The Evelyn Meador Library, a Harris County Public Library, is pleased to announce a reception for local artist Gwendolyn Brown-Bailey on Monday, June 17 at 6 pm in the library’s meeting room.  A curated selection of her beautiful seafaring-inspired water colors are on display in the meeting room.  Many of the pieces are multimedia, featuring images of lighthouses and ships as well as other marine scenery superimposed on old navigation charts.  Her artwork reflects a love of painting married with a life-long passion for the sea.

A Time to Remember - and give thanks.

The cost of freedom is never cheap. The privilege to read, to learn, to be educated, has often been paid for in blood.

Iaido, or Iaijutsu is the art of drawing the Japanese sword. It was one of the Japanese martial disciplines paramount in the education of the classical warrior (samurai). Join us on May 4 as Emily Egan Sensei of Clear Lake Iaido (Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu), and Ash Welborn (Shin Shin Ryu Iaijutsu) demonstrate some of their different schools' unique styles as the Evelyn Meador Library celebrates Asian American History Month! The demonstration will start in the meeting room at 1pm.
