1001 Books Before Kindergarten!

Studies have shown that families who start reading aloud to their children at birth help to strengthen their language skills and build their vocabulary – two important tools for beginning to learn to read when they enter Kindergarten.
This new early literacy program is designed to help ready your child for Kindergarten. It sounds like a lot of books, but if you read only three books a day, you will be done in just about a year!
Come to the Children’s Reference desk and get a pre-printed book log (each log is for 100 books)
Color in one star for each book your child listens to. (story time books count!)
When you complete a log, bring it to the Children’s Reference desk to have it stamped and dated.
Continue on with each book log until your child has completed the program!
Book logs can also be downloaded from home at www.hcpl.net

Call 832-559-4235 for more information.  Happy Reading!

*There is no registration or online book logging.

Grace Hessman, Landscape Artist


Throughout February you have the pleasure of viewing the pastel paintings of landscape artist Grace Hessman in our meeting room, Room L-129. She’s a 'plein air' painter, which means she doesn’t paint from reference photos in her cozy air-conditioned home studio. It means she plunks her easel down in the shifting soils of west Texas or beach Florida or the Oregon forest, with boots on to protect herself from cactus spines and driving heat and morning chills, to see, feel, and smell each nuance of the landscape she’s passionate about capturing on paper. When you see her work, I think you’ll catch that spirit. That’s Room L-129; throughout February.

Little Amigos Story Time!

Starting this Tuesday, February 4th at 9:30 am, the Children's Area is excited to present this new weekly story time for children ages 3 - 5.  Presented in  English, this program will give children exposure to the Spanish language by teaching one word in Spanish each week!  Call 832-559-4235 for more information!
