We thank the people of Galveston County for their generous support and many book donations during our recovery from the Hurricane Ike flooding in 2008. We also thank Neil Sergi of Bookland in Spring, Texas who kindly donated most of our new shelving to us, and Half Price Books for their generous donation of shelving and store fixtures.
