Only $10 of your $20 annual dues are retained by the Harris County Chapter. The remaining $10 go to the CHS state organization. With the removal of the state support of the Library, CHS state funds are no longer available to help cover the rental and utility expenses of the Harris County Chapter library, increasing our chapter expense budget by $4,000 per year.

Donations are welcome and very much appreciated. Please contact Anna Krpec at 713-349-0500, or by email,
