THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!

Thank you for helping to make the 4th Annual Hispanic Heritage Festval held at the North Channel Branch Library such a success! We estimate that we saw over 1,000 children and adults this past Saturday! Fun was had by all: face painting and craft tables were especially popular! Ballet Folklorico danced, M.E.C.A. Mariachis sang and played, Happy the Clown entertained while Texas Edition performed and provided the sound system for our spectacular! A special thank you, also, to the local businesses who supported us and made this Festival come to life! And thank you's also to the Harris County Sheriff's Dept. for bringing Gizmo the Robot and to Bay Star Ambulance for letting the kids see the inside of their vehicle.

Start your own business!

Are you thinking about starting your own business?  Then don't miss our Small Business Workshop to be held on Monday, September 28th at 6 pm.  The San Jacinto College Small Business Development Center will host this free and informative session.  Don't miss out on this great opportunity!

VOLUNTEER @ YOUR LIBRARY

Need hours for Honor Society or for a class assignment? Consider volunteering at the North Channel Branch Library! We need help to shelve all the books and materials that come back each day at this busy library. We accept volunteers from middle and high schools. We are also glad to accept adult volunteers of all ages! Shelving books is a really good upper body workout--and there is no monthly gym membership fee! Plus we will need many volunteers to help us prepare for and put on the Hispanic Heritage Festival on Saturday, September 26th. See our website for the volunteer application form--or stop by the Front Desk and we will be glad to give you a copy!
