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.

To Rhyme or Not To Rhyme...

magnetic poetryApril is National Poetry Month! Every year since 1996 the Academy of American Poets has led a month long celebration of poetry. The goal is to show the American public that there is more to poetry than words penned by stuffy, long-dead poets. Our American literary heritage has always been rich in poetry, but we also have living poets writing words of inspiration, beauty and wit.
