We Learn Something New Every Day

You don’t have to go to college to learn something new, but today I am going to teach you a few things you may not have known about the college. 
First of all, you do not have to have a college card nor be a student to check out items at Lone Star College Library - North Harris County Branch. They also do have a small, but nice children’s collection.
