BOOK SALE THIS SATURDAY

This Saturday, from 10 am to 2 pm, you can buy gently used books at bargain prices at Tomball Library. The sale, sponsored by the Friends of the Library, will take place in the first floor meeting room--Room L 129--behind the Adult Fiction department.

The Friends of the Library is a non-profit support group that, through its fundraising efforts, funds library programs. Throughout the year the Friends operate a small book sale room off the main entrance. But this Saturday, tables and tables of fiction and non-fiction, paperbacks and hardcover books, steamy romances and boilerplate thrillers--and probably DVD's and VHS's--will be awaiting your inspection. Come and select stocking stuffers for your loved ones.

Wednesday in the Children's Dept!

 Do your children [and you] need a break from all the Thanksgiving preparations? If so, come to the Children's Department on Wednesday morning at 9:30 am for Toddlertime and 10:30 am for Preschool storytime!   Your Tomball Children's staff is thankful for all our wonderful children and their parents who spend time with us each week!

Happy Thanksgiving

Do you need graphic novels, coffee table books, DVDs, audio books, or new recipes for Thanksgiving weekend? You have until 6 pm on Wednesday. We hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and that we see you again next Monday when we re-open.

MFAH Travelling Exhibition on its way to Tomball next week

Next Tuesday, while you may be in the thick of Thanksgiving preparations, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston technicians will be here in our library setting up their new traveling exhibition, A Passion for Glass. Rene Lalique (1860-1945) was a French glass designer known for his elaborate perfume bottles, vases, clocks, jewelry, and even glass automobile ornaments. He is remembered equally for his marvelously creepy Art Nouveau jeweled insects and for his Art Deco frosted glass vases. The exhibition will be here from November 22nd to January 21st. When you get a free moment, come and enjoy it!

Veteran's Day Service

Every year customers ask us, so please pass the word along that there will be a Veteran's Day Service at the college on Saturday, November 12 from 10 a.m. to noon.  It will happen in the new Performing Arts Center right on Highway 249. You can get to it from either the north or south entrance to the college.

We, the library staff salute all of you who have served our country in wartime and peace, and you, their families who have served as well through your sacrifice and support. We are grateful.
