If so, Harris County Public Library has a volunteer opportunity for you: become an English-as-a-Second-Language tutor! No teaching experience is necessary. We provide the materials and space at the library to meet with students. All you need is a desire to help your neighbors and 1½ to 2 hours per week of your own choosing.

Author Visit - Gary L. Stewart

On Thursday, August 28th, at 7:00 PM, the library will be pleased to host national bestselling author Gary L. Stewart.  Mr. Stewart is the author of "The Most Dangerous Animal of All," published early this year.  Mr. Stewart's book, written along with Susan Mustafa, chronicles his decade-long search for his birth parents, which led him to a chilling conclusion about his father and potential connection with the Zodiac Killer.  

This event is sponsored by the Friends of Freeman Library.  Schroeder's Book Haven, in League City, will provide copies of Mr. Stewart's book for sale.
