Please save the date for our annual Central Texas Performer Showcase to be held at the Georgetown Public Library on Friday, November 3rd. Registration to attend will be sent out closer to the event, but mark your calendars so you can see before you hire!

SRP, Here We Go!

It is that time again! The months of planning will pay off as you kick off your summer reading program. I know you will all have a very busy and successful summer. Don’t forget the importance of the work you are doing for your community. Without quality programming during the summer months, the summer slide can have consequences that reverberate throughout life. Children can lose one to three months of learning and disadvantaged children are disproportionately affected. As informal learning environments, public libraries are in a wonderful position to give children what they need to succeed and have fun, memorable summers. Focus on the fun, they will continue to come back for more, and you will be setting them up thrive.

Personal Note

Many of you reached out to me after my father’s passing earlier this month. I cannot tell you how much it meant to me to get your emails and notes in the mail with your kind words. Never underestimate your ability to make a difference in other’s lives. I am so proud to work with all of you and appreciate your support.
