Pet Food at the Library

Once again, the Houston SPCA has arrived at the Maud Marks Library with more cat and dog food. If you or someone you know is in need of pet supplies, please come to the branch to pick up items. Please bring your own bags to carry the food home.

We are open until 6 PM today. However, the food goes very quickly so come quickly.

These items are donations from around the country to Houston SPCA. We would like to thank the Houston SPCA for their dedication to getting these supplies to where they are needed most.  We are honored to partner with them to make sure the affected pets in our area are taken care of.

Online Book Clubs

Even though we aren't open, we still have events happening in the community. Join our online book clubs that you can attend from home!
