2017 Bayou City Book Festival

Customers turning pensStaff from the Kingwood Library participated in the Bayou City Book Festival at Lone Star College-Kingwood on April 8, 2017. We showcased some of the library system's services, like reading therapy dogs and maker activities. The library had its 3D printers in action and lead participants in making molds with vacuum forming. Thanks to our community partner, Creekwood Middle School, festivalgoers got to make their own pens. Making your own pen was a great treat for a bunch of book lovers. Thank you, Mr. Cage!
