Newly installed Little Library

Special guest author Betty Heverly writes:

You may have noticed the beautiful miniature library nestled between the flagpoles at Evelyn Meador Library. Sigourney Lee, Seabrook resident and proud Girl Scout, recently completed this project for her Girl Scout Silver Award.

The motto of the Little Free Library Program is “Take a Book. Share a Book”. Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization that inspires a love of reading, builds community, and sparks creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world. Don’t have time to stop at the library? Grab a book and leave one of your own. Spread the joy!

Congratulations, Sigourney! We look forward to sharing your wonderful project with the community.

It's "cool" at Evelyn Meador Library

 

Monday July 23rd maybe the hottest day of the summer for people here in Houston. Temperatures and heat indexes are expected to be in the triple digits the rest of this week. These dangerous Temperatures have led Harris County to designate the libraries in their system as cooling centers. So if you are sitting at home and sweating your butt off, come on down to the library to relax and cool down.

"Brrr" It's Cold Outside...

Wow what a week this has been! For the first time in 22 years the Houston area had a temperature of 19 degrees. That cold weather brought with it icy road conditions and closures all over Texas. But, we keep moving forward, we want our patrons to know that all books due those days will not have late fees applied to them.
