Spring Branch-Memorial Library--The Page Turners

Defending JacobTitle to be discussed: Defending Jacob by William Landay.  Date of meeting: Tuesday, May 12, 6:30 pm.  Summary: "Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney in his suburban Massachusetts county for more than twenty years. When a shocking crime shatters his New England town, Andy is blindsided by what happens next: his fourteen-year-old son is charged with the murder of a fellow student. As the crisis reveals how little a father knows about his son, Andy will face a trial of his own--between loyalty and justice, between truth and allegation, between a past he's tried to bury and a future he cannot conceive."

Artist's Date: a collage

In the afternoon Bill Epps gave two demonstrations; how to draw perspective and how to paint an under-painting for your watercolor painting.

1001 Books before Kindergarten

In January 2014, Harris County Public Library launched a new early literacy program: 1001 Books before Kindergarten. In March of 2015, Claire, a Clear Lake City – County Freeman Branch Library customer, reached the 1001 book mark becoming the first child to complete the program! Congratulations, Claire and family!

Claire reached the goal fairly quickly, but a more leisurely pace is just as good. If your child reads one book a day, s/he will reach 1001 books in under three years. The program seeks to improve important reading skills, but even more, it’s about the time spent together reading for the sheer pleasure it brings.
