Older Americans Month Profile:
Meet Norma Williams
You've probably seen Norma Williams zipping around town. Whether she's working at the Onion Creek Senior Center, or attending a Task Force on Aging Meeting, Norma is always on the go. The 85-year-old is a firm believer that age is nothing but a number. We thought she would be the perfect person to profile for Older Americans Month. Every May, the Administration for Community Living leads our nation’s observance of Older Americans Month. This year's theme is Connect, Create, Contribute.

Día de los Niños

Día de los Niños at the  Buda Public Library  celebrates children, families and reading with a multicultural flair. Join us as we travel around the world on May 4 from 2:00 -4:00 p.m.
