Did you know that many of our patrons share names with famous people? It’s true! Many of the people who come to Northwest can boast of having the same name or names that sound like those of the Founding Fathers, action heroes, famous fictional characters, and other celebrities. So who knows who you’ll meet at the library? Why don’t you come and find out!
Yesterday, The Houston Grand Opera came and visited us here at Northwest Library. We had over 80 people in attendance. They sang an opera written by Composer Enrique Gonzalez-Medina. How Nanita Learned to Make Flan was entertaining for all ages. It was a wonderful sight to see three year olds that just came from Toddler Storytime come and enjoy the artistic talents of local Opera Singers. The story was of a little girl named Nanita who made a magical pair of shoes that transport her far from her beloved father. While away, she learns to make the most delicious flan. With the help of a talking parrot and an old woman, she finds her way back and shares her new culinary skills with all at her first communion. What a wonderful tale for all! What true talents we have right here in Houston! Thank you, Opera to Go.

Shakespeare once said “Tickle us, do we not laugh? Prick us, do we not bleed maroon?” Okay, maybe those weren’t his exact words but no Aggie would disagree with that translation. And, I am definitely a proud fightin’ Texas Aggie!
The Friends of the Northwest Library is a wonderful group of community members that support the library. One current fundraising effort is our canvas book bags. For a donation of $5, you can sport a fine canvas tote with the Friends of the Northwest Library logo on it. You'll be the talk of the town (well, at least the talk of your book club!). So come on in and considering supporting this wonderful organization. Another way to support the Friends of the Library is to come to the next book sale on January 30th. Mark your calendars! Lastly, you can donate your books to the group.
Information for Persons with Disabilities: Harris County Public Library will make reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities who are interested in attending library programs.
