Evelyn Meador Book Club Meeting in May

Braggin' Rights & the American West

Names like Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie, Kit Carson, Calamity Jane, Frank and Jesse James, conjure certain images in the American mind. For us, these people, who actually lived and died and left their marks, have become larger than life.  They are now a part of our American folklore right up there alongside Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill and Deadwood Dick, and live on as sources of inspiration. 

Coming Attraction

Coming soon, to a neigborhood near you - if you are anywhere in the vicinity of Seabrook, that is!

Why is it, when we see these bird motifs we automatically think seagulls? Because it's Seabrook, of course!

This is the view looking towards the teen area (on the left) and the children's activity space. The windows on the right overlook the park are and hiking / biking trails.

Where the Wild West Still Lives

The Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo is an event every Texan or “wanna be” Texan should attend at least once. It’s been an annual fixture on the Houston calendar since 1932. People come from all over to participate or partake of all the good things that happen at this event, from the rodeo itself to craft fairs, carnival rides, celebrity entertainers, and of course, good food.  But if you can’t get to the Rodeo, you can at least read some of the great books about rodeo life from our collection. Here are some adult-level, non-fiction titles where you can learn more about the cowboys and cowgirls, rodeo clowns and others we look forward to seeing every year.

Until the opening of the new building, The Evelyn Meador Book Club will hold their regular meeting in the conference room at Coffee Oasis (4650 Nasa Parkway) in Seabrook.

A Dramatic Entrance

As the library nears completion, I thought everyone might enjoy a preview. Here is a picture from the entrance (looking towards the interior doors). That's definitely something to look forward to!
