Stripes Presents Donation to Fairbanks Branch Library

Check presentation @ Stripes Convenience Store opening.

The Fairbanks Branch Library recently received a donation of $1000 from Stripes Convenience Stores in honor of the opening of their first location in Houston. The check was presented to Fairbanks' Children's Librarian Victor Schill at the store's grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony on July 26. Harris County Public Library thanks Stripes for their generosity and welcomes them to the community.

Make a Difference!

Via our partnership with the Lone Star College System and its partnerships with The Academy and Target Hunger, the LSC-Tomball Community Library is collecting canned and non-perishable foods through the first half of June. Many area residents rely on nutritional assistance from organizations like Target Hunger. Through the summer the need is greater because more than 20% of school children go without the free or reduced priced breakfasts and lunches available at school. Help us help our community’s hungry. You can put your donated items into the collection barrels by the library elevators and in the Children’s Department. Thanks for anything you can do.

Many Thanks

CheckJean H. puts in a lot of volunteer hours at the library, doing literacy tutoring, going through the donated books and other items, restocking the shelves in the front hallway, and acting as Treasurer for the Friends of the Library.  Because she puts in so many volunteer hours here, her employer, CenterPoint Energy, has donated $500 to the Friends of the Library.  Thank you Jean and thank you CenterPoint!!  [Despite how much Jean does, the library is always looking for additional intelligent, reliable volunteers, especially adults, because they can volunteer while the teenagers are at school.]  Clipart © Jupiter Images.

Shirts & Ties for Guys

three in shirts and tiesLet's face it, guys just don't get the same resources for finding great clothes at affordable prices.  So, LSC-CyFair Branch Library and the LSC-CyFair Counseling, Career and Disability Services are taking matters into their own hands with a new program designed to supply both prom and job interview-appropriate shirts and ties for young men in high school.  In addition, the program will supply job interview-appropriate shirts and ties for male college students and community members who use the college’s career services.
