The Words We Tell:Poetry Workshop

Autumn has been a symbol for some not-so-happy feelings and ideas in the world of poetry for quite some time. But this doesn’t have to be so! We’re in Texas after all, and autumn means this heat is subsiding!  Give this autumn a positive association: make it a productive season for your poetry!
Israel, our Circulation Assistant would like to help! Israel has his Degree in English-Creative writing from the University of Houston where his focus was poetry. He is putting together a monthly poetry workshop for adults starting September 11,2013 so that he can share some of his knowledge. Participants will share their poems and receive constructive criticism so as to improve not only their work, but their skills as poets and writers.
So come to Northwest Library and sign up! Share your poetry, listen to the work of your friend’s and neighbors, and have a good time!

Thank you! Kroger’s Community Rewards Program at Northwest Library

Kroger check at Northwest branch library

Northwest Library was recently presented with a check from Kroger’s Community Rewards Program. The Northwest Friends Of The Library, in conjunction with Kroger’s Community Rewards Program has earned over $2,500.00 for our library in the last year.

Thank you to all of our dedicated patrons who used their Kroger’s Plus Card to donate a portion of their Kroger's purchases to for the library.

Donations go to fund projects in our library like our camel ride, story times, furniture, and supplies for our library. So thank you all once again for helping the Northwest library. Your support and dedication enrich our community.  

Sitting pretty at Northwest Library

NW bench

Help us say a big Thank You to the Northwest Friends Of The Library for providing us with a new park bench for our library. Our NW Friends were kind enough to purchase a bench for us and the county's Support Services got it installed for us out front along the walkway by our tree. Now we have a place to sit in a shaded area outside the library!
