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. 

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.
