  1. Coffee & Conversations

    February 10, 2020, 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM @ 2nd Floor, Auditorium

    The community is invited to be a part of a special monthly program made possible by the West Texas Homeless Network. Join us at the Main Library on the second Monday mornings of each month at 9:00AM for an hour-long program titled Coffee and Conversations. If you know someone who might be in need of housing, food, clothing, or support, sometimes you might not know where to go for help or who to refer the person in need to. At this monthly program, you can come find out what help is available in our community, while enjoying free coffee & snacks. Come talk and share your stories and see how you can get access to services someone you know might benefit from.
