It's not too late

 We've already sent our "Texans Love Libraries" post cards to the legislators but you can still let them know that you do not want library funding to be cut 93%. The budget cuts that affect public libraries the most are TexShare Online Information, Loan Star Libraries, and Telecommunications Discounts. Loss of the telecommunications discounts would cost our library system over $377,000!

The following link allows you to e-mail the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and your State Senator and State Rep all at the same time:

Giddy Up, Pardner!

Howdy, Pardners!  It's that time of year for the rodeo, so get your western wear duds out, polish up your boots, and put on your hat, saddle up and mosey on down to the library to browse our new display of picture books about cowboys--"Giddy Up, Pardner!"  Happy Reading!   

Coming to a theater near you

Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre is coming to the silver screen on Friday, March 25. The film re-make stars Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland [2010]) and Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds).

Not familiar with the classic story? We have several copies on the shelf that you can check out. And while you're at it, be sure to snag a free movie poster in the lobby.

In the Pink!

If your favorite color is Pink, then you will like our new display of children's picture books with stories that have some connection to the color Pink.  On your next visit to the library, please browse the "In the Pink" display and find a fun picture book to read and share.  Happy Reading!
