Early Days of Harris County Library History

We had a display in February 2010 about the early days of Harris County Public Library.  There were pictures from the early days in the display case near the check-out desk.  Photographs were thanks to the Harris County Archives.

Harris County Library History

Archives exhibitThe Harris County Archivist has gone through numerous old photos, newspaper clippings, etc., and put together a display of the history of the Harris County Public Libraries from 1921-1939.  Please stop by and check out the display in the Fairbanks Branch.  It includes a narrative of the history of the library system during that period and many pictures, including some of the Fairbanks Library in 1930 and some amazing old bookmobiles.
