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.

Homemade Goodies

I used to buy popcorn in microwave bags. One day, I became nostalgic and bought kernels for stove popping instead. That's how I learned I like homemade popcorn better. It tasted better. I could add my own ingredients. And it was cheaper.

I started wondering what other foods are easy to make and less costly than their ready-made counterparts. I quickly learned that peanut butter can be made in only ten minutes with only three ingredients. And, again, it was tastier and cheaper than its store-bought equivalent. I wanted to find even more items I could make, so I searched for a few books at the library and came up with three good guides.
