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!
