Baldwin Boettcher: Popping up in the Community in January!

Ricky and Lucy-BB BirdsHello all. We have dearly missed each of you who made our library such a special place. We know it has been a dreadfully long time since we lost our local library, but fear not! We are popping up in the community starting in late January! Beginning January 22 through May 21st (except for March 12th, 19th, and April 2nd) a few familiar faces will be heading to Cypress Trails United Methodist Church with as many books as we can carry. Unfortunately, it will be a miniature collection since our arms are not that large, but we will be doing our best to bring material you'll love as well as a big smile as we anticipate your arrival!  Cypress Trails UMC is located at 22801 Aldine Westfield Rd.

Ricky and Lucy Update

A lot has happened over the last few months, and we thought it would be nice to give you all an update on how Ricky and Lucy are doing.  First of all, they are doing good.  They survived the stress of Harvey and have been on a journey since then staying with beloved staff as a temporary home until we re-open.  They are adjusting well and look healthy and happy.  Birds seem to be like children; they are resilient and make it through tough times with laughter and smiles, or should one say happy chirping.   We will continue to keep you updated on the birds, and post a picture of them now and then.  We love Ricky and Lucy, and we know you do to!
