The Home Hospice Harmonizers is a group of employees that will be visiting nursing facilities in Grayson and Cooke counties to spread the Christmas cheer via song.

  • Earliest maps of Texas are included in a collection now available to the public.
  • After an intense storm, it’s not uncommon to find scattered broken branches, downed power lines, or an abundance of fallen leaves. These effects of a storm are just the usual repercussions of the fury of nature. But sometimes something a little different happens, something that can seem like the end of a tree’s life.
  • For a "jolly old elf" who's supposed to be shining up the reindeer harness and quality checking toys before shipment, Old St. Nicholas makes a lot of public appearances around this time of year, and the Bonham Public Library is honored to be included in his busy schedule!

Santa will join us for our regular storytime event at 6:00 p.m. and will visit with children and listen to holiday wishes after the activities.

As your new library Director, I would like to welcome everyone to come and check out what your public library has to offer you.

It is a special way to discovery and knowledge.
