La Porte High School 50 Years Ago

In preparing a La Porte Back to School Display, we ran across the 1964-65 yearbook with this aerial view of  La Porte High School and surrounding area. There have been many changes in the last 50 years. In the upper right you can just see the block where this library now resides. Come in any time and browse the La Porte High School yearbooks.

Freeman Library Celebrates Local Authors

As Clear Lake City-County Freeman Branch Library continues to celebrate our 50th anniversary, we’ll also be celebrating our local authors on Saturday, 8/23

Interested in becoming an author yourself?  Panel discussions and presentations by local authors are on the schedule and cover topics such as, “Finding Your Own Voice”, “What’s new in Publishing/Self-Publishing” and “How I Got Published” just to name a few. 

Want to learn more about our local authors?  Sixteen are scheduled to appear, among them poets, children’s authors, science fiction authors, historical fiction authors, romance authors and more.  Including author readings and book signings, you will also have a chance to meet some of them by visiting the author tables set up around the library. 

A Little Fizz, Some Boom & Lots of Read!

Oh yes, August is here and we are officially at the end of our Summer Reading Program! Today is the last day to log in any books that you have read or listened to. If for some reason you can’t come in to claim your prize today (a free book for the first 10 books OR 500 minutes OR 500 pages), you do have time to do so until August 16th, (I know we are very nice). Remember we were giving you blue flasks to put your stickers on?
