Houston Public Library Implements New Service Hours
Like many libraries across the state and nation, Houston Public Library is experiencing an increase in library usage while the economy is forcing reductions to our budget. In an effort to better align our services with our current budget and staff resources, we will implement a reduction in service hours beginning this Saturday, April 17, 2010.
We remain committed to providing the high level of customer service you expect from the Houston Public Library. We apologize for any inconvenience these changes may cause. We will be monitoring library usage and listening to customer feedback as we move forward.
Please visit www.houstonlibrary.org/new-hours-of-operation for more information about how these decisions were made, and what the new hours of operation will be at your library.

IN MEMORY OF Valleau Wilkie, Jr.
Sid W. Richardson Foundation - Fort Worth
A gentle giant with a great heart who fostered excellence in everything he touched. We were blessed to know him.
The International Exotic Animal Sanctuary recently became home to two tiny American black bear cubs, one male and one female, who were found abandoned in their wild Alaska. These two were young, helpless, and unable to survive on their own. As such, they were transported to their new forever home in Texas. At IEAS, they will have 1.5 acres of forest, meadow, and grass to thrive in. With the help of Emotional Enrichment, they will learn to find security and trust in their new family. IEAS staff is eager and excited to make the lives of these cubs as amazing as possible, and they can't wait to watch them live like wild bears in a safe, caring environment!
