The Countdown Begins - One Week to Go!

One week until the Grand Opening.  We're down to the connecting and testing of the PCs.  We're shifting and refining the collections.  We're moving furniture here, there and back to here again.  It's just like moving into a new house, only about 10 times larger, with a really out of proportion office, and no kitchen.  With company coming in one week when we open on April 19th at 10 AM.  We can’t wait to see all the familiar faces and meet many more. Come join us for the celebration!

Throw in the library staff helping move supplies and loading the books from carts to the shelves and the furniture installers starting right in with install almost before the trucks were unloaded and I believe it went from beginning chaos to a full-blown whirl-wind of activity.
 
Thursday, March 18. Looking at yesterday after a good night’s sleep I can see that we had the very good fortune of excellent workmen and library staff. All waited their turn patiently for elevator rides to move their furniture or books; everyone helped each other, no matter which crew they belonged to or which job...

Garden Beauty at the Library!

Kingwood Branch Library has been blessed with angels – the Kingwood Garden Club plants and maintains the gardens in front of the library and has for years now. Beautiful gardens beckon all those who enter the library and entice customers to check out garden books so they may duplicate the lovely scenery at their homes. We have many garden books that are perfect for Kingwood gardeners including Howard Garrett’s Plants for Houston and the Gulf Coast Area, Sally Wasowski’s
