Computer Basics Class

Does your computer confuse you? Sometimes even intimidate you?  Well, help is here!  Here at Maud Marks Library anyway. Next Tuesday, August 26th at 10 am our Computer Lab class will be featuring Computer Basics.  Learn basic terminology, how to start a computer and mastering the Windows environment.  A great class to get you started.  Then come back (or stick around) for the 1 pm class on Basic eMailing.  Would you like to set up an email account, but don't know where to start? Come to the library and learn how to set up an account, send an email, how to attach documents and more.  These two classes are sure to help you "take control" or at least make you more comfortable using your computer.  Don't miss these classes if your computer has the upper hand in your house!  Registration is required so call 281-492-8592 to reserve you spot.  Hope to see you there.

Storytime Shake-up

We are shaking up the times and days of our weekly storytimes. Starting in September, the Pat-a-Cake Infant program will be on Tuesdays at 10:15 and 11:15 AM and the Toddler Time will be on Thursdays at 10:15 and 11:15 AM. There will not be a toddler program on Wednesday but, we will be offering a new pre-school program at 11:15 AM that includes science and sensory activities. The regular preschool storytime will be at 10:15 AM . If it all sounds a bit confusing give us a call or stop by for a monthly schedule of events. You don't want to miss a thing.

Beautiful Garden, Little Water

In Houston, we understand hot and dry.  Since this drought began, it seems the weather is always hot and dry.  We've learned to live with it, but what about our lawns?  Harris County Master Gardeners has a solution for that!  Join us this Saturday for our Green Thumb Gardening Series as we discuss water star gardens.  Learn which plants conserve water and how to water for maximum benefit.  Lets keep our lawns and gardens green throughout the hot month of August and longer as we head into the fall.

Come Check Out Katy MakerSpace

Katy MakerSpace will be here tonight at 7 PM for their monthly presentation and boy do they have a surprise for you!  I just found this tweet from the founder of Katy MakerSpace, Harry Krueger, " I'm hanging out with the guys over at BuildYourCNC this afternoon to put together a demo unit that we will be bringing to our library meetup tonight."  Come out and join us for this very special meeting.

What Do You See in the Night Sky?

            Are you interested in what you see when you look up in the night sky? The Houston Astronomical Society will be at the library Aug. 5, 2014, from 7:00 - 9:00 pm telling us about what “they” know about what “they” can see. You can ask questions and learn a lot, so come on over to the library and meet us in the meeting room at the Maud Marks Library, Katy, TX.
