Author Book Signing!

On Saturday, September 26, 2009, the Friends of the Octavia Fields Library are happy to sponsor a pre-market sale and signing of the book, The Best for Last : One Woman's Unusual Tale of Life and Love by Paulette Meeks, a local author.  Ms. Meeks was a teacher for over 43 years, and also served for 28 years as a Daughter of Charity, doing missionary work. Her last 4 years of teaching were at Lakeland Elementary School  in Humble.  The sale and signing will be from 3 - 4 pm, in the main library.

It Pays to Recycle!

It Pays to Recycle! The Octavia Fields Branch Library has a paper recycling bin, located in the side parking lot. When we regularly fill it up with our unwanted paper products two things happen; the environment benefits and the Friends of the Library receive money for children’s programs. Bringing your paper recycling when you visit the library will also save you time and gas.
The following items can be placed in the bin:
• Newspapers
• Magazines
• Mail
• School and office papers
• Catalogs
• Paperback books
• Hardcover books with covers removed

Going Green at Octavia Fields

Octavia Fields has got it all “in the bag”!  The friends of the Library have great book bags for sale. The money raised from the sale of the bags will support children's programing.   They come in a variety of colors: red, green, and royal blue. They can be purchased at the circulation desk for $3.00. What a great way to support your local Library and go green.
