Programs range from discussions of books by African American authors to learning to play the ancient strategy game Mancala. You'll learn about astronauts, inventors, soldiers, scientists, performers and artists--the whole gamut of the African American experience.

Storytimes and More Coming Soon to Lone Star College - Creekside Center

In January 2019, as part of its long-standing partnership with Harris County Precinct 4 and Lone Star College - Tomball, Harris County Public Library will begin to introduce some public library services to the Creekside community at the LSC – Creekside Center campus. To meet community demand, the project’s initial focus will be early literacy. Along with a small collection of children’s books, there will be two story times each Monday at Creekside Center. One for toddlers and one for preschool-age children. Each session will feature stories, songs, rhymes and an occasional craft activity.

Story times will begin Monday, January 28, 2019. Additional public library services will be phased in over time.

Santa Claus Is Coming to LSC - Creekside Center (and So Are Storytimes in January).

Santa Visit to Creekside Center Flier

Join us on December 5 at 6:30 for a free, fun family event featuring Santa, refreshments and an exciting announcement for families with small children in the Creekside community. Admission is Free. Register here.
