Independence, 920 Homes or 2,500?

They keep saying 920 homes for “Independence”, but even as far back as 2009 another development called “Serenity Pointe” has been right next door to the former “Bandera” development. Literally, right next door.

Comprehensive Plan Meeting #2
Special BOCC Meeting 
October 25th

The Friends of the Elizabeth Library, a volunteer group committed to promoting library activities and providing funds for various library causes, recently funded and dedicated a new sign at the entrance to the Elizabeth Library. Designed by local artist, Vince DeCuio of American Steel Art, the sign certainly enhances the entryway to the Elizabeth Library.

Our first annual Library Tea, held in June, featured a traditional English tea party menu, a silent auction, and a myriad of delightful hats. A sold out crowd expressed their delight with the event, so the date for the second annual Library Tea has already been set for June 6, 2018. Mark your calendars!

Additionally, the ongoing used book sale continues in the public room to the left of the entryway in the library. Well organized and constantly updated and restocked, the Friends invite you to stop in, pick out some books that interest you, and make a voluntary donation to the cause.

Items recently purchased by the Friends for the Elizabeth Library include stocking the teen reading area with chairs and an Xbox video system. Sponsorship of various speakers and programs by the Friends has also been provided for the public’s enjoyment.

Next meeting of the Elizabeth Friends of the Library will be November 16 at 2PM in the public room at the library. Join us for some friendship, collegiality and an opportunity for public service.
