The December to Remember "Senior Moments"

 

 

   

Seniors... are you, your parents, or your grandparents looking for a holiday party?

Registration is required so please sign up before it’s too late.             

Are You an e-Reader?

  Are you planning on buying an e-reading device for yourself or as a gift? Do you already have an e-reading device and just not sure how to download free books from the library? There are still openings for the E-Reader Class on Tuesday, November 20th from 2-4 pm.  Registration is necessary, so do not wait.  Another class will not be available until next year.

 

 

Do you know how to “Zentangle”?

              On Saturday, Nov. 10 at 2 PM there will be a Zentangle Demonstration at the Maud Marks Library. What is Zentangle, you ask?  Come and learn a fun and easy art form; a way to create beautifully structured and patterned black and white abstract images. Some believe it’s so relaxing it’s like meditation. This class is for young adults and adults of all ages.

Stop... Look... and Listen.

                             

School is back in session, but don’t let the traffic get to you. Harris County Public Library has a great listening selection.   Go to our website to find your favorite authors on CD, come in and check it out, or download it to your listening device.  These can help make your commute more enjoyable and less stressful.

Planning an e-Vacation?

            You’ve got your airplane ticket, passport, and e-reader. You’ve got your suitcase, but no room for those travel books.

A Bowling Wii Will Go...

The tournament is scheduled for Friday, August 10th, from 2-4 pm and will be held in the meeting room off the lobby. It will be lots of fun, so don’t wait to register.
