4th of July

Get to Tomball library by Wednesday—or wait til next week!

Please note that both LSC-Tomball Community Library and Cy-Fair Library, along with all Lone Star College campuses, will be closed Thursday, July 2nd, Friday, July 3rd, Saturday, July 4th, and Sunday, July 5th. All other Harris County Public Libraries will be open until 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 2nd, but will also be closed Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. 

Felicitations for a Focused Fourth!--or the Alternative

When the Fourth of July holiday falls in the middle of the week we have neither the lead-time to prepare nor the down-time to recover from our over-indulgences. So either we have to be very focused or, alternately, we can stretch it out and declare a personal month of patriotic celebration.

We at the library can help you with the latter.

Our famous ‘round wall’ has a new display simply called ‘American History’. It’s full of lovely great biographies of the founding fathers and histories of the American Revolution. When you get through those, there are also Civil War, frontier history, and Texas revolutionary histories. You could celebrate 1750 to 1865 all through July.

You can also read David McCullough’s great book, 1776 and discuss it socially at the inaugural gathering of the History Book Club on Tuesday, July 17th. It’ll be in the Friends of the Library Room on the first floor, at 7:00 o’clock.

However you celebrate Independence Day, we send our best wishes for a wonderful time.
 

Happy Fourth of July!

The 4th of July is the perfect setting for a fun filled day of food, family and friends. If weather permits, I will be picnicking in the park this weekend.  

Please feel free to share a favorite cookbook or recipe below.  I am always looking for new recipes and would love any suggestions you may have.
