First notice: Artist's Date will be back!

Just to let  you know: we WILL be hosting an Artist's Date to cap off the end of our Summer Reading Program in August! Science is the theme of this year's Summer Reading Program, so we will be featuring the 'science' of drawing the figure as our Artist's Date theme.

Debra Hayden Drawings in Room L-129

Debra Hayden, having now finished her year as a teacher and having had a chance to breathe, has hung her latest set of gouache, pastel, and graphite pieces in Room L-129 opposite Malvine Wolf's collages. She is a realistic artist who tries to convey the spiritual essence of her subjects. I think you'll get a sense of that in the lovely image at left.

Malvine Wolf and Debra Hayden exhibiting in Room L-129 in June

Malvine Wolf’s precision mixed media pieces are a must-see in our meeting room this month. Malvine began working in watercolor and somewhere along the line her passionate need to explore sent her into working in collage, various water media, and sumi inks. In one piece she has written text; in another, braille is the compelling feature.

June Book Club Selections

Here’s what our book clubs are reading in June:
Afternoon Book Club (1st Tuesday, 3 pm): Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter. July’s selection is Last Days of Ptolemy Grey by Walter Mosley
Paranormal Book Club (2nd Monday, 7 pm): Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen

Quickbooks Workshop moved to College Teaching Theatre, Room E-100

Due to overwhelming popular demand, the free SCORE Quickbooks Workshop scheduled for Saturday, May 17th, has far surpassed the capacity of the library's meeting room. So we have moved it into Room E-100 of the College.

So here are the revised directions! Drive into LSC-Tomball College's south entrance, take the first right into the library, and park where you expected to park, in the library lot. Come in the front door of the library; walk through and out the back door, across the lovely patio, and into the Commons Building. Immediately turn right into the East Hall and then immediately left into the Teaching Theatre, Room E-100. See you there!

 

Learn Quickbooks this Saturday

There’s still time to register for this Saturday’s free Quickbooks for Beginners workshop! Quintin Wiggins, CEO of EQ Quickbooks, will take the mystique out of reading and understanding financial statements and show you how Quickbooks can be your partner in growing and understanding your total business. LSC-Tomball Community Library is partnering with SCORE Houston, a network of volunteers with real-world business experience dedicated to the success of entrepreneurs and small business owners. That’s Saturday May 17, from 10:00 – 12:30, in Room L-129. To register, go to www.scorehouston.org. The registration link is down the right sidebar. 

Alicia Mitchell exhibiting in Room L 129 through May

When you see Alicia Mitchell’s artwork in Room L-129 this month you’ll immediately feel her warmth and humanity. A lifelong resident of El Paso, she moved to Spring when she retired in 2001 and took up painting with a passion. She works in oils, acrylics, pastels, charcoal, colored pencil, collage, and clay; but her exhibition this month features some of her oil paintings and collages. C’mon by!
