Travel Back to Cypress 100 Years

Cypress "business district" in 1907

If you think the Cypress area is busy now, then you should have seen it a hundred years ago! The Cypress Historical Society will do just that with its informative and entertaining presentation on the area way back when.

Come and be surprised by all that has changed. Be even more surprised by what hasn't changed. The program is on Saturday, October 31, at 1:00 PM. We'll be done well before your trick-or-treating kicks off.

This presentation is in conjunction with this year's Gulf Coast Reads selection, The Promise, by Ann Weisgarber.

Shining a Light on the Library

Customers Shoping for BooksThis past Saturday the Friends of the Northwest Library held a book sale. The money made from book sales goes directly towards supporting the library. With those funds the community is able to enjoy additional materials for checkout or attend special programs. So you can imagine how worried everyone was to learn the building lost power the day of the sale!

Determined to carry on, the Friends held the sale, and the people came. Armed with phones and flashlights, shoppers searched for those special titles. In the end the Friends ended up with one of its most successful book sales in years. It just goes to show that you can't keep a book lover or library supporter down.

Check out the other pictures here.
