Save Your Trees

The majestic trees that make our area so pleasant and distinctive had a rough summer last year. Thousands died in our terrible drought. The weather wizards are telling us to expect another dry summer this year. So we have invited Barry Ward, the executive director of Trees for Houston, to come to the library on Tuesday, March 20th, and tell us all how we can save and protect our trees this summer. The lecture, from 10-11 a.m., is free, and no registration is necessary. It'll be held in Room L-129. Please join us.

Tax Forms Online

While we still receive paper copies of tax forms from the Internal Revenue Service, we expect that this won't happen indefinitely. Charity Martin, one of our great reference assistants, will help you ease into finding and using the computerized version of tax forms this Tuesday, February 28 from 7-9 pm. in the Computer Lab L216. As with all our programs, it's free. 

On a completely different note, we send our congratulations and best wishes to our sister branch, the Barbara Bush at Cypress Creek branch, celebrating its 35 birthday this weekend.
