So Many Displays!

 This month, the library has many displays for you to enjoy!  You can't miss the beautiful, eye catching African American Heritage Month display on the round wall.  We think you'll agree that words really do have power as you enjoy quotes from influential African American's, and books on the arts, sports and history.  The Winter Olympics are coming!  Enjoy books, trivia and facts about the Olympics on the pyramid closest to the Children's area.  Once the games get underway, we'll  post a daily tally of all the medals won by our USA athletes! The new Bluebonnet award books are out.  You'll find them on the Texas flag themed pyramid display at the entrance to the Children's area.  Saturday, February 3rd is Take your Child to the Library Day. The first pyramid at the entrance to the library is dedicated to this special day.  And, we certainly haven't forgotten the big event of the month - Valentines day!  We hope you enjoy Library Lovers Month by selecting a book from our Valentines book pyramid.  You can also leave words of love on the large pole near the circulation desk.  Near the entrance to the Children's Area, you can choose some photo props and take and post pictures to FB, Twitter and Instagram.  Don't forget to use the hashtag "ilovemylibrary" or "tomballlibrary".  And, last but not least, the Friends of the Tomball Library are having a "romance" book sale all month long. Each bag of books is $2 and all proceeds go directly to library programming and events!  So many reasons to love your Library all month long!

Find plants that are Texas Superstars

Learn about Texas A&M AgriLife’s Texas Superstar Plants program, which provides information about a variety of plants you can grow in Texas, from annuals and perennials to vegetables and fruit trees. Paul Winski, County Extension Agent in the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension program, will help you learn more about this resource and answer other questions about gardening in our area on Saturday, February 10 at 10:30 a.m. The Texas Superstar Plants program selects plants that have been proven to grow well here and are considered attractive for various reasons (such as ornamental value or providing fruit) by horticulturists and consumers.
