A Note from Akhila to You

With mixed emotions I want to share that I have been promoted as the Branch Manager at Maud Marks Library.  I’m really excited about the next chapter in my career and look forward to this new challenge.  At the same time I’m saddened to leave the Barbara Bush Library, staff, and the wonderful community who has given me so much love and support over the past 10 years.

I hope my contributions have made a positive impact on the families and community of the Library.  I’m confident the wonderful staff at Barbara Bush will continue the vision and values which I have striven for during my tenure.

I’m grateful for all the friendships and relationships I’ve developed at the Barbara Bush library.  I will cherish this for the rest of my career.

No, it’s not a traditional bookmobile. So if you need regular books, we won’t have them. But if you want ebooks, come to the Barbara Bush Branch Library parking lot on Tuesday, March 27 from 3 pm to 7 pm. The Overdrive Digital Bookmobile will help you get started with ebooks. Come aboard the 42-foot-long Overdrive Digital Bookmobile to learn how to borrow an eBook or audiobook and so much more! Experts will be available to teach beginners and show experienced users the latest features. If you are having problems, they can troubleshoot also! Be sure to bring your device as they will have Wi-Fi on the Digital Bookmobile. We’ll also have snacks and giveaways! Hope to see you there!
