National Autism Awareness Month

In recognition of World Autism Awareness Day, Tuesday, April 2, LSC Tomball Community Library will “Light it up Blue“.

The staff will be wearing blue and if you are wearing blue too you will receive one of our hand-crafted blue puzzle pieces while supplies last. The puzzle piece was first created in 1963 and is the international symbol for autism. The National Autism Society notes that the puzzle pattern reflects the mystery and complexity of the autism spectrum. Join us this month as we acknowledge and raise awareness about autism. Be sure to come see the beautiful blue lights around the first floor Reference Desk!

The Month of March Madness

Why do we love the month of March?

We have so many events and several holidays. It may seem hard to keep up. Even the term "March Madness" immediately makes one think of basketball and rightly so, the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament is known as March Madness.  However, there are numerous other reasons to love the month of March. A few of the big ones are The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, the start of Spring, Mardi Gras and of course, St. Patrick's Day.

Want to read about starting a Spring garden, the origins of Mardi Gras, why rodeo's are so popular or who is St. Patrick exactly and why do we have a day in his honor?
