On Friday, February 12th, Master Gardener Herman Auer talked about optimal gardening in the Houston area. After his
presentation, Mr. Auer answered numerous questions from the audience.

This Friday, February 19th, we anticipate seeing Dr. Richard Sparks, D.D.S and Dental Hygienist Tiffany Sparks. They will speak on "Adult Dental Health: From Basic Prevention To Cosmetic Dentistry." Coffee and snacks are provided by the Friends of Freeman Library.

Adults of all ages are welcome to join us.

Romance in the Library

I am excited to announce that Freeman now has a romance section on the 2nd floor!  After many requests from our romance fans (of which I am one!) we have finally been able to set aside some space to highlight our romance authors.  If you have trouble finding it, please don't be afraid to ask us at the reference desk - we'll be happy to point it out to you. 

This Week in Storytime...

Mardi Gras beadsCelebrate Mardi Gras! This week in our Toddler Time and Preschool Storytimes, we will be singing songs in celebration of the classic New Orleans festival! Along with the songs, the kids will make their own Mardi Gras hat using the traditional Mardi Gras colors of green, gold, and purple. And, just in case you can't make it, here are a sampling of the books we are reading this week:
