This weekend we Americans celebrate the birth of our country. In fact, this is our 239th birthday. I remember the excitement of the Bicentennial in 1976 and hope to be around for the Sestercentennial in 2026. But, to tell the truth, I find every Independence Day to be exhilarating.
Don't forget, all of the Harris County Library branches will be closed this Thursday, July 4th for Independence Day. The library will resume normal hours on Friday, July 5th. But don't worry, you can always access your account or check out eBooks or eAudio online 24 hours a day, 365 days a year right here on the Harris County Library website. Have a safe holiday and we'll see you on the fifth!
