The Barbara Bush Harris County Library offers amazing services and exemplary creativity in serving the public. Much of this is made possible by the Cypress Creek Friends of the Library. This organization is a model for what it means to support literacy and learning in America.

I would encourage more and more support for this organization so that they can expand their services even further. They are changing lives for young children through adults and seniors in exemplary ways.

Without the BBLF we would not have all the programs that the library provide through out the year. Thank you for all that you do for the Barbara Bush Library.

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.

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

increased reading and sharing information with my scout group.

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

continue making sure it is well funded.

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!

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

finding the materials I've needed for my classes.

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

Ask if they can be open earlier on the weekend.

Every week I go to this library with my wife and son. We want to encourage him to love reading like we do, so we choose books each week and read to him before bed every night. Without the service this library gives us we wouldn't be able to afford new books for my son to experience. He already will often prefer sitting in my lap to read a book than playing with a toy.

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

seeing my son want to read every day, which will only help him become a better member of society in the future.

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

buy more children's books - with more money from this fund, perhaps?

This place is fantastic! I love being able to download audio books and load them on my MP3 player. This is a great way to keep up on my reading while working out. I hope they get more because there is no way I could enjoy all the books and movies I have without the library.

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

My workouts are more enjoyable because I get to listen to stories I have downloaded from here. I get to “read” and stay in shape, it’s a great way to multi task with a hectic life.

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

I would add more electronic content to download

I belong to the Enrichment and Brotherhood Organization of Northwest Youth. We have held our meetings at the library for over 20 years. Four years ago, the librarian asked us to co-sponsor the African American Read-In at the library. In addition to using the library facilities to host the event, the Cypress Creek Friends of the Library were very instrumental in helping us with the event. They provided financial assistance and very friendly volunteers to help on the day of the event. This is a community event and it would not be successful without the support of the Cypress Creek Friends of the Library.

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

their support of the African American Read-In. They helped find and fund some of the performers. Also, they provided resources and refreshments.

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

not know what to change. The Cypress Creek Friends of the Library have been very supportive of our events.
