IT'S WORTH IT

Do you remember when you were younger, you would hear the older people say and even parents tell you to always say “Yes, Ma’am, “No Ma’am”  “Yes Sir and No Sir”. This was their way of saying” be kind”.
 Northwest Branch is having an act of kindness day on October 22, 2012. All we ask is for the patrons to say thank you to the staff and the staff say’s thank you in return. Each individual may be surprised how this little act can spark a smile on someone’s face or make their day just a little brighter; gratitude goes a big way.

Participate with Friends Of The Library

Hello patrons it is such a reward having you participate in the Kroger reward program. For the past two years, you all have scanned your Kroger Cards and the Friends of Northwest Branch Library have received a profit from this program. We are doing it again this year. However, Kroger is asking us to do it online. In the library we have the instructions available. If you need help in doing this, come by the library on September 28th, 2013. We will be glad to help and bring your Kroger card. Thanks again in supporting the FRIENDS OF NORTHWEST BRANCH.

The Words We Tell:Poetry Workshop

Autumn has been a symbol for some not-so-happy feelings and ideas in the world of poetry for quite some time. But this doesn’t have to be so! We’re in Texas after all, and autumn means this heat is subsiding!  Give this autumn a positive association: make it a productive season for your poetry!
Israel, our Circulation Assistant would like to help! Israel has his Degree in English-Creative writing from the University of Houston where his focus was poetry. He is putting together a monthly poetry workshop for adults starting September 11,2013 so that he can share some of his knowledge. Participants will share their poems and receive constructive criticism so as to improve not only their work, but their skills as poets and writers.
So come to Northwest Library and sign up! Share your poetry, listen to the work of your friend’s and neighbors, and have a good time!...
