People have been at the epicenter of who we are, why we do what we do, and how we achieve our mission year after year.
Through the years we have seen customers become members, members become volunteers, and volunteers become board members.
The photo above is of the historic Julia Ideson Building at 550 McKinney in Downtown Houston. Ms. Ideson was one of the vital pioneers and leaders of our Houston Libraries, whose energy and talents knew no bounds. It is because of leaders like her, readers like you, and a leadership team like those listed below that her vision and ingenuity continue to live on.
