BOOK SALE SOON!

Please consider this your advance notice. For the first time ever, our Friends of the Library are going to have a book sale!

The Friends of the Library raise funds that support our summer reading programs and other programs throughout the year. Mostly they do this by selling books donated by our customers. This year, because of  your generosity, the Friends have more books than will fit in their little room off the front entrance. So--on the first Saturday in December, when thoughts of many will be turning to stocking stuffers, books at inexpensive prices will be laid out for you to buy.

The rumor is that the sale will take place between 10 am and 2 pm; we'll firm that up closer to the date.

 

HANGERS AND HOSIERY...OH MY!

Ever wonder what to do with that closet full of wire hangers and those bags of old hosiery in your closet?  Well, wonder no more. This month at Art Explorers, we will take those 2 common household "collectibles" and turn them into works of sculptural art!    Your child will learn about the history of modern/contemporary art and then twist a hanger into a free form design, stretch a nylon hose over it and paint it!  This program will meet on Tuesday, November 8th at 4:30 pm and Monday, November 14th at 1:00 pm in the Children's Department.  Each session is limited to 20 children (ages 2nd - 6th grade).  Call 832-559-4235!

Join a library Book Club

Do you enjoy discussing with others the books that you read? Perhaps you'd enjoy participating in one of our book clubs.

The groups meet once a month, some in the evenings, some in the afternoons, to discuss selected titles in their favorite genres. There's no charge, no registration, no obligation to come to every meeting; just good discussions and light refreshments.
