Little Buddies Needed!

Hello everyone. In my previous post, I discussed the Book Buddies program here at Kingwood Library and our need for adult volunteeers to read to children. I am happy to announce we have enough adult volunteers. However, at this point we don't have enough children signed up! We now need Little Buddy volunteers!

Parents, if you have Little Buddies (children in K-3rd grades) who you want to develop a love for reading, please stop by the Children's Desk to get them signed up. We are accepting applications until Aug. 28th. The program will begin on Sept. 12th, 2017. Trained adult volunteers will meet with your child for 10 weeks for 45 minutes of shared reading.

Thank you for your interest!

Summer Reading @ HCPL Starts June 6!

Harris County Public Library’s Summer Reading Program kicks off June 6 with new incentives & new ways to participate.

Harris County Public Library’s annual Summer Reading Program has never been just about reading. Summer at HCPL is about reading and all the ways it helps you engage more fully with the world around you. With that in mind, for the first time, HCPL will offer incentives not only for what you read, but for what you do, as well.

We're Having Summer Reading Fun All Over

Not only is it heating up outside, the summer reading fun is heating up in library branches all over Harris County.  We have reading encouragement activities and prizes for signing up and meeting your reading goal, plus we've got fun events of all types happening at your local branch almost every day.  Take a look at your local calendar to see what's happening now.

It could be a pizza making party,           or storytime yoga,
