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!

At the Maud Marks Library, we have a very giving community.  Our food drive this summer filled our box and then some for Katy Christian Ministries.  But it is now time to celebrate our community's giving spirit is another way through our annual volunteer fair!  This Saturday, the Maud Marks Library will be hosting our third annual volunteer fair for the Katy community.  Groups participating this year include Child Advocates, West Houston Assistance Ministries, CAPS, Texas Children's Hospital, Krause Center, and more.  Come out between 10 AM- 2 PM to learn all about the many groups in the Katy area looking to make our community a better place!  Find out how you can give back to your neighbors.  Thank you for being such a loving community!
