HIGHLANDS – The Harris County Public Library Stratford Branch has a new Book Van, courtesy of the Rotary Club.

Club president Andy Scott explained that every third year, the Rotary International joins with a local club to sponsor and partially pay for a community project that the club proposes.

This year the club decided to continue their support of the local Stratford Library, and students, seniors and residents that are served by the library, by providing a Mobile Van to bring the books and other resources directly to the public.

This is especially helpful this year, since access to the interior of the library has been closed, due to the pandemic. It is not known when this restriction will end, so the van will be very helpful in delivering books to community centers, schools, senior living homes, and other locations where library resources will be needed.

Librarian Mandy Sheffield points out that all library services are still available, by using the “curb-side delivery,” and now by a Van that can bring the resources right to your location. You can call the library at 281-426- 3521 to request an item.
