Harvey

A big storm named Harvey is headed to the Texas Gulf coast. The Houston area is poised for heavy rain and flooding. Make sure you are prepared with an emergeny kit. Also, stop by the Kingwood Library and stock up on some books! Inclement weather can be a good time to catch up on some reading. Here are some book recommendations from Penguin India blog.

We'll keep you posted about any library closures if they are needed. Stay safe everyone!

Little Buddies Needed!

Hello everyone. In my previous post, I discussed the Book Buddies program here at Kingwood Library and our need for adult volunteeers to read to children. I am happy to announce we have enough adult volunteers. However, at this point we don't have enough children signed up! We now need Little Buddy volunteers!

Parents, if you have Little Buddies (children in K-3rd grades) who you want to develop a love for reading, please stop by the Children's Desk to get them signed up. We are accepting applications until Aug. 28th. The program will begin on Sept. 12th, 2017. Trained adult volunteers will meet with your child for 10 weeks for 45 minutes of shared reading.

Thank you for your interest!

Book Buddies Program Returns

The Book Buddies program is returning to Kingwood Library! Book Buddies is a FREE program that brings children and adults together to share the joy of reading. It pairs trained adult volunteers with children (ages K-3rd) for 10 weeks. Buddies will meet once a week for 45 minutes of shared reading.

Kingwood Library is now accepting applications for Book Buddies volunteers until Aug. 28th. The program will begin on Sept. 12th, 2017. Apply at the children's desk!
