Thanks to the generous donations of our community, we are able to offer a variety of materials such as hardback and paperback books, magazines, movies, and CDs. The Friends’ book sale is on the last Saturday of the month. Show your support two ways: donate things for the book sale or buy things from the book sale. Either way, we win!

Reading Pays Off

Cynthia Sanders' love of reading paid off this week. 

The Houston resident who spends a lot of Saturdays at Parker Williams Branch Library won a $50 Amazon gift card in a drawing for adults who read four or more books during the summer reading program, Reader Nation. One lucky winner was chosen from each branch in the Harris County Public Library system.Cynthia's love of reading paid off.

"I come in here every Saturday. I just like reading," Sanders says. "It's a pleasure. It's quiet and I can spend hours (in the library)."
