It's Time For Winners...

We promised a little plush giraffe and a baby hat at the end of Summer Reading Program, right? So here they are! Drum rolls please. And… the winner is Blake Ali for the Kids Summer Reading Program. Blake read and logged in more than seventy books. He was very cool about letting us take a picture of him and we are happy to share it with everyone.

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!
