National Volunteer Week

April 23rd-29th is National Volunteer Week. Here at the Barbara Bush Library, we thrive because our volunteers are so dedicated. The staff at the Barbara Bush Library collaborated to create this fabulous display honoring all of the volunteers that are here on a regular basis. During your next visit to the library, be sure and check it out! It's located on the first floor near the elevator. 

We'd like to thank all of our volunteers, past and present, as well as our Friends of the Library for going above and beyond on a daily basis to make our library such a wonderful place for our community!

If you are interested in volunteering, here are a few ways you can help!

We Love Our Friends!

The staff at the Barbara Bush Library would like to take this opportunity to thank our Friends for all the support they provide whether it is funds, volunteer hours, or just being a friendly face. We get by with A LOT of help from our Friends! The next time you visit our library, be sure to stop by the Earl Elliott Meeting Room to see what our staff has written about the Barbara Bush Library Friends!
