We Have a Winner!

FB SRP winner All of the participants who logged 4 books that they read over the summer into HCPL’s adult summer reading program, ReaderNation, were entered into a random drawing for Amazon.com gift cards sponsored by the Harris County Friends of the Library.  The Fairbanks Branch customer who won a $50 gift card was Christy R.  Christy is an emergency veterinarian and the owner of a bird, a guinea pig and a couple of hamsters.  Christy’s mother was always reading to Christy and her sister and taking them to the public library when they were children.  So, Christy grew up with a love of reading and libraries.  Every time she moves to a new town, the first thing she does is find the nearest grocery store a

Under the Sea

The weather continues to be hot and dry here in the Houston area, so I like to think and read about places that have a lot of water and are much cooler.  Some of the staff here at the Fairbanks Branch have selected books about seas and oceans and the various creatures that live in them and placed them on display in the children's area of the library close to the entrance from the lobby.  Please browse the "Under the Sea" display on your next visit to the library and at least you can read about some places that are definitely cooler and wetter.  Stay cool and happy reading!
