Construction professionals: new career resources are here

Construction professionals seeking a career boost have a great new resource at Parker Williams Branch Library thanks to a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Science and the Texas State Library & Archives Commission.

The grant enabled the library to purchase trainee guides in 15 different craft areas for area construction professionals seeking certification from the National Center for Construction and Education Research. NCCER certification is widely recognized in construction industries and indicates that workers have achieved journey-level status, which translates to higher pay and additional job opportunities.

Construction in the Library - Update 8/22

under construction signIf you visit the library in the next few weeks, be aware of two construction projects that may affect your visit.

  • • The Cyber Café is closed while the college makes improvements to the area. The goal is to reopen by August 26. In the meantime, food and drinks may be purchased in the Lakeside Café in the next building or from the vending machines.
     
  • • This Friday and Saturday, August 23-24, new carpet will be installed in the Kids Corner. The area will be closed during that time.

Aldine Library Sidewalk Project

The City of Houston has begun their project to widen the sidewalk in front of the Aldine Library. Today, an excavator dug up the asphalt that comprised the STAFF parking lot driveway. However, the PUBLIC parking lot driveway is still intact.

We'll keep you posted on any updates or developments regarding this project!

Sidewalk Project

As you may have noticed, The City of Houston is replacing the sidewalks along Airline Drive and Dyna Drive. Today, the City began to work on the sidewalk along the entrance to the Aldine Library. A hydraulic crusher broke the concrete at the library's driveway this morning in the first phase of the project. Your vehicle can still enter and exit the parking lot at this point. Later, perhaps next week, another City of Houston contractor will tear up the concrete and replace it. We'll keep you updated as the project continues.

yellow construction signParking @ Your Library This Weekend?

Please be aware that parking spaces in front of the Library will be unavailable for a short time this Saturday, 8/25, due landscape maintenance work on the area.

Inside the computer lab

Last week we showed  you a picture of the outside of our new computer lab.  Today, we have a photograph tracking the progress inside our new computer lab.  It's mostly just wood framing now, but soon it will full of new computers for your use!  Don't forget that while Galena Park library is closed you can visit any other Harris County Library branch, such as our Jacinto City or North Channel branches.

Construction update @ Galena Park

Galena Park is starting to look different now!  We took some pictures so you can start to track your library's progress.  Check out the inside shot of the library.  Sure looks different with no books or shelves up!  And our new computer lab is taking shape with the walls up and the roof in progress.  We hope you are as excited about these changes as we are!  Check back for more updates as this project moves along.  And don't forget, you can still visit any Harris County Library branch for your library needs, like our nearby Jacinto City Branch on Akron and North Channel Branch on Wallisville Road.

Galena Park Closes this Saturday for Renovations

It's finally time. Galena Park Library will close this Saturday, March 3rd at 1pm for renovations.  When we reopen, we will have a fantastic new computer lab as well as a fresh coat of paint and new carpeting.  While we are closed and getting spiffy, you can visit our neighboring Jacinto City or North Channel Branch Library for any of your library needs.  Any holds not picked up by Saturday will be sent to the Jacinto City branch.  We can't wait for you to see what we look like in a couple of months!  Se
