Closing for Thanksgiving

Pilgrim turkeyI'm sure our web site staff will be posting this soon, but I just wanted to give you a heads-up.  We will be closed for Thanksgiving from Thursday, November 24, through Sunday, November 27.  That’s why none of your library items are due on those 4 days.  smiley  [Clipart © Microsoft.]

Libraries – The Original Recyclers

RecycleI had never thought about it that way.  Then yesterday I saw two t-shirts, one that said, “Libraries: Recycling since 300 B.C.” and one that said, “Read Green: Borrow from Your Public Library.”  Wow!  Imagine all of the trees that have been saved by people sharing books (scrolls, manuscripts, etc.) through libraries in the past 2300 years.  That’s a lot of trees.  We were eco-friendly when eco-friendly wasn’t cool.  And now we’re sharing CDs and DVDs, so that’s like recycling, too.  FYI, November 15 is America Recycles Day.  [Clipart © Jupiter Images.]

Coming Soon!

Coming SoonThe Friends of the Library will be having a book sale on Saturday, December 3.  What can you do to help?  (1)  If you have any books, CDs or DVDs that are clean and in good condition, you can donate them to the Friends for the sale.  Donations are tax deductible.  (2)  You can volunteer to help set up the sale on Friday afternoon or work the sale on Saturday.

Many Thanks

CheckJean H. puts in a lot of volunteer hours at the library, doing literacy tutoring, going through the donated books and other items, restocking the shelves in the front hallway, and acting as Treasurer for the Friends of the Library.  Because she puts in so many volunteer hours here, her employer, CenterPoint Energy, has donated $500 to the Friends of the Library.  Thank you Jean and thank you CenterPoint!!  [Despite how much Jean does, the library is always looking for additional intelligent, reliable volunteers, especially adults, because they can volunteer while the teenagers are at school.]  Clipart © Jupiter Images.

Remember, We Have Cookbooks

Cookbook-CheapI just discovered that, among many others things, October is National Cookbook Month.  So, I thought it would be a good time to remind you that Harris County Public Library has thousands of cookbooks!  Not just cookbooks for fun desserts, we also have them for diabetes-friendly or gluten-free foods, main courses, foreign foods, vegetarian and vegan foods, and just about anything else you can imagine.  Tired of the same old stuff?  Stop by and see what we have!
