High Meadows

Mexican Foil Art Craft

Hispanic Heritage Month is an opportunity to recognize the contributions made by Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States. It is also a time to celebrate their heritage and culture. Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15th and ends on October 15, and what better way to celebrate a culture than to explore some of their art and traditions. Come join us here at High Meadows Library on Monday September 29th at 4:00 p.m. for our Mexican Foil Art Project. Try your hand at making this beautiful traditional art and enjoy some snacks and refreshments as well. 

 

After school, the libary's cool.

 

Join us Wednesdays and Thursdays after school for TeenTime. Play board games, play with the wii, or just hang out with friends. We’ll see you in the meeting room.

Spread the Word—Literally. Become a Volunteer Literacy Tutor

If you are visiting this website, it’s a good bet that you know reading’s fundamental value to your day-to-day life. Odds are equally likely that you cannot imagine life without it. But it is a sad fact that 1 in 5 Texans--your neighbors--don’t have to imagine; they are living it—every hour of every day.

Harris County Public Library has long been committed to providing basic literacy classes to all those who want them, but we cannot do that without a team of dedicated volunteer tutors.  On Friday, March 7 at High Meadows Branch Library, we will be holding a tutor training workshop. No teaching experience needed.
