Free Money!!!

Do I have your attention yet?!

Yes, I really am talking about free money for you if your home was damaged in Hurricane Ike.  Let's face it, FEMA and insurance payment may not have been enough.  Many people still had to pay quite a bit of money out of pocket to fix their fences, roofs, walls, floors, and other repairs to their homes.  Did you know that you could get all of that money back?

Harris County Recovers is part of the Harris County Homeowner Disaster Recovery program designed to provide financial assistance to homeowners whose property was damaged by Hurricane Ike.  They are here to provide money to pay those massive repair bills.  Even if you have already spent your own money, you may qualify for a reimbursement.

Learn more about this valuable program next week on Thursday, December 3 at 7 PM here at the library.

The Value of a Dollar

The cost of an Individual membership to the Friends of the Maud Marks Library- $10.00

The cost of a hardback adult book at a Friends of the Maud Marks Library Book Sale- $1.00

The cost of a paperback children's book at a Friends of the Maud Marks Library Book Sale- $.25

The smile on a child's face while attending a Maud Marks Library program- PRICELESS

We've all seen the commercials on television; a dollar just doesn't buy you much nowadays.  But, did you know that buying a book at a Friends of the Maud Marks Library Book Sale can provide so much more?  Every month, the Friends of the Maud Marks Library take the money raise through our used book sales and give it to the library to pay for craft programs, storytimes, afterschool teen programs, summer reading programs, cultural events, and so much more.

What Kind of Reader Are You?

Do you enjoy reading and discussing books?  Are you looking for a group of people who love books just as much as you do?  The Maud Marks Library has book clubs for any taste and schedule.  We host 3 book clubs monthly and always love to discuss books with a willing customer....

Our Terrific Teens!

At the Maud Marks Library, we sure do love our junior high students.  In fact, we think we have the most creative teenagers at our branch.

On Tuesday, we asked participants in our afterschool program, Teen Time, to design posters advertising our upcoming food drive.  Every year in early December, the Maud Marks Library teams up with Channel 13 and Katy Christian Ministries to collect non-perishable food items for needy familes in the Katy area.  All the food collected stays right here in Katy.

Here is just an example of the very cool posters the teens created.  Click here to see more and don't forget to bring your non-perishable food item to the Maud Marks Library by Friday, December 4, 2009!

Be Your Own Mechanic

Everyone knows how expensive it is to take a car to a mechanic when it breaks down.  You can always go to the library and check out one of the Chilton's Repair Manuals, but those are big and bulky and what happens when the library doesn't have the manual for your car.  Now WHAT????!!!!

Here at the Maud Marks Library, we have the answer to your automotive problems.  Did you know that the Harris County Public Library has all that same information in an easy to access database?  On Saturday at 10 AM we will be hosting a class to teach you how to use the Chilton's Online Database.  Come and find all the diagrams and information you need to keep your car running like new.

Seating is limited so click here to register.
