AARP Tax Help - Different Location for 2010

For the first time in more years than I care to remember Kingwood Branch is not the location for the AARP Tax Help in the Kingwood area.  Due to our move to the new location during the tax preparation time period, AARP will be at the Kingwood First Baptist Church located at 3500 Woodland Hills this year.  The date and times will be the same - each Wednesday from now until April 14th, from 10 AM until 1:30 PM. 

Many of these volunteers have been coming to the Kingwood Branch Library with the AARP Tax Help group for more than a dozen years.  I feel like a part of the family didn't come for the annual visit!

We do still have some tax forms and publications available; they are in the foyer of the library right by the meeting room entrance. 


The Hideout! Just for Teens!

Children's Activity Room in the new Library!

Quiet Room: Where "Shhhhh" is Appropriate!

A feature in the new Kingwood Branch Library that many of our customers will appreciate is the Quiet Room. Its function will be exactly what the name implies - a quiet place to work or study.

As our world has changed, so has the public library. Gone are the days when you could hear a pin drop. Libraries are now vibrant, active places, where ESL classes, children's programming, meetings of a local community associations and teenagers working on a school project might be happening all at the same time. Traffic in libraries has increased, as well, with more and more people not only picking up books, DVDs, CDs and audio books or searching for something interesting to check out, but also socializing with friends and neighbors.


Santa Claus is Coming to the Kingwood Branch Library!

Please join us at the Kingwood Library Annual Holiday Open House.  Continual holiday movies will run all day with light refreshments being offered starting at 6 PM.  Everyone is invited!
