1. What are some of your duties as Assistant Branch Manager for Children's Services? My duties are to oversee a team of very talented Children's Librarians and together we plan and coordinate children's programs and services for the community. Part of of my duties are also to maintain and expand the children's collection.  We also serve the area schools and day cares and promote library services to them.

Barbara Bush closed April 20th

Good Morning everyone! I hope you are all staying safe and dry this week. As many of you know, we've been closed the past couple days due to high water in the area. While we think the library itself is okay, surrounding areas (ie parking lots/streets) are still under water and we have no way of getting into the building. We will be closed again today and I just wanted to pass some info along to all of our customers. I am sure our being closed is a major inconvenience to a lot of our customers and hopefully we will be back to normal soon. 

Here are some things to know while the Barbara Bush Library is closed:
