We need Tutors! Are YOU interested?

At LSC-Tomball Community Library, requests for help in mastering the English language are ongoing. We get requests from people attempting English for the first time and from veterans who want to improve their grammar, reading, writing, or accent. We try to match these eager adult learners with a volunteer tutor.

We have also started classes for those hoping to become U.S. citizens and for those classes we also need tutors.

Are you interested in becoming a volunteer tutor? You don’t need skills in another language and you don’t need to be an expert in either our language or our civics. We have several training days for you to choose from, below. So now would be a good time to sign up! Call us at 832-559-4200.

Butterflies at the Library

butterfly wallbutterflyCelebrate citizenship month and create your own origami butterfly and leave the library a special message.  At the table near the children's area is a basket of paper and instructions, if you get stuck come and ask for help at the desk.  Once you are finished add it to our growing collection of butterflies.  We come from all over the world.  We embrace transformation, we make our way in faith, and we emerge from our transitions as brilliantly as the butterfly.  We also have caterpillars ready to emerge as painted lady butterflies. Come soon, we will be letting them go next week.
