Luck o' the Irish

  Here it is March already and the world is starting to turn green.  Reminds me of the Emerald Isle! Almost. Let's give the green a big boost by making some green shamrock coasters for St.

Live a Healthy Life

With all the health and nutrition information out there, it can be confusing to figure out how to choose a balanced, healthy diet.  Why, just this week I read 2 articles (both dated this week) about eggs.  One article told me eggs were not as healthy as the Egg Council claims.  Another article told me that eggs were not as unhealthy as previously thought.  What are we supposed to think?

Well, at the Maud Marks Library, we want to help!  Next Saturday, March 8 at 2 PM, Jan Flewelling, a nurse with Houston Methodist will be here to help straighten out all that information.  She'll be discussing a holistic approach to healthy living including eating right, exercising, and other aspects of living your best life.

Friends… a Great Beginning!

                       

"A snowball in the face is surely the perfect beginning to a lasting friendship.”
                                                           ― Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

We didn’t get to make any snowballs this winter, but you can still make a lasting friendship. The Friends of the Maud Marks Library are having their book sale this Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014, from 10 am – 4 pm. (No preview Friday for members) Books, audiobooks, CD’s, DVD’s, magazines and more will be available for purchase in our meeting room off the lobby. Books make great gifts and paperbacks are perfect for traveling. No worries about leaving it behind in the hotel room or by the pool. All proceeds from the book sale benefit the library. So come and see what you can find. And while you are here, ask how you can join the Friends group and begin a new friendship.

Celebrate the African American Heritage!

This year, the Maud Marks Library has decided to go BIG in celebrating the African American Heritage.  How big?  Jazz Education, Inc. will be here on Friday at 1 PM to play some jazz music perfect for dancing.  Afterwards, we'll make some African masks, jazz collages, and even work together to turn one wall in the children's section into a giant Freedom Quilt.  While working on our projects, we'll munch on food important to African American history.  Join us as we celebrate the contributions of the African American culture.
