This Friday @ Your Library

From Adult Services @ Freeman:

Kathryn Black Morrow spoke February 5th  at our Under50Over program. She gave
excellent tips for sorting, organizing and writing about all the various
family photos, letters, reciepts and clothes or other material you have
inhereted or have collected. We hope to have her come again and expand on
writing about our Family History.

We are looking forward to having Herman Auer who is standing in for Mary Demeny speak on gardening in the Houston area Friday the 12th. Adults of all ages are welcome to join us.
