Storytime Puppet Show

On Wednesday, September 28 at the 11:15 am preschool story time, Charity and Judy will  entertain the kids with a puppet show. The puppets we will be performing with  were bought with funds from the Friends of the Maud Marks Library. So while you  are here, check out the used books for sale or bring a few to donate.

 

 

Children's Book Series

So, your kid comes come from school one day and ask you if you could check at the library for a Candy Apple book or maybe a My Weird School Daze book or maybe a My Sister the Vampire book and  they don't know the author. What do you do? Have no fear. Stop by one of the information desks and ask one of us. We updated our children's series section and it should be much easier to find those titles. Instead of being in author alphabetical order, they are in order according to the title of the series. Hopefully this will make it easier to find.

Summer Reading Program Success

Thanks to all the readers and volunteers that participated in the 2011 Summer Reading Program.  We had a very successful turnout  and lots of kids will be going back to school having kept up with their reading skills.

Who Said You Can't Eat at the Library?

Domino"s Pizza supplied fun and lots of pizza for all the kids during one of our weekly afternoon adventures.

The Summer Reading Desk is Open for Business

 

Max, and other Maud Marks volunteers are hoping you keep them busy this summer with your reading progress. Remember, you still have another month to record and claim your certificate and free book. If you have already done so, keep reading and recording.  Max wants to put your name on the wall. Ribbons are rewarded after you complete 50 books or 500 pages/minutes.          

Dogs in need of a good home

Hey kids, summer is here and our reading program runs June 3 -Aug 6.

Each week we are having a drawing to win one of these adorable dogs. All you have to do is come into the library and fill out an entry form with your name and phone number. If we pull your name, we will call you. One entry per day, please. Be sure to check out our weekly afternoon adventures and don't forget to  join the summer reading program. It's going to be a great summer! See you soon!

Attention Home-Schooled Elementary Age Students

The Houston Grand Opera has an Opera-to-Go performance of The Dog Who Sang at the Opera  scheduled for Friday, Feb. 18 at 2:30 pm. This program is geared for elementary students. We thought KISD was having an off day when we scheduled this event, but now it is a make-up day.
