St. Patrick's Day Storytime

 

Yesterday morning at storytime, we made special St. Patrick's Day shamrock wands. Don't miss next week's storytime! We will sing songs, do fingerplays and read stories around the central theme of farms and farmers. The craft will be Old MacDonald's farm, which you can then take home and be able to sing along to with your children. Hope to see you there!

Production of the Model-T Ford Ends and the Stratford Library Begins

May 1927, the Highlands community gathered together 159 books and the Harris County librarian opened the library in Highlands as one of the first 16 libraries in the county. The first month, these 159 books circulated 328 times! Almost 83 years later this same library, now known as the Stratford Branch, owns around 26,000 items and the circulation was 4,518 times in the month of February. Come on into the library to see historical pictures of the history of the library in past years. Add to this history with stories you can remember when you were a child and visited the library.
