September brings both the “last gasp” of the Texas hurricane season and lots of “back to school” activities. It is also a great time to learn how to get the best bargains possible with the help of free library programs, like the “Extreme Couponing!” presentation that will take place on September 14 at the Fairmont Branch Library. Also, Harmony Stained Glass Studios will be back at the Central Library on September 4 with the “Making Fused Glass Crosses” program to show you how to make gorgeous gifts at a very reasonable cost. And, of course, the place to go for bargains is the Friends Book Store, where you can enjoy great coffee (still only $.50!) and an even greater selection of gently used books and great gift items. Their cushy club chairs are a great place to relax and collect your thoughts. You’ll need the rest because even more exciting things are coming up in October.
