A New Look for Barbara Bush Branch Library!

We  had some problems with our trees along the front entrance. First they were overgrown and needed trimming. Then they got trimmed, but not properly. Harris County Facilities came out and planted new trees and added much needed mulch. We’re looking much better now!

A Wonderful Work of Art!

Barbara Bush Branch Library received a wonderful donation recently. Local artist Harrison Nobles donated his work "Seasons." It is proudly on display on the 2nd floor near the study rooms. Here's Mr. Nobles' description of his work.

"Seasons" is paint, coffee grounds, and stir sticks on panel. I cannot throw away a stir stick when I exit a coffee house. It is perfectly good wood that has been swirled around in a new coffee that no lips have touched. I hope people "get" the sweat or condensation dripping in the summer portion. The painting got the biggest compliment when a lady said " I want to remove everything from my living room and decorate around this piece " Unfortunately she didn't have the money and she gave her blessing for me to give it to the library. She will get one of my paintings later."

Thank you Mr. Nobles for sharing your art with our library community!
