In 2002, Annie Salinas and her sisters were the first kids to set foot in the children’s section at HCPL’s newly opened Barbara Bush Branch Library, and she credits frequent visits to the library for sparking her love of learning. That love has lead to awards for her research and design of historical exhibits including her 2008 National History Day exhibit on the San Sabá Mission that was shown at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery. She was recently presented with the Legacy Award for the Humanities by the Smithsonian and Creativity Foundation. Annie is currently a freshman at Texas A&M University.
Harris County Public Library would like to congratulate Annie on her achievements and send her our best wishes for a bright future.
