Holidays For Less


There are so many wonderful things about the holidays!  It is a time to be with family and friends. It's fun to give and receive gifts but sometimes it can be stressful, get out of hand and stretch your budget beyond what you can afford.  Come to our "Holiday Budgeting Seminar" Tuesday, November 18th at 7 pm here at Maud Marks Library.  Learn great money management tips to get the gifts you want with the money you have.  Make sure the holidays are a relaxing time without the stress of worrying about your budget!

Publish Your Book on Your Own

OK, so you have a book just waiting to come out but you don't want to have to deal with all the hassle of editors, publishers, and others.  What do you do?  

College Costs WHAT!?

OK, we all know that college is expensive.  In fact, the cost of college is rising much faster than the average American paycheck.  Fear not!  There is all kinds of money out there if you know where to look for it.   We can help you find it.  Come out to the library next Friday, November 7 at 4 PM for our annual college financial aid seminar.  Lone Star College will be here to show you where to find funds for post-secondary education and lower you out of pocket expenses.

Upcoming Computer Classes

At the Maud Marks Library, we offer computer classes on a variety of topics.  In fact, we have 2 special classes coming up this Tuesday, October 28 for those interested in connecting with others.

At 10 AM, we will be teaching a basic class on the Internet.  Come learn how to search the Internet and find all kinds of information available out on the World Wide Web.

Beautiful Garden, Little Water

In Houston, we understand hot and dry.  Since this drought began, it seems the weather is always hot and dry.  We've learned to live with it, but what about our lawns?  Harris County Master Gardeners has a solution for that!  Join us this Saturday for our Green Thumb Gardening Series as we discuss water star gardens.  Learn which plants conserve water and how to water for maximum benefit.  Lets keep our lawns and gardens green throughout the hot month of August and longer as we head into the fall.

Katy MakerSpace will be here tonight at 7 PM for their monthly presentation and boy do they have a surprise for you!  I just found this tweet from the founder of Katy MakerSpace, Harry Krueger, " I'm hanging out with the guys over at BuildYourCNC this afternoon to put together a demo unit that we will be bringing to our library meetup tonight."  Come out and join us for this very special meeting.
