Author Visit - Gary L. Stewart

On Thursday, August 28th, at 7:00 PM, the library will be pleased to host national bestselling author Gary L. Stewart.  Mr. Stewart is the author of "The Most Dangerous Animal of All," published early this year.  Mr. Stewart's book, written along with Susan Mustafa, chronicles his decade-long search for his birth parents, which led him to a chilling conclusion about his father and potential connection with the Zodiac Killer.  

This event is sponsored by the Friends of Freeman Library.  Schroeder's Book Haven, in League City, will provide copies of Mr. Stewart's book for sale.  

Find out what geocaching is, and then find your first one!

You can find geocaches all over – in your neighborhood, at a park or on a road trip.  It can consist of a logbook only, or you may find a treasure inside (you can take one, but be sure to leave one too in that case).  All you need is a gps device such as on a phone.  Learn how to get started and see if you can find a geocache in or near the library!  Join us on Thursday, August 1
