C'mon Irving... I'm looking for that personal pan pizza coupon 😂😂😂
#IrvingCranes questions: what size paper do you recommend? Are there instructions for folding a crane?
Just went to the library, had to use the drive thru, which I really don’t mind. What I do mind is that the attendant refused to give me a book until I put a mask on. Sitting alone in my own car, 4-5 feet from the window and they make you wear a mask. How utterly ridiculous. I pick up food at a drive thru and they don’t make me wear one. I guess that’s the difference between a business that wants your patronage and a government entity that could care less.
Why was Java Me Up closed? No announcement, just suddenly closed. Did the City cancel their lease? So sad to see it gone.
I would like to speak with someone regarding a library card sign up event. We have had you come out on property before and we would like to include you in our Back to School event in August.
Wonderful event today! Thank you all for coming out despite the weather conditions. I had a great time!!!
Can you post the schedule for kids storytime activities during the day? As weather turning cold looking for activities.
Will you be doing a haunted house this year for Halloween?
It sure would be great to see "Behind the Texas Badge" have a book signing at Irving Public Library. Doug and Carol Hutchison have ties to Irving. Doug Hutchison is a retired Irving Police Officer and Carol Hutchison grew up in Irving and graduated from Nimitz High School.https://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/North-Texas-Couple-Tells-Stories-Behind-the-Texas-Badge-in-New-Book-488970751.html https://video.foxnews.com/v/5814062172001/#sp=show-clips
“Whimsical, thought-provoking, deftly crafted, "This Is Me, Not Robert Creeley, Speaking " clearly showcases Paul Bussan's genuine flair for deftly crafted, succinct, and memorable free verse. This brief compendium of his work is very highly recommended for personal reading lists.” -The Midwest Book Review, June, 2017
A man walks into a library and asks, "Can I have a cheeseburger?" The librarian whispers, "Sir, this is a library." The man whispers, "Can I have a cheeseburger?"
