SUMMER READING CLUB -- BRANCH WINNER

Barbara Bush Branch WinnerMonika Anderson -- Winner of the $50 Branch Gift Card

For three of those years, she taught third-graders and brought her class to visit the library during the Klein ISD Art Day field trips.

3rd Grand Prize Winner -- Adult Summer Reading Program

Third Grand Prize WinnerBobbie Lupa -- Winner of a $100 Gift Card

She looks forward to spending her $100 on books to...

An Invitation: To Read outside [your personal] box!

Summer is almost upon us and so are our summer reading programs. We, in the Adult department will be challenging our readers to s-t-r-e-t-c-h yourselves with your summer reading this year. Whatever your favorite kinds of books, be they Inspirational, Thrillers, Science Fiction, or Mysteries, we're encouraging you to try something else! We'll be putting up bookmarks with some ideas for you--look for them in the Fiction department and upstairs in Non-Fiction.

And remember that we're happy to request anything you don't see on the shelf, either from another branch or via interlibrary loan from across the country.
