Welcome Back to School!

The Evelyn Meador Branch Library is excited for school to start next week! We can’t wait to see and help out our students. To help everyone start the year right, we wanted to let you know about some of our great school resources to help kids succeed this year!

2019 Summer Reading Programs has ended...

This summer the kids and their families enjoyed a wide-range of programs for all ages. Story-time, Jedi Academy, Family Game Night and many other fun activities. We are preparing programs for the upcoming school year. We will return September 3 with more programs ideas. 

Home School Help!

The Evelyn Meador Library loves our homeschoolers! We are always happy to have home school groups and families come to the library and check out our books. As such, we are happy to announce a new tool for our home school groups! The library has created a request form for our homeschoolers, allowing them to request visits to the library! WIth this form, you will be able to request storytimes, library tours, classes, and free play time whenever works for your schedule! We hope that you will use it to take advantage of all the great materials that we offer and give you the opportunity to make even better use of your library!

Volunteers Are Out of This World!

At the Maud Marks Library we believe volunteers are out of this world! This Saturday, August 10, 10 AM to 2 PM we will be hosting our annual volunteer fair. Dozens of community organizations in the Greater Katy area in need of help will be here to tell you all about what they do to make life just a little easier for the Katy community. You can find out all you need to know to assist others in need. Among the groups coming include CASA, Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital, Hope Impacts, Katy Christian Ministries, and more! In our Universe of Stories, volunteers are out of this world!

Enjoy a Planetarium at the Library!

Next week the Evelyn Meador Library will have a Planetarium in our meeting room courtesy of the Lunar Planetary Institute. During the week, we will have some free programs for people to come and enjoy the planetarium and learn in it. This is a great resource we are excited to have, so make sure you come out to these programs to use the planetarium!
