Santa's Comin' To Town!

It's the best part of the year. It's Holidays time. Are you ready for the winter break? Do you make some cool things? If you say yes then I have a perfect thing for you.

And a Good Time Was Had by All

The music was wonderful. The food was great! And the kids all enjoyed doing crafts and visiting with Santa and Mrs. Claus. We gave away coffee mugs and bookmarks. Everyone had a great time! Thanks go out to our staff, volunteers, and the Friends of the Barbara Bush Library for their hard work. Special thanks to H.E.B., Rockfish Seafood Grill, Kroger's, and Bullritios for all the food donations. If you didn't get to come, you missed out! Hope you can join us next year!

A Christmas Surprise!

Shhh…the elves will creep in during the Thanksgiving holiday. At least we think that’s what happens. All we know is that every year, while we’re all celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday and eating lots of food, our library is magically transformed.  When we open on Monday, Dec. 1st, there will be several Christmas trees and lots of decorations. So come by and enjoy the Christmas cheer. You may even see an elf!
