Announcing the Valentine Book Winners!

Meet Natalie Youngberg and her son, Milan Youngberg. Two separate drawings to find winners for our gift-wrapped Valentine's books pulled this mother and son from the bunch. Natalie was excited when she received a phone call informing her that her son had won the children's Secret Valentine drawing for a book tote bag.

Sunday Hours At Harris County Public Library

Due to the economic issues facing Harris County, a hiring freeze is in effect for all departments of Harris County government. The 15% vacancy rate that Harris County Public Library is now experiencing has necessitated a further decrease in library hours. After November 21, 2010 five Harris County branch libraries that have been open on Sundays-Atascocita Branch, Barbara Bush Branch, Clear Lake City County Freeman Branch, Katherine Tyra Branch and North Channel Branch- will no longer be open on Sundays. The Lone Star College-CyFair Branch, which is a partnership between Harris County Public Library and Lone Star College-CyFair will remain open on Sundays from 1:00 PM -6:00 PM.
