Ronald McDonald Jokes His Way Through Jacinto City

Ronald McDonald won over his audience at Jacinto City Library on Wednesday, August 5 with his wacky jokes and marvelous magic tricks. The children smiled and laughed as he performed one goofy act after another. The parents attending hardly resisted Ronald McDonald’s entertaining silliness and joined their children in their amusement of the beloved mascot. With this finishing performance we say good bye to the Wednesday morning story time programs at Jacinto City. Those who participated in our Summer Reading Program please be sure to turn in all book logs before the end of the week!

Adult SRP Party at JC!

Jacinto City had a record number of Adult Summer Reading Program sign ups this year.  We had 43 adults sign up this year!  Many of the adults didn't know HCPL had an SRP for them. Thanks to the Circulation Staff at our branch, they learned about the program.  To celebrate this milestone, we had a party for the all the adults who participated in this year's program.  Everyone was excited to come to the party and meet the other adults who had signed up for the program.  They thought it was great to have a program of their own and can't wait for next summer's program!
