Friday, August 13, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., the library will be hosting the Bandera Chamber of Commerce’s monthly Cork Poppers.
All are welcome to this networking and socializing event. Please bring a bottle of wine and an appetizer to share.
During Friday’s Cork Popper event, the library will also host local cartoon-drawing cowboy, Dennis Allyn for a book signing.
Allyn’s work was recently published in a collection of his editorial cartoons called “Bandera Politics (Dennis Allyn Unchained).”
School is starting again next week and everyone here at the library would like to wish the students, teachers, aids, administrators and staff the best of luck.

New titles this week include Catherine Coulter’s latest FBI thriller called “Vortex.”
Agents Sherlock and Savich are working on two cases that put them each in pursuit of the truth and trouble not far behind. Agent Sherlock’s case involves a young political investigative journalist in New York City named Mia Briscoe.
Seven years ago, Mia went to a huge frat party with her college best friend Serena. A fire broke out in the frat house, and everyone was safe and accounted for except for Serena. She left no trace behind.
Years later, Mia discovers photographs taken the night of the fire and starts connecting the dots. Very powerful and dangerous people begin to make Mia and Agent Sherlock’s lives quite uncomfortable as they get nearer the truth.
Agent Savich also has his hands full. Savich is assigned a recuperating CIA operative recently returned from Iran. A grenade has almost killed her and the teammate who saved her life is MIA along with a critical flash drive. What intelligence did this drive carry that would cause the agent to run?
The Bandera Library is open Monday to Friday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Curbside service is available for checkouts and business services. Free Wi-Fi is available 24/7. Masks are recommended while in the library building. Check out our website www.banderacountylibrary.org for all up-to-date information.
Happy tales, y’all.
Mauri Guillen Fagan is the Director of the Bandera Public Library.
