Come Meet our Peeps!

As #ProjectPeep continues here at the Barbara Bush Library, our duck egg hatched and joined our crew of chicks! His name is JJ Wattle and he's cute, fluffy, and just as fast as the one and only JJ Watt! 

Stop on by to see the chicks and JJ any time during our open hours. You can also view our livestreams by visiting the Harris County Public Library YouTube channel. Our peeps will be here for another week before heading back to the farm so stop on by before April 8th!
