Review for Cypress Creek Friends Of The Library, Spring, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I moved to the area almost four years ago, one of the first things I planned to do was to look up theBarbara Bush Library. A single-parent friend of mine from church told me the library had been a wonderful resource place to spend time when visiting with his daughter. Finding it early on was a wonderful experience for me as well. I found a great community meeting place. I also found a source for so many books that I requested retrieved by a hard working staff of cheerful volunteers. Shortly after visiting, I became a volunteer in a variety of capacities.

Answering an open invitation, I attended a Friends of the Library board meeting, mostly out of curiosity. I found the group so friendly and passionate about providing hours and funds for the branch to carry out so many rewarding programs and community events for all ages and stages. I have served on the board for three years now and find it interesting to "go behind the scenes" to see what it takes to keep a thriving community library going in spite of county budget shortfalls and shrinking staff. I consider Barbara Bush Library Friends to be one of the lifelines of this busy community resource.

Role:  Board Member & Volunteer at book fairs and author visits, community open house, and staff luncheons. I served as Membership VP and currently as President. I helped with school district book festivals and represented the group at NW Chamber of Commerce meetings.
