Para Los Ninos Program - this Thursday at Stratford!

This Thursday at 5pm we will be hosting our monthly "Para Los Ninos" parent/child workshop and storytime.  The program was created by a partnership of the Children's Museum and Houston Public Library. We will be exploring the theme of "Loving Limits" and how to live them out with your child. There will be a storytime, mini-workshop, and three or four fun activities. Please join us!

Production of the Model-T Ford Ends and the Stratford Library Begins

May 1927, the Highlands community gathered together 159 books and the Harris County librarian opened the library in Highlands as one of the first 16 libraries in the county. The first month, these 159 books circulated 328 times! Almost 83 years later this same library, now known as the Stratford Branch, owns around 26,000 items and the circulation was 4,518 times in the month of February. Come on into the library to see historical pictures of the history of the library in past years. Add to this history with stories you can remember when you were a child and visited the library.

Line Formed at 7:45 a.m. on Tuesday

Income tax help is in big demand! Why? Because it is free, fast and thorough. AARP is at the Stratford Library every Tuesday through April 13th from 11:oo a.m. - 3:00 p.m. You may sign in as early as 10:00 on Tuesday mornings. These people were very eager to put their names on the line by 10:00 on the first Tuesday of tax help. There are three people who come to file your taxes, so there isn't a need to be anxious. Come enjoy coffee and refreshments provided by the Stratford Friends of the Library. Donations for these will be used toward children's programming in the summer.

The BEST thing about this tax service that is offered is it's FREE!

How Much is a Dollar?

This week we would just like to spotlight one of our wonderful Stratford patrons, Yvette Gardner, a mother of a busy 3 year old daughter and regular attendee of our baby/toddler story time on Thursday mornings.
