End of Summer Celebrations! Free Family Fun for All Ages.

 

Get Ready To Celebrate! 

As part of the end of summer celebrations we have scheduled two extremely fun special programs for families. Tickets are not required for these events and they are open to people of all ages. So, we expect to see all of our friends there. A great time will be had by all, but please be aware that the library will be noisier than normal.

Seems like a very logical and creative solution. That being said, MSN news recently reported the that square watermelon sold for $856. What??? I think that I'll stick with the round ones for now.

Genealogy: Researching Texan Ancestors

We celebrate Texas Independence Day on March 2nd, but 21 April 1836 is the date of the Battle of San Jacinto, the final battle in the Texas Revolution.  The 2013 San Jacinto Day Festival and Battle Reenactment will be held on April 20th at the San Jacinto Battleground State Historic Site, and in honor of this event in history I’m going to focus on resources for researching your Texan ancestors and Texas history for this month’s post.  If you want to learn more about the battle of San Jacinto or th
