The library is about to become a movie star! Seriously, a videographer from the Texas Book Festival grant program was here on Tuesday to do a film highlighting the impact of the grant we received and the importance of the library to the community. Students were here for their field trip, so you may want to ask a second-grader for his or her autograph.
