Tutors Needed!

We need volunteer English as a Second Language tutors! You may know that we have an ongoing ESL and English literacy program here at the library. Newcomers to our country are paired with community volunteers and have lessons at the library at mutually convenient times. You don't have to speak another language to become a tutor; we provide learning materials, training, and ongoing support for you, and you get the immense satisfaction that comes from having an intense encounter with a person from another culture who is learning to embrace ours. If you're interested in volunteering, call Suellen at 832-559-4220. 

All Aboard!

Come enjoy light refreshments and meet authors, Paul A. Bussard, Alberto Arcia and Alan Berkowitz as they discuss the ins-and-outs of publishing and the writing process.
