New Flooring to be Installed in the Children's Area!

Please pardon our dust! Starting Friday, July 19, the Children's Area will be closed while the flooring is replaced. During this process, Children's Services will temporarily take place in the Community Engagement Area at the front of the library. There will be Children's computers, a partial Children's collection available for browsing and checkout, crafts and activities, and a desk staffed by one of your friendly Children's librarians! And most importantly, all Children's programs will continue as scheduled.
If you visit the library this week, you may see us getting the Children's Area ready to move and close on Friday. But we are still ready and willing to answer all your library questions!
We apologize for any inconvenience this renovation might cause and appreciate your understanding.

Community Novel: Meet the Author

Dean Larson

Were you shocked with last year’s cliffhanger of Tomball Library’s Community Novel, Air Within a Jade? Allow us to tease you with another chapter, before our long-awaited Book Launch Party, where all will be revealed about the characters that you love and hate in the strange town of Atheneum. Local author Dean Larson penned this chapter, and shared the following about himself:

H-E-B Tournament of Champions Charitable Trust

We have great news to share!

Recently the Friends of the Tomball Community Library applied for and received a community donation of $2500 from the H-E-B Tournament of Champions Charitable Trust. This donation will be used to strengthen the early literacy initiative at the Lone Star College-Tomball Community Library through the addition of books to the Children’s collection, as well as support for Choo Choo Club (a weekly early literacy program held during the school year) and story times. We are very excited about this opportunity!

The H-E-B Tournament of Champions is an annual golf tournament currently in its 34th year that raises money to support organizations and programs that positively impact youth in Texas. The Children’s team at the LSC-Tomball Community Library is honored to have been selected as one of the community recipients this year. Early literacy concepts form the foundation of all learning, and the Children’s team is excited to continue to offer quality programs and services that help children flourish. 

Thank you, H-E-B Tournament of Champions! #HEBTOC
