Construction update @ Galena Park

Galena Park is starting to look different now!  We took some pictures so you can start to track your library's progress.  Check out the inside shot of the library.  Sure looks different with no books or shelves up!  And our new computer lab is taking shape with the walls up and the roof in progress.  We hope you are as excited about these changes as we are!  Check back for more updates as this project moves along.  And don't forget, you can still visit any Harris County Library branch for your library needs, like our nearby Jacinto City Branch on Akron and North Channel Branch on Wallisville Road.

Hey Diddle Diddle

It's time for another animated flannel board!  This week we are featuring a short animated version of the classic Mother Goose  nursery rhyme, Hey Diddle Diddle.

Hey, diddle, diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon;
The little dog laughed
To see such sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.
