Finding Your Roots @Your Library

At one time or another, we all become interested in finding out about our individual family history--the family origins, how the family name came about, family ancestors, and other family history.  Various books are available to help with researching family history, and we have a new display of several recommended titles to guide you on your search.  The Harris County Public Library also provides access to genealogical databases which provide comprehensive treasuries of family lineage and local histories and which can be used to trace family lineage and American culture from the original 13 colonies.  Happy Reading and Researching!

A Harvest of Books

It's that time of the year when the weather begins to turn cooler, leaves start to turn different colors, and we start to think about the various holidays to be celebrated from now to the end of the year.  To help you find good picture books about the changing season, we have created a new display of titles to check out and share with youngsters, "A Harvest of Books."  Our selection includes books about harvesting, the Fall season, and, of course, pumpkins!  Please browse the display on your next visit to the library and I bet you will find some books to take home.  If not, please ask us and we will find what you need.  Happy Harvest Reading!
