The Fabulous '50s

Malt StationThis past week the staff at the Barbara Bush Branch Library hosted a luncheon for its volunteers. Like every year, the luncheon had a theme and this year's celebrated The '50s. The outfits, music, and cuisine (Chocolate malts, anyone?) all represented that fabulous decade. You can checkout some pictures on Flickr.

The luncheon is held to thank our volunteers for the tremendous work they do for this library and the community. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, then learn more here.
