Volunteer @ the Library!

Do you still need volunteer hours this spring?  How about volunteering at the library?  At Maud Marks, we are always looking for people to help with shelving, holds, and other special projects.  The volunteer program at the library during the school year is open to anyone in high school or older.  All you need to do if you want to help out is come and fill out an application and then join us for our short orientation session.  Our next volunteer orientation is on April 8 at 7 PM.  Turn in your volunteer application now and join us on April 8 for our orientation.

Happy Holidays everyone!  At the library, we've always celebrated this time of year in style with our annual Santa's Ranch.  Come out this Saturday 1-4 PM for food, crafts, music, facepainting, and of course a visit with the big guy himself.

At 1 PM join us as the Living Bells Handbell Choir plays holiday favorites such as "Home for the Holidays" and "Here Comes Santa Claus".  Then at 2 and 3 PM, listen to Christmas jazz played first on a trumpet then a saxaphone.

While you are here, don't forget to visit Santa's Gift Shop to pick up that last minute Christmas present!

 

Make Your Thanksgiving Table Perfect

Do you have all your Thanksgiving decorations yet?  We can help you with that.  This Tuesday at 2 PM, adults of all ages are invited to come make these beautiful but very simple Indian corn napkin rings for your Thanksgiving table.  Click here to sign up for this and other programs in November.

Many Adult Activities at the Library

Wow!  I was just looking at the calendar and we sure have a lot going on at Maud Marks over the next week!

Do you want to help out in the community?  On Saturday we have an English as a Second Language tutor training session starting at 9 AM.  In just 4 hours, we'll prepare you to teach adults from various countries English.  You don't even have to speak another language to help out; in fact, we prefer that you don't!  All we ask of you is a commitment of 1 1/2 hours per week through May.  Just think how rewarding it will be to help someone acclimate to life here in the Katy area!

Learn Something New

OK, have you ever felt like things are just moving too fast and there isn't time to learn everything you need to know?  Fear not, the Thomas A. Glazier Senior Education Center is here to the rescue.  Although they offer mostly computer classes, you can actually go there to learn much more than just that.  Learn about Medicare or wills.  Take a knitting class or catch a classic movie.  The senior education center has it all! 

Want to learn more?  Come by the library next Tuesday at 2 PM and find out all about the educational possibilities at Glazier.  The only requirements for becoming a student there are that you must be 55+ and a resident of Harris County. You can register for their services right here at the library.
