Time to Garden

Are you ready for your own garden of Eden in  your backyard?  Come to the library this Saturday, May 21 at 10 AM as Harris County Master Gardeners explore plants of the Bible with their Green Thumb Gardening lecture series.  Learn all about the different plants mentioned in the Bible and how to grow your own.

Time for the Lions!

Maud Marks Asian Pacific Heritage Festival is back and it's THIS Saturday!  Come from 1-4 for crafts, food, cooking demonstrations, bonsai, origami, dancing, and more!  Don't forget, be here by 3:30 for our ever popular Vietnamese Lion Dance.  Will the lions play with you this year?  We thank The Friends of the Maud Marks Library for sponsoring this event.

May the Fourth Be With You (On the Third)

Star Wars Day is next Wednesday and the Maud Marks Library is so excited, we're celebrating early!  Next Tuesday, May 3 visit us at 4 PM for games, crafts and food.  Build your own BB8.  Make a Yoda puppet.  Eat a marshmallow tie-fighter.  Then, at 6 PM, join us as the Resistance fights the New Order as they search for Luke Skywalker.  Watch out though, there may be Stormtroopers wandering around the library!

Join us Tuesday night.  The resistance needs you!

Countdown to the End of Tax Season!

April has arrived and the end of tax season is looming!  Have you turned in your tax returns yet?  Don't worry, Maud Marks Library and AARP have you covered.  You still have 5 chances  to get your taxes done.  AARP will be here today, Friday, April 8, Monday, April 11, Friday, April 15, AND Monday, April 18.  All times are 10 AM- 2 PM.  

Don't wait until the last minute, get yours filed today!

Still in the Heart of Tax Season

Yes, the Maud Marks Library is closed tomorrow and AARP will not be here to help with tax returns.  Don't worry though!  There is plenty of time left in the tax season this year.  In fact, due a holiday in Washington D.C., your taxes are not due until April 18.  That means AARP will continue to be out here on Mondays and Fridays through April 18.  You can come get your returns done on a first come, first served basis on Mondays March 28, April 4, 11, and 18 AND Fridays April 1, 8, and 15.

Super Tuesday!

No, superheroes are not coming to the library, the election is!  Once again, the Maud Marks Library will be a polling place for this year's Texas Primary Election.  If you want to vote in the Republican Primary and your voting precinct is 619, you can vote at the Maud Marks Library.  If you want to vote in the Democrat Primary and your voting precinct is 5-9. 522, 619, or 644, you can vote at the Maud Marks Library.  To find out your voting precinct number and where you vote, visit the Harris Votes webpage.

Read It Before You See It!

Did you know there is a book out there called Pride, Prejudice, & Zombies?  Did you know they have made it into a movie that opens next week?  It's not too late to read it before you see it!  However, if you are in the mood for something more traditional, Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austin is still a favorite among many.  It is available as a book, movie, or even miniseries.

Citizenship Classes Start Tonight!

Are you looking to become an American citizen or just interested in learning more about it?  Come to the library at 6:30 tonight.  We will begin our citizenship class series which will prepare you for the citizenship test.  This class will meet Mondays, January 11 and 25 and February 8, 15, and 22.  Come to one or all the classes to prepare for your future as an American citizen.

Computer Classes

The Maud Marks Library has some pretty great computer classes tomorrow.  Did you get an iPad or tablet for the holidays?  Tomorrow at 10 AM we will have a Getting Started with Apps class.  Learn all about the hundreds of apps out there to make your life easier, more productive, or even more fun!

At 1 PM is our Twitter class.  Learn to tweet and get back in touch with old friends and family.  You're only allowed 140 characters, can you have your say in less?

Click here to sign up for these and other classes at the Maud Marks Library.

Watch Christmas Movies All Weekend Long!

OK, yes, we know that there are Christmas movies running nonstop on television right now.  What are we going to do on Saturday though when they stop?  The library can help with that!  Watch Christmas movies all weekend long and beyond with our Hoopla Database.  Hoopla contains a wide range of books, movies, comics, and TV shows which can be checked out and downloaded right to your device using the Hoopla app.  All you need is your Harris County library card!  Don't have one?  Click here to find out how you can get our Digital Card for free.
