Spring Craft Today at Maud Marks!

If you know an elementary-aged child who likes art be sure to come to the Afternoon Art program! It's today, March 28, at 4:30 pm in the meeting room and we'll be using tissue paper and glue to make pictures that look like watercolor paintings.  This event is free thanks to support from the Friends of the Maud Marks Library. 


I would describe our Children's Librarian, Charity James, as a real Renaissance Woman.  She is a person of expertise that spans a significant number of different subjects.  Charity has been at the Maud Smith Marks Library going on 9 years.  She is known for her skills as a Children's Librarian and her love of children of all ages.  I thought you might like to know that she got her Masters of Library and Information Science at UT-Austin.  Her undergraduate study was music, which she still uses in her storytimes.  She is a member of the Ft Bend Symphony.  Her taste in music is very eclectic.  You never know what she will be listening to next.  She enjoys Swing dancing, and has been a member of a Renaissance Dancing Troup.  Her seamtress skills have been used to make her attire for the troup and all the costumes  her 2 daughters have needed through the years. Charity is particularly interested in retro designs o



We do some really cool stuff in our children's afternoon art program.  September 22, 4:30 PM we will make a pinata.  Let you imagination go wild.
