Texas Senator Dan Patrick visited Barbara Bush Branch on October 1 to tour the facility and discuss the value of libraries for the citizens of Texas. After his visit, the Senator sent an e-mail with this message, "I appreciate the great work you and your staff do for our community. You are part of the unsung heroes we have in district 7." Patrick is pictured in the center with Barbara Bush staff members Ellen Sanders and Dave Smith. The senator is holding his current favorite book, "Killing Lincoln" by Bill O'Reilly.
