Building Update!

Building update: Progress is being made. We have pallets of sheetrock waiting to be installed, and workman finishing the electrical work. I'm meeting with the architect about flooring, shelving and furniture. Still will take a while due to the damage done to the AC and the elevator, but it's coming along.

Another Pop up Library! this Saturday from 1 -5 pm

Our pop up libraries at Cherry Blossom Yoga Studio have been fun and successful. Last week we had 60 people get books and library cards, return books, and enjoy a kid's activity. Ms. Frizzle was there last week and everyone had fun. This week, we'll have more books! At 2:30, Ms. Amanda will be here with stories and a craft for the kids! So come enjoy our pop up  library at Cherry Blossom Yoga Studio, 16650 Champion Forest Drive. Thank you to Cherry Blossom for all their support! Tip: the studio is tucked into the corner of the shopping center between Fitness Connection and True Value Hardware.

Pen and Paintbrush Book Discussion Thursday Aug. 10 1:30 pm

From time to time, in partnership with The Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Arts, we present the Pen and Paintbrush Book Discussion. We read a book related to the current art exhibit at the museum. Then we gather to discuss the book and tour the exhibit. Our book this time is Stormy Weather by Paulette Jiles. The novel celebrates four strong women toughing out the Great Depression in the Texas dust bowl.  Be sure to get the book and start reading soon! It’s readily available in paperback or you can check out a copy at the library. Then join us for the discussion and tour on Thursday, Aug 10 at 1:30 pm in the Conference Room at the Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Arts. See you there!
