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.

Rain, Rain, Go Away! (And I Mean It!)

 You should come to the library this week. Now, I know what you’re thinking. Despite all the rain, it really is worth it to come to the library. Yes, it’s wet and terrible, but it’s been raining for at least two weeks solid. The time for excuses has to end, even if it is hard to admit it.

To help you out, we have a lot of fun activities coming up at the library, which will give you the time to enjoy yourself in a free, indoor environment. That’s right. You get to be inside, you don’t have to pay anything, and our events are a guaranteed blast. Here’s some of them:

Star Wars Festival

With May the 4 long past, and Star Wars Episode IX still a long ways off, I’m sure many of you are feeling a distinct lack of the Force in your life. If that is the case, make sure that you come to the Evelyn Meador Branch Library’s Star Wars Festival on September 8. From 2:00 to 4:00 PM that Saturday, we will have a variety of Star Wars events that will fill that void in your life. Some of these amazing activities are:

Welcome Back to School!

With school starting on Monday, we at the Evelyn Meador Branch Library want to officially welcome back to our students! We have missed a lot of you over the summer (you know who you are) and we are excited to have you coming back to the library after school!

E-Summer Reading for Kids and Teens

Are your kids and teens searching for titles to read for school, or for recommended reading for their grade levels? Our e-book service through OverDrive and Libby has e-books and e-audiobooks for kids and teens that are categorized by grade level and include books on lists such as the Bluebonnet, Lone Star and the Tayshas.

If your kids are searching for something to read, check out our e-books at https://hcpl.overdrive.com/ and select Collections>Kids or Collections>Teens. You can also download the OverDrive or Libby app and log in with your Harris County Public Library card to check out e-materials.

Happy Reading!

For those who missed your chance to attend on July 24, we'll have additional session's of the room on August 16, starting at 1:30.

This activity is for ages 10 and up. 

 

Have a FOMO? You Probably Should.

FOMO, as I’m sure you all know, is a Fear of Missing Out. It generally refers to the fear that people are going to do something fun without you and afflicts pretty much everyone at some point. If you’ve ever been worried about not being at a game, missing dinner, or have been stressed about what’s happening at home without you, you’ve had FOMO. So, let me tell you right now, if you don’t plan on going to the Evelyn Meador Branch Library this week, you are definitely MO’ing (Missing Out, if that’s not clear).

Sweet Reads

Some days, we just want something sweet. Something delicious, easy to swallow and oh-so-good; something fulfilling in the best possible way. Well, it’s not always in ones best interest to have said sweet things just sitting around all the time, ready to be devoured. Sometimes, one must get their sweet fix somewhere else. For the sake of today’s blog, I’m suggesting: books. Books of all flavors and centers, but all with a bit of sweetness in their title. 

 

Indian Dance Performance and Workshop, July 17th!

 We are going to have an exciting event tomorrow, July 17, at the Barbara Bush Library! We will be having an Indian Dance performance and workshop. Children will learn basic dance techniques, hear stories, and get a chance to see items that relate to India. This program is free of charge and open to children of all ages, no ticket required. It will take place across the street at the Cypress Creek Christian Church community center, and will begin at 3pm.
