Bandera County library offerings

Posted in:

You may have missed Santa yesterday, Dec. 3, during his visit to the Bandera County Public Library, but there is still time to get into the holiday spirit.

The library decorations are rounding into a festive look both inside and outside.

The annual Holiday Giving Tree is right in front of the circulation desk. It allows patrons to adopt a book and get a tax-deductible receipt for their generous gift to their library.

The Friends of the Library will have its monthly book sale at the library on Saturday, Dec. 7, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

It will give everyone his or her last chance to secure bargain books for reading or for possible gift giving during Christmas.

The library will also have on display its month-long tribute to Pearl Harbor and World War II.

In addition, the library is the perfect place to watch the Cowboy Christmas Parade down Main Street beginning about 11 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7.

Public restrooms are always available during library hours. The library is located at 515 Main St. in Bandera.

The library’s monthly Book Club will celebrate with its annual holiday party later this month. The club has selected its reading list for 2020. Visit the display of their featured titles near the circulation desk.

The January selection is Lewis Buzbee’s “Yellow Lighted Bookshop: A Memoir, A History.” Buzbee, a former bookseller and sales representative, celebrates the unique experience of the bookstore - the smell and touch of books, getting lost in the deep canyons of shelves and the silent community of readers.

Two highly popular romance writers release new books in the same week.

Nora Roberts has her final volume in the Chronicles of One series, “Rise of the Magicks.” The Library Journal says of the novel, “It is a full fantasy, postapocalyptic version of Roberts’ tried and true storytelling mastery. Characters will come full circle, leaving no loose ends in this fast moving, robust story.”

In addition, Danielle Steel delivers another page turner titled “Spy.”

The book’s dust jacket provides this summary: “At 18, Alexandra Wickham is presented to King George V and Queen Mary in an exquisite white lace and satin dress her mother has ordered from Paris. With her delicate blond looks, she is a stunning beauty who seems destined for a privileged life.

“But fate, a world war, and her own quietly rebellious personality lead her down a different path.”

Michael Garr is the Bandera County Public Library director.
