Have you recently purchased a new computer? Not sure what all of the icons do or what to click to get where you want to go? Not sure what an "icon" is? Well then you should sign up for our Computers 101 class.

Friday Movie Time

  Before you make plans to see the new movie coming out in August, come and watch Disney’s 1977 animated adventure Pete’s Dragon.  It's the story of a boy and his "fierce" dragon, Elliot. The movie will be shown on Friday, July 29, 2016, at 1:15 pm. Come and enjoy the free movie with free popcorn.

Hooray, It's Book Sale Time!

Woo-hoo It's book sale time once again at the Maud Marks Library. This Saturday, July 30th, the Friends of the Maud Marks Library will be having their used book sale from 10 AM - 4 PM. There are lots of books, magazines, videos, DVDs and more, for children, teens, and adults. Come see all our insane bargains. All proceeds will benefit the library. The book sale will take place in the meeting room of the library. So swing on by the the Maud Marks Library this Saturday and walk out with a bag full of books! 

Over 1000 readers!

Maud Marks Library has exceeded 1000 readers signed up for our 2016 Summer Reading Program.

68 babies, 705 kids, 90 teens and 141 adults have committed to read this summer. If you aren't one of them there is still time to join. The summer reading program runs thru August 6. In order to get any prizes you need to have read 10 books or completed 10 activities. 

Exercise Your Reasoning Powers... Read a Mystery.

At the Maud Marks Library, we are currently looking at the mystery genre for our summers adult genre challenge.  Remember, read 5 different genres and get an entry for our grand prize book basket which includes a Kindle Fire, a $25 gift card to Katy Budget Books, and 4 tickets to the Alamo Drafthouse.  As always, we would like to thank the Friends of the Maud Marks Library, Katy Budget Book, and the Alamo Drafthouse for their generous assistance to our genre challenge and Summer Reading Program.

So, why read a mystery book this summer?  Mysteries examine human nature, probing the why, the who and how. Justice is at the heart of the solution in a mystery. When "legal justice" is not an option, investigators take the law into their own hands. Most of the time readers can expect the good guys to win and the bad guys to be punished.

WOOHOO! Family Film Time!

Ready for some exciting family entertainment? On Friday July 15 at the Maud Marks Branch Library, we will be showing Babe in the meeting room. The movie will begin at 1:15 PM with free popcorn provided.
