Thank you to our Friends!

The Friends of the Barbara Bush Library do so much for us! Thanks to their fundraising efforts, we're able to buy more books and offer better programs. Recently, they did two wonderful things. They donated $14,000 to the library system to buy more e-books, and they paid to have our Teen area repainted. Take a look! (If you're not a member of the Friends of the Library, do ask us about joining. The membership dues are reasonable and the money goes to help the library.)

We're back!

We're happy to report that our computer systems are back up and running. Our fiber optic cable had gotten damaged. So things are back to normal! What a relief!

Words of Recognition

A customer sent me this the other day:

My public library, the Barbara Bush Branch of the Harris County library system,

is an indispensable source for students, parents, children and youth, and

readers like myself.  A public library keeps all of us in touch with our heritage

as a country, the enormous range of knowledge of human achievements and

the people who have made contributions to the world.  A community without

a library is blind and condemned to a life of ignorance.  
 

He wanted to remain anonymous so I won't put his name. But I thought it was so nice and so true!
