Once upon a time.....

The Houston Grand Opera's Opera to Go! entertained a room full of kids and their parents on April 21 with their performance of "Cinderella in Spain". The colorful set, funny costumes and delightful music made this a special treat for those attending.

If you missed this performance, the HGO will be performing at the Miller Outdoor Theatre May 3-7.

Where Do Books Go?

 Ever wonder where your books go when you slide them in the drop?
 Here is what our book drop looks like on a typical Monday.  WOW! That’s a lot of books! Don’t worry; we still have lots of good books on our shelves.
