The Friends supplement the County funding for this library, helping to make it a great asset for our community. The library provides print and electronic resources, popular classes, and programs for all ages from infants to seniors. This group has been called the "Rock Star" of Texas Friends groups.

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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

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.

The Barbara Bush library is the busiest library in the county. This is not simply because they have a large population: it reflects their dedication to providing the collections and the services needed by their community. The library is an active member of the Cypress Creek community providing meeting space, story times, and services such as early voting.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Sending my grandson to storytime.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide them with additional staffing.
