Holiday Fun (and Solutions to Common Holiday Conundrums) @ Your Library

At Harris County Public Library, you can immerse yourself in holiday cheer if you so desire. Branches will be hosting parties, musical performances, puppet shows, family movies, special seasonal storytimes, crafts for all ages and more. But you can also escape the hustle and bustle of the season with a good book or favorite magazine in a comfortable chair. In fact, HCPL offers solutions to many common holiday conundrums:

Book Hunters in Brief #78: Juneteenth

I would guess that over the years I have driven or been driven past the big pink brick house with the wrought iron balcony that sits at 24th and Broadway in Galveston nearly a thousand times, and If I ever knew that on a muggy day in June 1865 a Union General had stepped out on that balcony and by reading a terse snatch of text with the very prosaic title, "General Order No. 3" freed the slaves of Texas, I have long since forgotten it.

Book Hunters in Brief #57: Celebrate the Life and Works of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

January 19 is the day set aside to honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We celebrate him, in part, because he was one of those rarest of individuals: a courageous man of action who knew that, in the end, the power of his words was his best weapon against injustice. Those words did the near impossible; they spurred others to action--action, it must be remembered, that entailed great personal risk for those who chose to undertake it. Such was the power of his gifts that he gave others courage and resolve they might otherwise have lacked. And his words, nearly 50 years after his assassination, still have the power to change the world. What better way to celebrate Dr. King's life and works than to read those words. Below are several suggestions from Book Hunters.
