Summer Reading Program

TGIF Programs Summer Film Festival - This Friday Morning!

The TGIF Programs Summer Film Festival will conclude with Event #6 at 10:15 AM this Friday. We will show The Italian Job, the 1969 comic caper film about a plan to steal a gold shipment from the streets of Turin by creating a traffic jam. This light, fun film stars Michael Caine, Noël Coward, and Benny Hill.

Refreshments and film will be provided by the Friends of Freeman Library. Please contact the Clear Lake City - County Freeman Branch Library at 16616 Diana Lane, Houston, TX 77062 or at 281-488-1906 for more details.

A Big Thanks to Our Summer Volunteers and Partners!

Where's Orbit?

If you visited the library over the summer, you might have noticed our ongoing scavenger hunt to find Orbit. Each week, we hid a paper Orbit, the green alien mascot of the Houston Astros, somewhere in the library, then gave two clues to his location. Those who found Orbit, could report his location to a librarian and put their name in a drawing for a plush Orbit.

On August 6th, Summer Reading came to a close, and with it, the weekly scavenger hunt for Orbit. We had a huge response throughout the summer but, in the end, Luke was our big winner. These are just a few of the pictures from his mini photo shoot with Orbit!

Congrats to Luke, and thanks to everyone who found Orbit each week and helped make this summer so much fun!
