You can use our Drive Through

Not everyone knows that we have a drive through window on the west side of the library building. To get to it, drive into the Lone Star College south entrance, turn right to turn into the library building, and come all the way down the little hill to the fountain. Turn left as if you are going into the Faculty and Staff parking lot and follow the signs for the Book Drop, taking the first right.

Last Call to get your taxes done

As we roll inexorably up to April 15th this Sunday, those of us with tax forms yet to complete are counting down the days. If you qualify for an extension and need to file an extension form (Form 4868) the library has a few copies left.
AARP Tax Aide will be in the library Saturday, April 14 and Monday, April 16 and then they roll away their computers and take a well-deserved rest. On behalf of all our customers who rely on the help of the AARP Tax Aide program to complete their income tax submission, we want to thank the faithful tax team who come in three times a week every year to help our customers. 

Marshall Stephens is Back!

Marshall Stephen's paintings were among those most fondly received by customers and staff alike as they hung in our Meeting Room, Room L 129 last year. For the month of April, Stephen's paintings are back for you to enjoy. Most of the paintings are new but he has included a couple of old favorite abstracts to amuse, confuse, and delight you. Come on by.

Save Your Trees

The majestic trees that make our area so pleasant and distinctive had a rough summer last year. Thousands died in our terrible drought. The weather wizards are telling us to expect another dry summer this year. So we have invited Barry Ward, the executive director of Trees for Houston, to come to the library on Tuesday, March 20th, and tell us all how we can save and protect our trees this summer. The lecture, from 10-11 a.m., is free, and no registration is necessary. It'll be held in Room L-129. Please join us.

Tax Forms Online

While we still receive paper copies of tax forms from the Internal Revenue Service, we expect that this won't happen indefinitely. Charity Martin, one of our great reference assistants, will help you ease into finding and using the computerized version of tax forms this Tuesday, February 28 from 7-9 pm. in the Computer Lab L216. As with all our programs, it's free. 

On a completely different note, we send our congratulations and best wishes to our sister branch, the Barbara Bush at Cypress Creek branch, celebrating its 35 birthday this weekend.
