What Are Your Plan for this Weekend? I Have an Idea...

You may have activities planned for Spring Break but what about for this weekend? Help your child develop an appreciation for art by attending the Museum of Fine Arts Houston!

On Saturdays and Sundays, children ages 6 to 18 will be provided  free general admission to the  Museum of Fine Arts Houston  with any public library card! 

How do I get a Library Card?

Bubble Blast Fun @ North Channel Library

bubblesThis Wednesday, March 13th, take a break with us and enjoy a Bubble Extravaganza! We'll be in the "backyard" of the library to make giant bubbles in a variety of shapes! All materials supplied. The fun starts at 2:30 pm. See you there!

Spring Break Movie Extravaganza

Come join us for Spring Break Movie Extravaganza. We will be showing a movie Monday 3/11, Wednesday 3/13 and Thursday 3/14 at 3:00 PM. Kids bring your snacks, pillows, blankets or whatever you need to enjoy these popular children’s movies. Please call the library 713-450-0982 for movie titles. 

Spring Break Volunteers


Need some volunteer hours over Spring Break? We have a short term project (1 week) needing a lot of volunteer hours. You can help the library by volunteering  to help us during Patron Count week, March 11-16. We need a volunteer to sit at a table in our lobby every hour the library is open to the public to count each person who enters. This is a perfect opportunity for high school students needing service hours for NHS or other organizations.
