Just in case you’re thinking about doing some online shopping in the next several weeks, and you know someone who loves to read and loves their local public libraries, I know a web site you should check out. The Harris County Friends of the Library  operate http://www.zazzle.com/harriscountypl  as a part of their ongoing effort to raise money to help pay for Harris County Public Library materials and programs. They have a very nice selection of HPCL-related or reading-related tee shirts, mugs, tote bags, iPad cases, and mousepads and a baby shirt and a bumper sticker. Please consider looking here for gifts for your family, your friends or yourself. You can get something nice and support your favorite library system at the same time.
