Fort Bend County Libraries will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of George Memorial Library, 1001 Golfview in Richmond, on Saturday, November 12, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, with a family celebration throughout the library. The Friends of the George Memorial Library organization will be honored with a special presentation at 11:00 am in the Meeting Room for the contributions its members have made to the library throughout the past quarter of a century.
Children will enjoy a variety of free activities, including a castle bounce-house that will be located just outside the building. Indoors, children will enjoy a special Puppet Show and craft activities in the Meeting Room. Claude, the Juggler – a crowd favorite during the library’s Shakespeare-by-the-Book Festival for many years – will return to entertain following the presentation in the Meeting Room, after which he will perform throughout the building.
Visitors to the library’s anniversary celebration will also be treated to an exhibit of American-Indian Art that will be on display in the library’s Bohachevsky Gallery. The exhibit includes a seven-panel display of photographs depicting American-Indian Art from various North American tribes. Discover the traditions and styles of the Northeast, Northwest, Southeast, Southwest, Plains, and Mexican Indians.
The Friends of the George Memorial Library will be selling books in the lobby, and membership applications will be available for people who would like to join them in supporting the library. The Friends group is instrumental in providing financial support to the library for materials and educational opportunities not covered by the county budget.
Refreshments for the day’s celebration will be provided courtesy of Safari Texas. For more information on the celebration, call the library’s Public Information Office at 281-341-2677.
