I have checked out many books, had tutoring sessions in the small rooms upstairs, had books sent to and from this library with inter-library loan and been part of a meeting group here. There have also held early voting at this library over the years. They offer programming for the whole community from movies to book discussions to reading times and classes in multiple languages to all age ranges. The librarians are helpful in assisting all the people that come to the library. It is truly a community center.

The Great!

The books I have been able to check out, the book clubs they have and the rooms I have been able to use for tutoring.

I would have the early voting come back to this location because last year it was hard to find. This is an easy to find and central location.

The Barbara Bush Library is the centerpiece of our local community. As a Board member of Barbara Bush Library, it is such a pleasure to help contribute to the success of this library. The numbers don't lie ... the staff and services at Barbara Bush library is outstanding.

I am now a library patron, but at one time I worked in the Acquisitions Dept of the library system. My dept ordered materials for all the branches and my co-worker and I were always amazed at the extra materials we were able to order for the Barbara Bush library due to the generous donations from the Cypress Creek Friends of the Library. They managed to provide items that just could not be funded through the library's budget. This is so very important now with state and local budget cuts. They are a strong and generous group working to help the whole community.

I have benefited from the Cypress Creek Friends of the Library since I first came to this branch in 1983. The Cypress Creek Friends of the Library (now known as Barbara Bush Library Friends) provide extra funds for extra library staff during the busy summer season, and also members of the Friends shelve books regularly to supplement our shrinking shelving staff, among other things.

I have personally benefited when the Cypress Creek Friends of the Library raised money for the library's Computer Lab where I give classes twice each month on how to use our library databases. Also the Friends provide funds so that I can order extra books each year beyond the library's discretionary funds limit.

I don't have any suggestions for changes. The Friends have been there for the library and the public we serve for many, many years now.

This library has the most helpful and sincere staff. They are always eager to help in any way and incredibly knowledgeable. In addition to having a wide variety of resources, this library is a great place to go to study in a quiet environment.

This library is absolutely the best. The volunteers and paid employees are extremely friendly and helpful. The library is also very clean and maintained. I love taking my daughter to the library and we spend a couple hours just walking around the HUGE Children's section. We have attended a few of the children's programs (a marionette show and a movie day- Lion King) and they were fantastic!
I love this library! I also love that I can sign online, reserve a book for me, pick it up, and spend a couple hours reading it in the Children's section while my daughter explores the gorgeous facility.

My family and I moved here from Corpus Christi Texas and were very excited to find the Barbra Bush library so close to us. We have four children who all love books. We really liked the children's book area and the staff was very helpful in assisting us with what we were looking for.

I moved here from a little town in LA after Hurricane Katrina. The local library was tiny, no working computers, and was on the verge of closing due to lack of parish funding.
I walked in to the Barbara Bush library with my kids and was amazed at the light airy rooms filled with books. It has
been a pleasure going to the library, the staff in the children's area are very helpful and nice.
I also enjoy the book sale room.

When I first moved to Spring a year ago, I sought out the library near my apartment. From the moment I stepped inside, I was warmly welcomed by staff and volunteers. No question was too strange or annoying either! The entire experience that I've had in borrowing items has been quick, easy and very convenient. I've recommended several people to the BB/Cypress Creek Library numerous times. It's outstanding!
