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.

Celebrate the African American Heritage!

 (C) 2014 http://static.tumblr.com/oebi3un/E9Sm11is4/wicb_jazz.jpg

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.

Interlibrary Loans

      Even though Harris County Public Library has over 2 million items available, there are a few we do not have. That’s why we offer a service called Interlibrary Loans. We can request a book or audio book for you from other libraries in the country. It could take a week or longer for the book to arrive so “patience is a virtue.” However, it is well worth the wait for a book that may no longer be available at your local library. Browse our catalog first to make sure we do not have it, and check that it is at least 6 months post publication.  Then you can request it yourself
