We're proud of our Amigos Library Services members and want to recognize the work that they do in their communities. Each month we will be showcasing an Amigos member library or institution. It's a great way for Amigos members, and non-members alike, to learn from and meet colleagues and peers.
A community resource and gathering space led by Director of Library Services, Cecilia Barham, the North Richland Hills Library in Texas, provides expertly selected collections, exciting events, educational classes, and valuable services. Their library staff "strive to serve our patrons with excellence in customer service and to show kindness and compassion towards all visitors." In this heart-warming member spotlight, you will meet not only various library staff but also patrons that are happy to have benefited from the services the library offers.
