HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE!

   Children, adults and families are invited to join us this Saturday, December 3rd from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm on the first floor of the Library to celebrate the holidays library style! Enjoy music, refreshments, crafts, a Friends of the Library book sale (the perfect opportunity to pick up a book for the reader on your list!) and a visit from Santa!  

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.

Support Your Library

Our funding comes from the state as well as the county, so if you’ve been well served by the library in the past year, please tell your state representatives. They need to hear from you so they can advocate for library services as they go into budget sessions.

To find out who represents you, use the QR code to the left or  click on this link: http://www.house.state.tx.us/members/find-your-representative/ and put in your residential address.

If you like, here is a link to a sample letter provided by the Texas Library Association: http://www.hcpl.net/sites/default/files/Legislative Sample Letter.pdf

A big thanks from us.

Chill at the library

After you've voted today, if you need a comfortable quiet place to get away from the election madness, come to the library!  We have coffee and soda and snacks. Curl up with a good book, listen to your iPod, play on one of our free computers, put your feet up, absorb the good qi; breathe. We're open until 9:30. The election won't be decided before then. Come and hide out, hang out, chill, take a break.

Books! Books! Books For Sale!

 

Are you tired of spending a bundle on books at the bookstore and want a good read for a great price? Well, look no more. Mark your calenders for Saturday August 25th at 10am in the Northwest library meeting room, where Friends of the Library will be hosting their wonderful book sale just for you! Find great picks on movies, music, magazines, special items, and of course, who can forget the books. Purchases you make will be used to support the library and all programs we have during the year. Isn't it great, you buy great books at a bargain price and at the same time you are helping to support your public library. Sale ends at 4pm so add this event to your to do list so you don't miss out. See you there!
