We will have books for check out and some other wonderful things in store for you.  Afterwards there will be an ESL class with Cindy Groover from 6 to 7:30 pm.  So come join us!  We have missed you all, and we would love to see you there!

What’s New for the New Year

It is that time again; the beginning of a new year and a time to start fresh and begin new things.  The year behind us was full of many changes some wonderful and others not so wonderful, but we survived.  We lost a lot this last year, but we have a lot to look forward to in the year ahead and we are full of hope.  Here are some new things that we will have going on in 2018.   As Victoria so eloquently told you in an earlier post, we will be having a Pop Up Library every Monday from 3:30 pm to 6 pm starting on the 22nd of this month.  Directly after this, our beloved Cindy Groover will be teaching ESL again from 6 pm to 7:30 pm.  It will be a basic level class.  All of this will be held at the Cypress Trails United Methodist Church.  AARP will still be helping with taxes this year, but they will be at The St.

A Program Break for the Holidays

Due to the Lone Star College - North Harris Holiday hours, Spin-A-Yarn and Word Crafters will be on a little break for 2 to 3 weeks.  We wish everyone a wonderful Holiday break with their families!

Ricky and Lucy Update

A lot has happened over the last few months, and we thought it would be nice to give you all an update on how Ricky and Lucy are doing.  First of all, they are doing good.  They survived the stress of Harvey and have been on a journey since then staying with beloved staff as a temporary home until we re-open.  They are adjusting well and look healthy and happy.  Birds seem to be like children; they are resilient and make it through tough times with laughter and smiles, or should one say happy chirping.   We will continue to keep you updated on the birds, and post a picture of them now and then.  We love Ricky and Lucy, and we know you do to!
