Happy Thanksgiving from us

To all of you, from all of us, Happy Thanksgiving. Although this year continues to be difficult for many, the joy and gratitude you have extended to us has been heartwarming. It's always a pleasure to serve you, and when we can also lighten your load a little, it's extra special. 

We've created a Thanksgiving tree on our Round Wall and many of our customers have expressed their thankfulness for their lives and loved ones in the form of messages on leaves. Every day the tree grows and fills out and embroiders our lobby with color . May your Thanksgiving weekend be similarly rich and joyful.

Alicia Mitchell exhibition in our Meeting Room

Alicia Mitchell has another exhibition in our meeting room this month. This time she is featuring historic collages and still lifes. The photo at left shows her with her last exhibition here. We invite you to wander through and take a look at them next time you're in the library.

Artists are welcome to reserve the meeting room and hang your paintings for a month at a time. Just phone the reference desk at 832-559-4213 to make arrangements.

Chill at the library

After you've voted today, if you need a comfortable quiet place to get away from the election madness, come to the library!  We have coffee and soda and snacks. Curl up with a good book, listen to your iPod, play on one of our free computers, put your feet up, absorb the good qi; breathe. We're open until 9:30. The election won't be decided before then. Come and hide out, hang out, chill, take a break.

We need Tutors

Our English as a Second Language programs are burgeoning. Every week at the library we hold discussion groups that provide forums for practicing speaking English, and we also offer individual tutoring sessions--also at the library--at times convenient to the tutor and the student.

We're looking for more volunteers to tutor people who want to learn to speak, read, and write English. Are you interested? If you'd like to volunteer, please give Charity Martin a call at 832-559-4200.

Register to vote!

Today, Tuesday October 9, 2012  is the last day Texans can register to vote in next month's election. We have voter registration cards here at the library at the Customer Service desk. You'll have to mail the card yourself today to get a valid postmark on that registration. As always, we're open until 9:30 tonight.
