Grand Prize Winner of Adult SRP is a Barbara Bush Customer

Laura Shaver (right), a Barbara Bush Library customer, is the happy owner of a Kindle Fire HD as the grand prize winnLaura Shaver, Winner of a Grand Prize in the Adult SRP 2013er in the 2013 Adult Summer Reading Club. Laura loves to read, and she encouraged her granddaughter to follow in her footsteps when they both entered the Summer Reading Club together. Over the summer she read lots of books to her granddaughter, read the Bible, and also read some novels like "House of Sand and Fog" by Andre Dubus III. Laura is disabled and can't get out everywhere she would like to go, so she found the theme of this year's SRP very appropriate -- "Have, Book, Will Travel." Laura believes that "If you read you can do anything, and you can escape to anywhere." When she can, Laura enjoys bringing her granddaughter to story time and shopping in Al and Polly's Bookstore in the library.

The NW Houston Photo Club Comes to the Barbara Bush Branch

Photographs On A Wall
We have a new display for you to enjoy in our art alcove this month. It is a collection from the NW Houston Photo Club and it is impressive. Fortunately our picture here doesn’t do the display justice, so you will just have to come to the second floor and see it for yourselves. Want to visit more of their work? Well you’re in luck because the group also has an exhibit at the Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Arts right next door. Hitting up a library and a museum in one day--your friends will be so impressed!
