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.
