Bus Trip a Success

The Harris County Precinct 4 Bluebonnet bus trip through the Brenham area last Tuesday was a wonderful success. Not only was the bus full of happy Seniors, the bluebonnets, Indian paintbrush, poppies, sages, primroses, phloxes, and all those various yellow flowers turned out in magnificent numbers. Here’s advance notice that our next bus trip will take place on Thursday, May 21st, and will take folks over 50 up to Huntsville to tour the Texas Prison Museum. Stay posted; final plans and the registration form will be available soon. 

Oh, the Places You Will Go, When You Open a Book!

Have you ever wanted to  travel back in time?  Do you day dream of faraway places and wonder what it would be like? Just grab a book. Here are a few that I think you will enjoy.

Why Are Book Clubs So Important?

Book clubs have been important to women throughout history. Ever wonder why? Book clubs: women and the uses of reading in everyday life by Elizabeth Long takes a look at how book clubs have evolved. She focuses on an academic study of women's book groups in Houston which makes it especially interesting for us in Harris County. You can reach out to more readers for your groups using a table top sign offered by Ingram Library services.
