ANOTHER GREAT SUMMER IN THE BOOKS

Another summer full of entertaining and educational crafts and programming has come to a close. We want to give a big thank you to the Friends of La Porte Library for their financial support for all our summer activities. These dedicated people give of themselves weekly to ready the donated books for sale. 

With budgets as stretched as they are, it is the Friends membership dues, donations, and book sales that allow us to provide a richer summer for all our children and teens.

This database contains full text books and periodicals covering both historical and current Texas events, places, and people. For example, a search on San Jacinto Monument brings back 28 hits. Some are chapters from books about the history of the Monument, others are articles about current events from periodicals like Houston Chronicle, Dallas Morning News, Texas Monthly, etc.
