We Love Our Friends!

The Barbara Bush Library is very lucky to have a very involved Friends of the Library group. Our Friends help us raise funds for programming and supplies, staff Al & Polly's Bookstore by volunteering, and help us continue to grow with and for our community. 

The staff at the Barbara Bush Library would like to take this opportunity to thank our Friends for all the support they provide whether it is funds, volunteer hours, or just being a friendly face. We get by with A LOT of help from our Friends! The next time you visit our library, be sure to stop by the Earl Elliott Meeting Room to see what our staff has written about the Barbara Bush Library Friends!

A Special Note from Margaret to You

It’s been my honor and privilege to serve customers at Harris County Public Library first at Aldine Branch (1976-1983) and then Cypress Creek Branch (1984-2001) and then Barbara Bush Branch (2002-2017).

Some of you have told me that I first helped you at Aldine Branch and some of you have already brought your kids to the library so I could help them find what they needed. Indeed, a longtime HCPL staffer recently told me I helped him at the Cypress Creek Branch back while he was still in high school!

The one constant these past 40 years has been my desire to help customers find the book they were looking for whether it be a current best seller, the next selection for their book club, the biography of the person they need to research for a school assignment, etc. etc. Or the information they needed to start a small business or to draw up their own divorce papers or to change careers, etc. etc.
