2012 Adult Summer Reading Program Winner

TOM ASRP Winner 2012

Congratulations to Gayle Jackson, winner of one of the Adult Summer Reading Program prizes! Gayle was randomly selected from the Lone Star College-Tomball Community Library customers who completed and logged their books in the 2012 Adult Summer Reading Program. A familiar face at the library, Gayle (seen at left with her daughter) is an enthusiastic reader, a member of two book clubs, and a faithful supporter of the library and its employees.

2012 Primetime Emmy Nominations: Drama

Below, I have listed all the nominees in the Drama categories. Who would you like to win?...
