Thank You!

The Maud Marks Library wishes to say "THANK YOU!!!" To the Katy community.  You came out in full force last Saturday for our Build a Better World... Volunteer Fair.  We had almost 200 people walk through our door to visit our many vendors and offer assistance to others in the community.  There were so many people, organizations ran out of brochures and applications.  Don't worry though if you missed it.  We still have a list of organizations involved here at the library we are more than willing to share with you.  Just come in and we can get you that list.  On behalf of all participants, thank you for all your help!

 

Build a Better World... Volunteer!
