We Need Your Comments

The next time you come in to the Northwest library, please take a minute to fill out a comment card expressing your appreciation for the library. Whether it is about the friendly staff, or the wide range of services, please tell us what the library means to you. In mid February, we will present your collected comments before our state legislators in an urgent appeal for funding. Your words have the power to save our Texas libraries from devastating budget cuts that poised to take effect this spring.

New Self Checkout Machines

If you haven’t been to the Northwest library in the past week, we’ve made another exciting change to our system: new self checkout machines! The process on the new machines is a little different, but don’t fear, one of our friendly staff members will gladly guide you through the process. The best new features are the multidirectional scanners and receipt printing options. Come by the library, pick out a book and try it for yourself.
