Mission

Succeed in School with Monday Mentoring!

Have you ever felt like this picture while doing homework? If so, we have good news for you. The Evelyn Meador Library is committed to working with our local community to help students succeed in school. As such, we are happy to announce the beginning of a new program at the library: Monday Mentoring.

Written in the Stars: READ!

Welcome to the beginning of our National Teen Reads Week! This is an annual celebration of our teen literature, and a time where we encourage our teens to read more (as opposed to our normal agenda, which is to discourage reading and hide books. We are a library after all.). However, if you aren’t a teen, don’t let that discourage you from celebrating this week. Everyone can come to the library and do something to participate in this amazing event. Here are some of our suggestions on how to reach for the stars at the library this week:

Meet Attica Locke

Join us on October 6th at 3:00pm and meet Atticka Locke, author of the 2018 Gulf Coast Reads selection Bluebird, Bluebird! If you'd like to read Bluebird, Bluebird please visit our catalog or call us at 832-927-7800 to request a copy today.

Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month

We at the Evelyn Meador Branch Library recognize and love the diversity of our community. It’s a wonderful thing to have people of different cultures and backgrounds associate and trade ideas. We love this aspect for our community and want to do everything we can to foster this. As such, the library is excited to be spending the next month celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. This wonderful celebration will allow us to learn more about Hispanic cultures, and gain a greater appreciation of the great things they have. Here are a few of the things that you can do at the library to gain a better appreciation of Hispanic culture.

Journal Group

Everyone is invited to this beginner's writing group. Participants write a few pages each time in response to suggested prompts, and share if they wish in an informal setting.

Journal Group will be meeting on Monday, September 17th at 1:30pm. 

If you have any questions, please call us at 832-927-7800.

Evening Book Club @ Barbara Bush

Looking for a book club that isn't during your workday? We've got one for you! It's not too late to join our evening book club. Evening book club will be meeting on September 11th at 7:00pm to discuss The Address by Fiona Davis. Stop by the branch to pick up a copy, request it through our catalog, or check a digital copy out through Overdrive

Homeschool Support Group

Starting in September, we will be offering a Homeschool Support Group. Each month, we will highlight a different theme and discuss with suggested materials. In September, we will be meeting on September 15th and the theme is Reading Aloud / English Language Arts & Reading. 

Variety of backgrounds, religious beliefs, and lifestyles are encouraged. We come with an open mind and words of encouragement. Reflect, pick brains, grow, and plan for the future.

If you have any questions, please call us at 832-927-7800. 

We look forward to hearing and sharing experiences and knowledge.

Summer Reading Summary

Now that our Summer Reading Program is officially over, and everyone is coming in to get their prizes (by the way, if you haven’t gotten your prize, come to the Reference Desk before August 18th to get it), we at the Evelyn Meador Library thought it might interest our patrons to find out how our Summer Reading Program went. As such, we decided that we would share some of our statistics for summer reading and show how great our summer went.

Congrats Nerissa!

One of our customers, Nerissa, recently visited the Barbara Bush Library to share some good news with us. She passed her Citizenship test and is now a US Citizen! Congrats Nerissa! 

Nerissa previously attended our Citizenship classes with Gaspar and found the information provided very helpful. She's beyond excited about her new achievement!

Way to go Nerissa!!

If you'd like more information about our Citizenship Class, please give us a call at 832-927-7800.
