World Book Online for KIds

When I was growing up, and when my kids were young,  the World Book Encyclopedia was sold door to door. It was a huge expense to purchase a set, but  parents thought this was the best investment in their child's education. Well  parents guess what? You don't have to dish out hundreds of dollars anymore. The World Book Encyclopedia is available thru our databases and its better then ever. World Book Online for KIds as lots of colorful pages, videos, games and activities will make learning fun and exciting. And the  best part is, all you need is a library card. 

Another Brick Wall?

 Did you ever feel like no matter how hard you try to find an answer to a particular question, you run into a brick wall?  Maybe the answer is at the library. We have access to many databases with current information on just about anything. Its worth a try. Give us a call or stop by and let us help you avoid that brick wall. 

Are You a Jon Hamm Fan?

 If so then get ready, the Mad Men Season 5 debuts with a two hour premiere on Sunday, March 25. If you haven't been watching this awarding winning AMC series don't despair,  the Harris County Public Library owns seasons one- four on DVD. There is plenty of time to catch up. 

Margaret and her Mom

With all the presents and decorations put away its good to get back to a weekly routine of going to the library and checking out books.  Margaret and her mom are looking for princess books, a favorite of Margaret. 

What Would We Do Without Our Friends?

 Charlotte Brooks and Glenda Lindsay, two very special people, are celebrating their birthdays in early December. Their endless help with our book sales make it possible for us to have all the wonderful programs we offer.  Charlotte and Glenda are also on the Friends of Maud Marks Library board. Thanks Charlotte and Glenda for all your support and  we hope you have  wonderful birthdays. :)

Over the River and Through the Woods
