Library and college staff members, as well as generous community members, have created stunning displays over such diverse subjects as Star Wars memorabilia, antique dolls, hand-painted porcelain, Renaissance weaponry, and artifacts from India. There are still a few days to stop by and see this month’s display, which features cameras and other photography paraphernalia through the decades.

We are currently looking for unique collections to fill the display case during the summer and fall months. If you would be interested in displaying a collect...

Holocaust Speaker at the Tomball Library

Holocaust Memorial in BostonThis year is the 65th anniversary of the end of World War II and the liberation of concentration camps across Europe. For those who lived through it, 65 years doesn’t seem that long ago. For those born after the war, 65 years is a lifetime. Shortly after the war ended, Holocaust Remembrance Day was established to remind people of the atrocities committed during the Holocaust.

This year Holocaust Remembrance Day was Sunday, April 11. In honor of the day, the Library welcomes Lili Gordon, a child survivor of the Holocaust. Ms. Gordon will be speaking about her experiences during the war on Thursday, April 29 at 1:00 pm in the first floor Meeting Room (L129). Please join us for this special event.
