Adults - HCPL Database Series in November

Adults - Did you know... Harris County Public Library provides members with numerous databases? Also, did you know you can use our databases to do practical and fun things? Find out how! In our November classes, we'll focus on:

  • "Hobbies & Craft Reference Center" on 11/20

Both classes will start at 3:30 PM and will be held in the upstairs Training Lab. Please register Online or by giving the Reference Desk a call @ 832-927-5420.

The Friends of Freeman Library support these classes.

This free kit will include all materials necessary as well as instructions. This project will be available to adult patrons while supplies last. 1 craft kit/adult present.

Celebrate Holidays with the Library

 Now that November has come around, we are all preparing for Thanksgiving, that big holiday at the end of the month. However, there are a lot of other holidays this month that just get overlooked in our turkey preparation. Yeah, Thanksgiving is fun, but should it so blatantly overshadow Have a Party with Your Bear Day (Yeah, look it up. It’s worth a Google)? Or what about the equally important National Fast Food Day? Should that be passed over for a holiday that we just go and eat food? We agree with you that it should absolutely not! So, to help correct this egregious oversight, we at the library are happy to provide some books to help you properly celebrate some of these other holidays (as well as letting you know when these are). You’re welcome.

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:
