Thinking of Joining a Branch of the Military?

On this Veteran's Day are you thinking about joining the men and women in uniform? If so, make our Learning Express Library one of your first stops. On it you can practice all of the ASVAB tests which you will take from your recruiter.  The link is under Education and Libraries on our subject listing of Databases



Mural in entry to libraryNationally renowned local artist Johnnie Nell McRae Liliedahl passed away this last week. We are very fortunate to have a beautiful example of her work in the entry to the library. The wall mural entitled "The Shell Seekers" is the first sight which greets our customers as they enter the library. It is a lovely tribute to La Porte's life by the bay.

Mrs. Liliedahl and her talent will be missed.



Join us on Wednesday, October 28 for two fun Halloween programs. At 3:15 pm the elementary-age children will have a craft class making Halloween door hangers. Then at 4:00 ages 10-17 can compete in our "Ghoulish Games." Candy, games, and fun...what could be better?



ballotYou can pick up a sample ballot and an early voting schedule at the Library. There are several constitutional amendments to vote on November 3. However, if you choose to take advantage of early voting, it runs from October 19 through October 30. The closest early voting sites to La Porte are the Baytown Community Center 2407 Market St. 77520 or the East Harris County Activity Center 7340 Spencer Highway, Pasadena 77505.
