Adults

Adult Volunteers Needed May 7-11

Tired of sitting around the house? Come and help us out at the library! All you have to do is watch the entrance and make a tally mark on a sheet of paper every time someone walks in. Our teen volunteers have the after-school hours pretty well covered, but we need people to count before school lets out. We need volunteers on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 1-3 pm, and on Tuesday and Thursday from 10 am-3pm. Please call us and sign up for one or more 2-hour shifts. We will really, really appreciate you!

My Cup of Tea

teaTea, I think we can all agree, is a great, delicious thing. It's comforting, warming and pairs so well with a cozy blanket and a new book. The story behind tea itself, it's preparation and the culture surrounding it, is just as interesting and next Thursday, May 10th, at 11 am you can witness some of that history for yourself as we present a Chinese Tea Ceremony. You'll be able to experience this elegant tradition, as well as sample some Oolong tea from the high mountains. This program is intended for ages 18 and up, and you can register by contacting the branch. While you wait, here are some books to get you started on your journey. 

 

 

Adults - Friday, 5/4 @ 10:30 AM - TGIF Programs - Demo Series - "The Turkish Art of Ebru"

As part of the TGIF Programs Demo Series and in celebration of Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month, Clear Lake City-County Freeman Branch Library proudly welcomes back local artist, Shaheen J. Rahman, on Friday, May 4 at 10:30 AM.

Shaheen enjoys the water-based medium known as “Ebru”, the ancient Turkish art of paper-marbling. This fascinating technique involves painting on the surface of water using a stylus, as well as combs and rakes. Exquisite patterns can be made with these tools which can include stylized flora and fauna. The painting is then transferred onto paper. Shaheen also likes to incorporate Arabic calligraphy into her Ebru for a wider variety of expression through this medium.

Re Opening Soon!

We are happy to announce that the Barbara Bush Library will be reopening on Monday, May 14th at 1pm. It's been a long road from August 2017 when Hurricane Harvey put us out of commission, but we are back and ready to serve the community again. 

There will be a grand opening planned for June 2018. Details on that will be coming soon! 

We can't wait to see you all again!
