Tutors Needed!

We need volunteer English as a Second Language tutors! You may know that we have an ongoing ESL and English literacy program here at the library. Newcomers to our country are paired with community volunteers and have lessons at the library at mutually convenient times. You don't have to speak another language to become a tutor; we provide learning materials, training, and ongoing support for you, and you get the immense satisfaction that comes from having an intense encounter with a person from another culture who is learning to embrace ours. If you're interested in volunteering, call Suellen at 832-559-4220. 

All Aboard!

  The Choo Choo Club begins Thursday, September 18th at 1:30 pm. Work with your child each week as they create, discover and become ready readers at this early literacy program!  Required registration begins one week in advance of each session and is limited to 15 children (ages 3-5) and their parents.  *registration for Sept. 18th begins on September 11th.  Call 832-559-4235 for more information and to register.

 

Laura Matson Paintings in Room L-129

This month we’re delighted to feature the paintings of one of our own staff members, Circulation Assistant Laura Matson. Laura occasionally designs some of our book displays, but on her off hours she also experiments freely in a number of media. Laura enjoys drawing and painting landscapes and natural subjects, as well as abstracts. Come in and see her work!
