FERRIS PUBLIC LIBRARY: More than Books (February 29, 2024)

The Ellis County Elections Department will be holding the Joint Republican and Democratic Primary Elections here at the library from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 5, 2024.

Voter registration deadline has passed for this election, but there is still time register to vote in the Joint May Election to be held on May 4, 2024. The last day to register for the May election is Monday, Apr. 8, 2024.

To register, go online at or come by the library and get a Texas Voter Registration Application that you may fill out and mail to the Registrar of Voters in Waxahachie.

February is Black History Month, a time to honor the contributions and sacrifices of African Americans throughout America’s history. We at the Ferris Public Library want to thank those that checked out our non-fiction and fiction titles highlighting Black History, as well as those who participated in our events and programs.

Story Time is hosted every Wednesday from 10:30 – 11 a.m. Children are treated to stories, fun activities, and a snack. Before leaving, your child may choose a prize from the treasure chest. 

After-School Game Time is held each Thursday from 3:30 – 5 p.m. Children can play the PS5 on the large screen in the meeting room and board games are also available.

NEW BOOKS: “House of Flame and Shadow” by Sarah J. Maas, “The Frozen River” by Ariel Lawhon, and “Rethinking Diabetes: What Science Reveals About Diet, Insulin, and Successful Treatments” (Dewey 616) by Gary Taubes.

BOOK BLURB: “Rethinking Diabetes: What Science Reveals About Diet, Insulin, and Successful Treatments” by Gary Taubes, released 2024. The result of Taubes’s work is a reimagining of diabetes care that argues for a recentering of diet – particularly, fewer carbohydrates and more fat – over a reliance on insulin. Taubes argues critically and passionately that doctors and medical researchers should question the established wisdom that may have enabled the current epidemic of diabetes and obesity and renew their focus on clinical trials to resolve controversies that are now a century in the making.


The library is located at 301 E. 10th St., across from Mutz Ballpark. Library staff may be reached at or (972) 544-2110, Option 9.
