Hurry! Hurry! Summer Reading Programs Ends Saturday, August 7!

It's the last week of the summer reading program. If you've finished your Reading Log, you can stop by the Children's Reference Desk on the first floor in the Children's Area to get your certificate and choose your free book. Then come and join the party, Monday, August 9, at 7 pm. We'll have ice cream, snacks, games, and face painting.

Two More Weeks of the Summer Reading Club!

Kids, have you received your Summer Reading Club Certificate? Remember if you registered either on-line at our website (www.hcpl.net) or in person between June 4 and August 7, and have completed reading either 10 books or 500 pages, you can get your certificate and a free book (while supplies last).

Don't forget to mark your calendars for the end of Summer Reading Club party, Monday, August 9 at 7 pm. This party is for the whole family with snacks and games!

Kingwood and LEED Certification

           

Kingwood Library just received our LEED Silver Certification. LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) is a recognized green building certification. To receive the Silver Certification, a building must earn 50+ points out of 100 points. It focuses on five major areas: sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy & atmosphere, materials & resources, and indoor environmental quality. We recycle and there are cans around so customers can join in helping us. The library is in a green belt to provide a connection to nature and reduce the heat island effect. The roof is white to reduce the amount of heat that enters the building, important in Texas summers.
