Look Up to the Stars with a Purpose

Galaxy - Courtesy of Vital Imagery Ltd.The Barbara Bush Branch is very excited to host an intro to astronomy presentation on June 14 at 10:30 AM. We are lucky enough to have the North Houston Astronomy Club coming to share what beginners need to know about stargazing.

In addition to the presentation, you’ll get a chance to do some daytime watching with the club’s solar telescope. How cool is that? But wait! It gets better. One lucky adult will win a $20 gift card to a local bookstore. Now, how cool is that?

Let Us Explore Rockets!

Knowledge Exchange is on the Move

Ball of Yarn © 2014 Vital Imagery LtdFor years knitters and crocheters of all ages and experience levels have been meeting here at the library every Friday at 2:30 for Knowledge Exchange. Many brought their own projects to work on. Some were beginners and came to practice. Others would help make lap blankets for veterans and chemo caps for M.D. Anderson patients.

It has been a great time of learning and conversation. And now it is on the move. Starting June 6, Knowledge Exchange will no longer start a 2:30, but 12:30. So if you get a lunch-time hankerin' to get creative, then come by and visit!
