Adults - We Have 2 Sessions in January - FamilySearch Genealogy Help Sessions!

2 Sessions in January! 

  • Friday, 1/4 @ 3:45 PM 
  • Friday, 1/18 @ 3:45 PM 

Learn how to use the free FamilySearch website (www.familysearch.org) to research your family history. FamilySearch is a nonprofit family history organization dedicated to connecting families across generations and is the largest genealogy organization in the world. Millions of people use FamilySearch records, resources, and services each year to learn more about their family history.

There's a database for that....

Where can you go to find information for your school projects and reports? Where is a one-stop shop to find authoritative, credible and current information?  Where are you likely to find information that you can trust? Where can you find information easily, quickly and even gives you the citation format of your choosing already formatted for you in a variety of citation formats?  The answer is Texshare, that’s where. The Harris County library has access to TexShare Databases, which are e-resources licensed for the exclusive use of Texas libraries and our customers. Start with Harris County Library Databases for homework help, health or business information, academic journals, popular magazines, genealogy, or job and career development.

Learn About 3D Printing!

With the holidays going on, our 3D printing orientations have been a little less consistent lately. However, The Evelyn Meador Library is proud to say that that has changed now. We'll be back on schedule with orientations on January 26th and February 9th at 2:00.

These sessions are open to all ages. The orientation session will introduce participants to 3D printing in the library, with information on where the county's 3D printers are, how to sign up to use them, how to create 3D projects, and how the printers work. Those completing the class will be able to schedule time on the 3D printer to print your 3D objects.

Keep Your New Year’s Resolution this Year

The library is here to help you accomplish those resolutions and have fun during the process. With a variety of events, resources, and opportunities, there’s no goal that we can’t help you with. Here’s just a few of the ways we can help you out:
