Sulphur Springs Public Library 2017 SPRING CALENDAR is ready. We have three fantastic programs you do not want to miss; each program offers refreshments and an entry for tickets to Scarborough Fair Renaissance Festival, drawing held at the end of the last program:

Couponing Class by Courtney from My Crazy Savings .com will be here Thursday February 9, 6-8pm with helpful resources on couponing and saving. Learn about different kinds of coupons, shopping and saving without coupons, and retail and restaurant savings.

Lyndsay’s Cooking Tips and Skills by Lyndsay’s Plates and Provisions on Main Street on Thursday February 23 6-8pm is offering kitchen tips and tricks to strengthen your kitchen skills.

Why do I need a Will? With local attorney Joel Sheffield on Thursday March 2, 6-8pm sharing expertise in wills, probate, power of attorney, estate planning and trusts.


  • Watch for our Resume Maker tutorial in May, before the Workforce sponsored Job Fair; or come in now and spend some time polishing up your resume with our free online service.
  • Computer Coach Sessions are going very well.  We are happy to assist our community in their online needs.  Make your appointment today for 10 minutes of individual help on the computer.
  • Mark your calendars for Summer Reading Club Registration for June 8 at 6pm with food, petting zoo, book bag, and reading log!  The Summer Reading Club encourages kids to read whatever they want, which helps instill a love of reading for recreation.  Reading in the summer also improves language skills, keeps a young brain engaged and open to learn, grow and develop.

Do you love your job?  If so, do you enthusiastically tell people about it?  If you are excited about what you do, others will take notice.  We should equip ourselves to be proud of our job.

My Texas Library Journal magazine this month talks about leaders and owning your profession. I thought this was a great topic for everyone to hear.  Everyone is a potential leader. Demonstrating enthusiasm to take on new tasks, or by leading or managing changes, you are practicing leadership.  You make a choice to make things happen or make a difference.

I challenge you this year to seize the opportunity to learn, to mature and make unique contributions to your organization and beyond.  Broaden your horizons, challenge yourself, surprise yourself! There is room for growth every day, sometimes you win, sometimes you learn.  Never measure your unlimited potential by your limited expectations.

Grow and be energized, show the world what you see and what you have, and most of all…smile!

The Public Library is located at 611 North Davis St. and our number is 903-885-4926.

We are open 6 days a week:  MTWF 9-6, TH 11-8 and Sat 9-1.
