Book Club Meets Friday October 21 @ 2 pm

It's Gulf Coast Reads month!  Crosby Book Club will meet on Friday, October 21 at 2 pm to discuss Jan Jarboe Russell's The Train to Crystal City.  This is the story of a World War II internment camp in Crystal City Texas, which housed Japanese, German, and Italian immigrants and their American born children.  Many of these prisoners were forced behind enemy lines in Germany and Japan as part of a government exchange program to rescue POWs.  The Train to Crystal City takes an unvarnished look at a little-known, disturbing chapter in American history.

Saturday Afternoon @ the Movies

As part of the annual Gulf Coast Reads initiative, Crosby Branch Library presents Into the Arms of Strangers-Stories of the Kindertransport.  This Academy Award-winning documentary chronicles the British rescue operation which saved 10,000 children from Hitler's genocide.  The film's power lies in vivid first-person accounts told by survivors, rescuers, parents, and foster parents.  Please join us in the Meeting Room for this special event on Saturday, October 15, at 2 pm.

Mary Risinger Retires

Crosby Branch Library announces the retirement of Library Technician Mary Risinger.  A dedicated public servant for over 20 years, she will be greatly missed by her co-workers and the community she served.  Congratulations and best wishes, Mary!
