This Week at the Library

2014 Summer Reading Program

Join us for Texas City Reads! Every year, the library picks a book for the community to read, ponder and discuss. This year's choice is Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain.

On Sept. 16, join us for a panel discussion on the topic of "Introverts vs. Extroverts: What Makes a Leader?" at the Nessler Center in the Alamo Room. You don't have to have read Quiet to enjoy the program! On Sept. 23, we'll have a book discussion on Quiet here at the library.

Want to check out our ebooks but not sure how? Not to fear! OverDrive, the company through which we provide ebooks, has created an easy-to-use Help Page to get you started. Give their guides a try and if you're still having problems, please bring your device to the Reference Desk or call us at (409) 643-5977.
