Find Your Next Selfie @ your library!

Many say that a picture is worth a thousand words. A few may tell you a memoir is a #selfie in context. If you enjoy words from the source, please stop by our #Selfie book display and discover a memoir to take home. Even better, pose with one of your favorite memoirs and send a pic to us on our Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram (@harriscountypl) using:

  #SelfieBook -OR- #Memoir

Join Us for Freeman Nonfiction Book Club Next Monday!

Adults - Our 1st Meeting of the Freeman Nonfiction Book Club is Monday, 10/24 @ 7 PM in the upstairs Conference Room.

Great Books Discussion Group Talks about Gulf Coast Reads Book This Thursday!

Gulf Coast Reads (GCR): On the Same Page is an annual regional reading initiative focused on promoting the simultaneous reading or listening to a selected title by those living along the upper Texas Gulf Coast.*

This year's pick, Jan Jarboe Russell's The Train to Crystal City, describes "the dramatic and never-before-told story of a secret FDR approved American internment camp in Texas during World War II, where thousands of families -- many US citizens -- were incarcerated."

Desktop CNC Orientation in November

Thanks to the generosity of the Friends of Freeman, the Innovation Lab was able to purchase a Nomad 883 desktop CNC from Carbide 3D this summer.  This desktop CNC is a 3D 'carving' tool (essentially a small end-mill) that patrons will be able to use to create objects from wood, plastics and some metals.  Orientation sessions on the use of this tool will be scheduled in the month of November.  After orientation, patrons will be able to make a reservation on the machine in much the same way as the 3D printers or laser cutter/engraver.  Stay tuned for a listing of select dates for these orientation sessions, which will soon be posted on our Events Calendar.  Thanks again to the Friends of Freeman for their support of the Jocelyn H. Lee Innovation Lab!
