Birthday

Thank You for Celebrating our 10th Anniversary!

On behalf of the LSC-Tomball Community Library staff, and the Friends of the Tomball Library, I would like to express a heartfelt thank you to the community and college members who came out this weekend to help us celebrate the library’s 10-Year Anniversary in this building.  It was a wonderful event filled with fun and festivities, and it was made all the more special by your participation.

If you missed the big day, please look forward to the continuous offerings that go on at the library, year in and year out, month to month, and day after day.  There is truly something for everyone, and absolutely everyone is welcome.  We offer story times, computer classes, book clubs, business presentations, holiday and seasonal programming, cultural heritage events, bus trips for seniors and much, much more.  So, please join us soon for something great, and help us kick-off our next ten years!

Amelia Bedelia Celebrates a Landmark Birthday

Amelia Bedelia, the well-meaning housemaid in Peggy Parish's famous children's books of the same name, is fifty years old! We are celebrating her birthday with an interactive display. Those of you who have loved her books will remember that Amelia had difficulty understanding English idioms, with hilarious result. So when Amelia's boss leaves her a note to change the towels, dust the furniture, draw the drapes, put the lights out, measure two cups of rice, and dress the chicken, --well, check out our display on the first floor to see what she did. 

Happy Birthday Dr. King!

 Martin Luther King, Jr. was a very important figure in our American history. He was someone who stood up for what he believed in and never backed down. He made such a huge impact in history that we feel it's effect to this day. Some people saw him as a hero, others saw him as an inspiration. In memory of Dr. King's birthday, I have listed a few titles that recognize all our American hero's throughout our history. Be sure to check these out on your next visit to the library.
