Summer Reading Club Programs and Activities Are Over, However, There Is Still Plenty For Children To Do At The Library!

Catch the Reading Express Summer Reading Program and Activities officially ended Saturday, August 7th. Children are encouraged to visit the library to pick up their “railroads” before staff in children’s services removes them from the walls, doors and windows on Saturday, August 21st.

Are you 60+ and having trouble getting started with computers?

Drop in to the Seniors Help Session in the Barbara Bush Library Friends Computer Lab on the first and third Tuesday of each month from 10 am to 12 pm and let our volunteers give you some assistance.  No registration is required.

Building Community Collaborations!

Red, White and Blue BlanketDriving like bank robbers, Val and I packed up the car with forty-eight hand knitted lap blankets to be dropped off at Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center for local veterans receiving treatment at the hospital. These beautiful blankets, crafted by individual participants of the Knowledge Exchange, brighten the very sterile environment that our heroes are confined to, often for months, while they are patients on the Spinal Cord Injury Ward.
The San Jacinto Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution collects funds to purchase new yarn twice a year for the Knowledge Exchange. This collaboration has provided gorgeous yet “Manly” coverings for the men.
Lynn Katz delivered 230 chemo caps to The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. Thank you Knowledge Exchange!

Fun day at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston for our families.

The Bhat Family

Illustrating postcards, sketching in the galleries, watching movies, drinking lemonade, story time in front of great works of art and listening and singing with Don Sanders were all incorporated into a fun filled Sunday at The Museum of Fine Arts this past weekend. Families from our area boarded a big luxurious air conditioned bus and rode with our gregarious bus driver to the Museum District. We were greeted at the Caroline Law building by friendly museum staff and given our pass to visit the Art Complex. Each family chose what was on their itinerary for the afternoon and proceeded to have a relaxing afternoon.

Thank you to The Museum of Fine Arts Houston for providing us with a glorious Sunday afternoon.
