Penguin Invasion!

When you come in the library, be sure to view our "collection cabinet". This month we are displaying a collection of penguins that belongs to Joyce Starett of Highlands. These penguins greet you when you come in the library and send you off penguin blessing when you leave. We would love to display one of your collections. Contact someone at the circ desk or call us at 281-426-3521 to schedule a time for you to bring it in. Thanks Joyce for sharing your darling penguins.

Harris County Libraries Serve as Warming Centers

Residents seeking shelter from the frigid temperatures can head to their local library.  All 25 Harris County branch libraries will open at 9 am on Friday, January 8 and Saturday, January 9 to serve as warming centers for the public. 

Closing hours will vary depending on the branch.

We may be little, but we are MIGHTY!

"Reader Nation" Adult Summer Reading Program for the 2009 summer was a great success at the Stratford Branch. Thanks to all of our customers who registered and completed the goal of reading 4 books. You helped your Branch receive an award! This is really your award! As shown in the picture, we received the "Greatest percentage of Adult Reader Completion" of all the 26 Branches of Harris County libraries. Being the smallest Branch in size, this shows that we may be small but we are MIGHTY. We are looking forward to this coming summer's adult reading program and hope to set new records. Remember to register and get your friends to register too!

NINETEEN MORE DAYS...

Just to remind you, the library has movies, audio books, music, stories, poems, jokes, puzzle books, crafts and recipes to help you with the seasonal celebrations. Besides Christmas materials, there are materials for Kwanzaa and Hanukkah. Stratford Branch has  a specially designated area for all of these items. This will save you time if you are in the holiday rush.
