Baldwin Boettcher Library’s Last Day at Lone Star Was Sept 28

Starting as far back as the end of September 2017, Baldwin Boettcher Library has had a place to call home at Lone Star College North Harris.  The college graciously provided an area for us to be stationed, enabling us to have a place for our patrons to pick up holds and return books after being flooded out during Harvey.   Lone Star’s continued support and help has been a blessing to the entire Baldwin Boettcher staff and our wonderful patrons.  Sadly our last day stationed there was Friday, Sept 28th.  It has been a wonderful experience getting to know the awesome staff at Lone Star North Harris, and I believe it is an inter-library relationship that will thrive for years to come.
