Tomball's Summer Reading Program Draw Winners

“Better luck next year!” she mused when, at the end of last summer, she discovered that she hadn’t won any HCPL Summer Reading Program prizes. Better luck indeed: LSC-Tomball Community Library customer Brandi Henri’s name was randomly drawn as one of the e-reader winners in this year’s Summer Reading Program prize draw. The Harris County Friends Council awarded her with a Kindle Paperwhite.  She is delighted that she won’t have to borrow her husband’s iPad anymore; now she has an e-reader of her own—which ironically, we presented to her on her wedding anniversary. Good fortune all round.
Brandi and her 3 year old daughter, Olivia, are prolific readers. They were thrilled that during one visit to the library this summer they hit the 75-item HCPL checkout ceiling. Brandi keeps track of what she reads on Goodreads and checks their book ratings for recommendations. Her personal summer favorites? The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, There’s No Place Like Here by Cecelia Ahern, and Elizabeth Joy Arnold’s The Book of Secrets.
Our Tomball branch prize, a $30 Amazon.com gift card, was won by Carolyn Austin of Lufkin, TX. Ms. Austin has a personal tie with this library branch in that her daughter Jennifer is one of the librarians here. Her summer favorite was The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.

Library Lock In - Need Permission Slips Returned

We're about halfway through Summer Reading and getting closer to our First Ever Library Lock In on August 9th!  I've had quite a few permission slips picked up, but not many returned.  Permission slips need to be returned by June July 29th so that we can have the right amount of supplies and food.  If enough permission slips have not been returned by June  July 29th, the program will have to be canceled due to a lack of interest.  frown  Space is limited for this program, and will be based on the first permission slips returned.  This program is for teens ages 12-18.  Questions?  Please call Leanne, YA Librarian, 281-360-6804

Pepperoni and Worms Please!!! Monday, July 1st @ 3:30 pm

* Free Tickets Required

Tracing the origins of pizza as an example, this hands-on presentation illustrates the importance of "dirt" to kids, showing that we would all starve without healthy soil. We use hand puppets, pizza ingredients, and tubs of compost with live earthworms, beetles, & snails to prove our points. We finish up with live, dirt-loving box turtles. This will be a fun hands on program for children.

Todays program will require tickets.
