New Carpet in the Library

New carpetWe're getting closer to the end of our renovation project!  Check out our new carpeting.  It features lots of colors and complements our new wall color very nicely!  Your Galena Park library will be open soon.  In the meantime, don't forget that the Summer Reading Program for kids, teens and adults will begin on June 4th.  You will be able to sign up at any Harris County Library or online at the library website.

Five Green and Speckled Frogs...

...sat on a speckled log, eating some most delicious bugs. Yum! Yum! 

This week we are featuring another flannel board song.  We hope you enjoy watching "5 Green and Specked Frogs" but be warned.   The tune has a way of sticking in your head all day long!

 

 

 

 

Mouse Paint with Para Los Ninos

The North Channel Library had a visit this morning from the Children's Museum of Houston as they presented their Para Los Ninos program.  In this session, we read Mouse Paint by Ellen Stoll Walsh and then mixed and created our own color creations!  Next week we will be back to our regular Tuesday morning Toddler Time storytime geared toward children&nb

New color on the walls!

It's sunny outside and sunny inside at Galena Park!  Our walls are being painted a bright and happy yellow.  The wall behind our circulation desk and the wall in the children's department will stand out now that they are a new color.  We can't wait for you to see your library, but don't forget you can always visit our other library branches like our Jacinto City and North Channel branches.

New outside wall for computer lab

Our renovations are moving along!  The outside of our new computer lab is almost complete with the brick wall almost complete.  Soon it will be ready to start work on the inside.  Don't forget to visit us at our other Harris County branches while we wait for our renovations to be completed!

Tween Time Fun @ North Channel!

Wondering what Tween Time is all about?  It's about all kinds of things!  Last week we made geometric sculptures out of straws and paper clips while enjoying delicious snacks.  Next month, who knows what we'll be doing.  It could be crafts or science experiments or cooking or a mystery activity!  You'll have to come to our next Tween Time program on Wednesday, April 25th at 4:30 pm to find out!

Inside the computer lab

Last week we showed  you a picture of the outside of our new computer lab.  Today, we have a photograph tracking the progress inside our new computer lab.  It's mostly just wood framing now, but soon it will full of new computers for your use!  Don't forget that while Galena Park library is closed you can visit any other Harris County Library branch, such as our Jacinto City or North Channel branches.

Tween Time @ the library

Hey tweens, looking for a book club just for you?  This Wednesday, March 28th at 4:30pm, bring your latest favorite read and enjoy some light refreshments and socializing! Occasional book related crafts/activities or cooking.  See you there!

One roof up, one ceiling down

Renovations continue at the Galena Park Library.  As you can see, the roof is taking shape on our new computer lab.  And it's just in time with all the wet weather we've been having!  While a new room goes up, an old ceiling comes down.  You can see in the photo of our front entryway that we are now missing our old ceiling tiles.  Coming soon, new ceiling tiles!  Check back to catch up on our progress, and don't forget to visit our other library branches in Jacinto City or our North Channel Branch on Wallisville Road.
