Quench your thirst this weekend

Lemonade Sale

To help our neighbors out during Fairmount’s Home Tour, we’ll be selling lemonade in front of the library for a dollar.  All proceeds go towards operating costs of the library.

That means, money raised can go towards printer paper, craft supplies, tape for book binding, wifi, and yes, coffee!

And, as always, the first Saturday of the month means we’ll have Children’s Story Hour at 11 am with a craft to follow.


A Time for Giving Thanks


Thank you for coming to enjoy our 1st Annual Fall Festival.   We had an amazing time seeing all our neighbors.  We’d especially like to thank our sponsors, Ryder and Fixture because without them, it would not have been possible to organize such an amazing event.   We’d also like to thank the following for their support as well: Fairmount Neighborhood AssociationFairmount Community GardenCook Children’s, and Blue Zones Project Fort Worth.  Additionally, thank you to Melt and Arts 5th Avenue for donating to our raffle.

We are also extremely grateful for our City Councilwoman Ann Zedah as well as our former City Councilman Joel Burns for judging our Children’s Costume Contest.  We can all agree that they had an extremely difficult decision.

A special shout out goes to all of our volunteers who spent a lot of their time preparing, planning and helping out at the festival.

About the Author:

Born in Honolulu, Hawaii, Barbara was raised in various locations across the Midwest and once lived on the grounds of a first offender prison facility, where her husband was a deputy warden. The experience–interacting with the inmates, their families, and the people who worked with them–made a profound impression and provided her with a unique insight into the circumstances of the crimes that were committed and the often surprising ways the justice system moved to deal with them.

An avid gardener, Barbara has two sons and lives on a farm in the Texas Hill Country, outside Austin.
