Pet Food at the Library

Once again, the Houston SPCA has arrived at the Maud Marks Library with more cat and dog food. If you or someone you know is in need of pet supplies, please come to the branch to pick up items. Please bring your own bags to carry the food home.

We are open until 6 PM today. However, the food goes very quickly so come quickly.

These items are donations from around the country to Houston SPCA. We would like to thank the Houston SPCA for their dedication to getting these supplies to where they are needed most.  We are honored to partner with them to make sure the affected pets in our area are taken care of.

Hurricane Harvey

Have you been affected by Hurricane Harvey?  This area of town, just west of the reservoirs has been hit hard by the subsequent flooding.  Thousands of people have lost their homes, cars, and belongings to Harvey.  If you are one of the many in our area, please know that the Maud Marks Library wants to help.  

Yoga is Back!

Yoga took a break early this month due to our Volunteer Fair.  It is back this weekend though!  Join us on Saturday at 3 PM for our next yoga class.  Yoga can be a very relaxing and centering exercise program.  Come as we learn about the benefits and basic how-to of yoga.  We would love to see you this Saturday as we exercise our minds and bodies.  Pre-registration is recommended.  Click here to register.

Thank You!

The Maud Marks Library wishes to say "THANK YOU!!!" To the Katy community.  You came out in full force last Saturday for our Build a Better World... Volunteer Fair.  We had almost 200 people walk through our door to visit our many vendors and offer assistance to others in the community.  There were so many people, organizations ran out of brochures and applications.  Don't worry though if you missed it.  We still have a list of organizations involved here at the library we are more than willing to share with you.  Just come in and we can get you that list.  On behalf of all participants, thank you for all your help!

 

Build a Better World... Volunteer!

At the Maud Marks Library, we have a very giving community.  Our food drive this summer filled our box and then some for Katy Christian Ministries.  But it is now time to celebrate our community's giving spirit is another way through our annual volunteer fair!  This Saturday, the Maud Marks Library will be hosting our third annual volunteer fair for the Katy community.  Groups participating this year include Child Advocates, West Houston Assistance Ministries, CAPS, Texas Children's Hospital, Krause Center, and more.  Come out between 10 AM- 2 PM to learn all about the many groups in the Katy area looking to make our community a better place!  Find out how you can give back to your neighbors.  Thank you for being such a loving community!

Big and Little Buddies

Do you want to help your Elementary-aged child develop a love of reading?  The Maud Marks Library can help with that.  This fall we are starting a new program called Book Buddies.  Book Buddies matches children with trained adults to share the joy of reading.  Starting Monday, September 11 at 4:45 pm, the Buddies will meet once a week for 10 weeks of 45 minutes of shared reading.  The program will end with a party on November 13.
