A Night at the Museum
Last night, I had the pleasure of attending Museum of Fine Arts, Houston's celebration of education and community partners. At this event, Harris County Public Library received A Place For All People Award. This distinction is awarded to community collaborators for longtime dedication to the arts and education. Over the years, the library has partnered with the museum for various programs. Several branches have hosted weeklong Summer Art Camps, taken free bus trips to the museum, as well as transformed library public spaces into temporary art galleries for traveling art exhibits. The benefits to our community extend beyond the library branch. Did you know your child can get into the museum free on Sundays just by showing his/her library card? Also, the museum hosts storytimes every Sunday at 1:30 PM. And the entire family can go for free on the first Sunday of each month. The MFAH even has a book club. Thank you MFAH for all you do for the citizens of Harris County and for the support you give to the Harris County Public Library System.
