Remember the simple joy of going to the local library to study, read books, magazines or timely newspapers? Libraries are special places, they offer a respite from the weather, the pressures of the pandemic or just by offering a quiet environment. There are so many things to do at the library. If, in deed, just learning is a life long pursuit, then the local Library is perfect. That being said, September is National Library Card Month. The device that unlocks a world of knowledge and entertainment is the Library Card. With a Library card the owner can travel to foreign lands, while never leaving the comfort of home. A Library Card is the key to discovering the history of your own town, county, state, and country. This is the perfect place to find the history of the entire world, right in the confines of your home town library. The city of Liberty has a magnificent library. Director is Dana (Donna) Abshier. Ms. Abshier, said that the Library Card should be on the top of every student’s school supply list. Perhaps he best part is tht this fabulous access to tens of thousands of books and other publications is free. With a Library Card, every patron also has access to the TexShare database. TexShare data bases are e-resources that are licensed for Texas libraries and their patrons. The library urges everyone to get a library card or renew an expired card. There is no charge for a library card at the Liberty Municipal Library whether you live inside or outside of the city limits of Liberty. All that is required is an up-to-date Texas driver license or ID card. The Liberty library is located inside the Geraldine D. Humphreys Cultural Center. That’s the big gray cinderblock building across from the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, at 1710 Sam Houston Street in Liberty. That’s the next block west of Liberty City Hall on Sam Houston Street. During this pandemic world we live in, current hours of operation are Monday and Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The rest of the week the Liberty Municipal Library is closed to the public, but patrons may call to request materials to be picked up at the library’s front door.
