Words of Recognition

A customer sent me this the other day:

My public library, the Barbara Bush Branch of the Harris County library system,

is an indispensable source for students, parents, children and youth, and

readers like myself.  A public library keeps all of us in touch with our heritage

as a country, the enormous range of knowledge of human achievements and

the people who have made contributions to the world.  A community without

a library is blind and condemned to a life of ignorance.  

He wanted to remain anonymous so I won't put his name. But I thought it was so nice and so true!

   Saturday January 16th

Princeton Review will provide an overview of how financial aid works. Don't allow the lengthy financial aid forms and confusing jargon keep your family from taking advantage of every potential source of money. You will come away knowing what you need to do, and when you need to do it, to take complete control of the process. Call 281-376-4610 for more information or go to www.hcpl.net to register.

The Tuesday evening book club will discuss the History of the World in 100 objects by Neil MacGregor on January 12th @ 7:00pm

Persons who love to read and discuss what they have read join in informal conversation. Everyone is welcome. This month’s book will be  History of the World in 100 objects by Neil MacGregor. 


From the renowned director of the British Museum, a kaleidoscopic history of humanity told through things we have made.

When did people first start to wear jewelry or play music? When were cows domesticated and why do we feed their milk to our children? Where were the first cities and what made them succeed? Who invented math-or came up with money?
