Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and High Meadows Branch Library has put together a display to honor the fight against the disease. Breast cancer touches nearly every one of us in some way. Most of us know someone; whether it is an aunt, mother, cousin, or friend, who has battled breast cancer.
Our display includes:
• Books that about survivors and question about breast cancer from your leading experts.
• Pamphlets about: Breast cancer in Young Women, What You Need to Know and organizations for survivors.
• Ribbon cards to celebrate survivors, those who have died and those who are still fighting. (Write a name/memory of someone you know who has breast cancer. They will be placed around the display.)

Baldwin Boettcher Library’s Last Day at Lone Star Was Sept 28

Starting as far back as the end of September 2017, Baldwin Boettcher Library has had a place to call home at Lone Star College North Harris.  The college graciously provided an area for us to be stationed, enabling us to have a place for our patrons to pick up holds and return books after being flooded out during Harvey.   Lone Star’s continued support and help has been a blessing to the entire Baldwin Boettcher staff and our wonderful patrons.  Sadly our last day stationed there was Friday, Sept 28th.  It has been a wonderful experience getting to know the awesome staff at Lone Star North Harris, and I believe it is an inter-library relationship that will thrive for years to come.
