Ace the Test!

So, how are you preparing for the most important exam you will ever take?  At the Maud Marks Library, we have an idea!  On Saturday, at 10:15 AM, Kaplan will be here to give a mock exam to all interested high school and even upper junior high students.  It will be the real exam given under real exam conditions so you can get a real feel before the big day!  Sign up here to join us and don't forget to bring your #2 pencils, a calculator, and a snack.  (After all, you'll be here for 4 whole hours and will want to keep up your energy levels.)  See you Saturday!

We Never REALLY Close

OK, so our physical site is going to be closed this week, Friday through Sunday for the holiday weekend.  Never fear though because our online branch is open 24/7!

Check Out Something Mysterious at the Library

It's summer again, and that means the Maud Marks Summer Genre Challenge.  Read 5 books in 5 different genres, for an entry to the drawing for our grand prize gift basket.  This basket includes various books, movies, a Kindle Fire, Alamo Drafthouse movie tickets & food vouchers, and a $25 Katy Budget Books gift certificate.  Wow!

Exercise That Mouse Hand!

It's time for Mouserobics!  Come to Maud Marks next Tuesday, June 9 at 1 PM.  We will spend the class learning proper mousing techniques including how to hold the mouse, clicking and double clicking, scrolling, highlighting, and more.  Learn to use the most important input device in modern times.

Makerspace, What is THAT?!

Have you heard of the new movement that is sweeping the country?  There is a new way to promote STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) through Makerspace.  Makerspaces are popping up all over the country and we have one right here in Katy.

You CAN Work for Yourself

Are you ready to be your own boss?  Maud Marks can help you do that!  This Saturday at 10 AM, SCORE, a volunteer group who offer business counseling to small business owners, will be here to show you how it is done.  They will discuss things like choosing a business entity, the right location, business expenses and deductions, employees vs. subcontractors, financial organization (setting up your books), forms, websites and more.  Let 2015 be the year you gain your employment independence!

How does YOUR garden grow?

Spring is arriving and it's time to spruce up our gardens.  But, how do we keep track of everything growing in our yards?  Come to the library on Saturday, March 21 at 10 AM as Harris County Master Gardeners present their next Green Thumb Gardening presentation.  We will talk all about documenting your garden.  Never again wonder if that is a weed or a flower growing there in the middle of your flower bed.  Know what is there!

We May Be Closed...

This is just a friendly reminder that, though our brick building might be closed from 5 PM today until 1 PM on Monday morning, the library is ALWAYS open online!

Get Your Christmas Presents Here!

Do you have someone on your list you just don't know what to get?  How about a book?  The Friends of the Maud Marks Library will be hosting their next used book sale this Saturday 10 AM- 4 PM.  There is a large selection of hardback fiction and nonfiction, as well as children’s books and paperbacks.
