The Tuesday Evening Book Club will discuss Demian : The Story of Emil Sinclair’s youth, by Hermann Hesse on June 14th @ 7:00pm

Persons who love to read and discuss what they have read join in informal conversation. Everyone is welcome. The June selection will be Demian : The story of Emil Sinclair’s youth, Hermann Hesse



In Demian, one of the great writers of the twentieth century tells the dramatic story of young, docile Emil Sinclair's descent--led by precocious schoolmate Max Demian- -into a secret and dangerous world of petty crime and revolt against convention and eventual awakening to selfhood.

Meet the Staff: Akhila

Hey folks! This month, I'd like to introduce Akhila to y'all! Akhila is the Assistant Branch Manager for Children's Services here at the Barbara Bush Library. Let's get to know Akhila shall we? 

1. What are some of your duties as Assistant Branch Manager for Children's Services? My duties are to oversee a team of very talented Children's Librarians and together we plan and coordinate children's programs and services for the community. Part of of my duties are also to maintain and expand the children's collection.  We also serve the area schools and day cares and promote library services to them.

Thank you to our Friends!

The Friends of the Barbara Bush Library do so much for us! Thanks to their fundraising efforts, we're able to buy more books and offer better programs. Recently, they did two wonderful things. They donated $14,000 to the library system to buy more e-books, and they paid to have our Teen area repainted. Take a look! (If you're not a member of the Friends of the Library, do ask us about joining. The membership dues are reasonable and the money goes to help the library.)

We're back!

We're happy to report that our computer systems are back up and running. Our fiber optic cable had gotten damaged. So things are back to normal! What a relief!
