A special thanks

Thanks to all of you who braved the cold last Saturday to participate in our Friends of the Library Birthday Bargains book sale. We appreciate everyone who donated gently used books to the Friends, either to add to our collection or to sell to raise funds for library programming. We also appreciate our Friends and staff who put in hours of work preparing for the sale. And especially we are deeply grateful to all of you who bought books. We hope you enjoy them! Please come back on Saturday, January 31st and celebrate our tenth anniversary.

Thank You For Being a Friend

This week (October 19 – 25) is the ninth annual celebration of National Friends of Libraries Week. The Harris County Friends of the Library would like to thank all of the branch library Friends groups for their contributions of time and expertise to significantly enhance the services our library system offers. Raising funds to purchase materials to supplement the library's collection, buying special equipment and supplies, and funding special programs for all ages are just a few of the ways you support our libraries.

Libraries are the cornerstones of their communities providing opportunities for everyone to engage in the joy of life-long learning and connect with the thoughts and ideas of others from ages past to the present. We thank the Friends groups across the county for all they do to make our libraries and communities so much better.

THANK YOU!

Susan Greer
President
