You may not all recognize his face but you know his work. This is Milton Holley, part of the Harris County Public Library delivery team. He's one of the folks that makes sure items from other branches get into the customer's hand when ordered. After 22 years of service to HCPL, Milton is retiring and everyone at Baldwin Boettcher would like to say congratulations!
Join us at Baldwin Boettcher this Wednesday, October 29, at 6 p.m., and enjoy some great traditions that started right here in the Lone Star State, including Frito pie, Dr Pepper, and Bluebell ice cream.
The Baldwin Boettcher Branch library was opened in 1986. The Library shares its site with the Mercer Arboretum and Botanical Gardens. The branch was named for Baldwin Boettcher, whose family donated the land upon which the branch stands. Mr. Boettcher was a prominent German settler in the Westfield/Spring area in the late 1800's.
The Friends of the Baldwin Boettcher Branch Library hold quarterly book sales in the library meeting room, as well sponsoring as an ongoing book sale in the library. They accept books and audiovisual materials in good condition for these sales. All money raised is used to support the branch library in materials purchasing and in programming.
