I hope that you got a chance to read the special 4-page insert in today’s Star-Telegram. If you didn’t get a copy, please stop by the library and pick one up. It makes us so proud to read about where the library has been, where it is now and where it is going. Ann Bastable’s wonderful article titled Haltom City: A look back in time takes you on a picturesque trip back to the typical small town in the 60’s. Haltom City has grown so much since then and so has the library.
We want to thank all the local businesses, the 50th Birthday Committee, the Friends of the Library, the Library Advisory Board, the library staff, and the Star-Telegram for helping put the Haltom City Public Library’s 50th Celebration in the news! (OMG – I hope I haven’t forgot anyone – is it Oscar time again?)
While it is always fun to look back and reflect on the past, the library continues to look forward for new ways to enhance its services to you, the community. The library is in the process of building a Permanent Art Collection. New classes and workshops are being offered such as Art Wednesday, Art Classes for children by Bennie Johnson Wood, an eBook Reader Workshop, and a Resume Writing & Job Searching Workshop. They all start this month and others are planned for the following months. Stop by the library and pick up a flier or check the City website for more information about these classes and workshops.
From Headlines to Deadlines—the entry deadline for the Annual Images of Haltom City Photo Contest is March 29, 2011. The entry deadline for the Library’s Annual Writing Contest is May 31, 2011.
