We Have A New Friend At GP

Hey everybody! Come meet our new huggable, lovable friend Gene the Bear. Gene the Bear loves to read books, eat berries and honey, take extremely long naps, and chase butterflies when he is not napping. He enjoys picnics and helping people. One day, Gene the Bear decided he wanted to help his community but did not know how. He went to visit his friend Congressman Gene Green for advice. After a long conversation, they decided that the best way for Gene the Bear to help his community was to become a reading companion for children at the Galena Park Library...

Now, you can find Gene the bear in the children’s area encouraging little ones to read, or at baby time singing nursery rhymes with babies, or at Story time helping the librarian with finger plays. He has become an important member of the library. Thank you Congressman Gene Green for our cuddly reading companion.
