IT'S WORTH IT

Do you remember when you were younger, you would hear the older people say and even parents tell you to always say “Yes, Ma’am, “No Ma’am”  “Yes Sir and No Sir”. This was their way of saying” be kind”.
 Northwest Branch is having an act of kindness day on October 22, 2012. All we ask is for the patrons to say thank you to the staff and the staff say’s thank you in return. Each individual may be surprised how this little act can spark a smile on someone’s face or make their day just a little brighter; gratitude goes a big way.
 

 

Participate with Friends Of The Library

Hello patrons it is such a reward having you participate in the Kroger reward program. For the past two years, you all have scanned your Kroger Cards and the Friends of Northwest Branch Library have received a profit from this program. We are doing it again this year. However, Kroger is asking us to do it online. In the library we have the instructions available. If you need help in doing this, come by the library on September 28th, 2013. We will be glad to help and bring your Kroger card. Thanks again in supporting the FRIENDS OF NORTHWEST BRANCH.

Checking with Intent

 In observance of Hispanic Heritage, Northwest Branch Library is having a trivia give away. This trivia involves pertinent information on Hispanic Heritage. The patron who answers all the questions correct, their name will go into a drawing. We will draw from this pile and we will give away the prizes. Adults get on board and pick up your questionnaire at the customer service desk. Let’s get in the mood to celebrate! The drawing will take place on October 15th. The questionnaire must be returned by October 12th. If you need more information contact Gwendolyn @ 281-890-2665.

 

History Mystery Dock
