Let's Celebrate Black History Month

Do you all know that we are celebrating the Black History Month? No? Ah! But now you do. So Barbara Bush Branch Library is presenting a program for adults at the Community Center across from the Library. But is it fair that only adults get to participate in the program? No sir! So do you know what we did? We planned a special performance for the younger ones. We have Ms. Kathy Culmer, a wonderful storyteller to come and do a storytime for us and then we’ll have crafts to make and I know for sure that ‘crafting’ never goes wrong.

Meet The Author: Bonnie Hopkins

Author Bonnie HopkinsIt’s time to meet our next author for the writers panelBonnie Hopkins.

Bonnie writes from a foundation of Christian principles, life experiences and observations.  Although fictional, her stories are centered in realistic, relevant, life issues that encourage, inspire and motivate readers to keep looking to Jesus.  Inherent in her stories is the message that when God closes a chapter in our lives, we can trust Him for a new beginning–because in God there is always a future and a hope.

In addition to writing, and the numerous tasks associated with a writing career, Bonnie is mentor, encourager and coach to aspiring writers. To date, Bonnie has authored three books:  Seasons, Now And Then, Again, and Destiny.
