Celebrate Read Across America Day with The Cat in the Hat and the Arandas' Mascot "Goat"

Read Across America is an annual celebration created by the National Education Association and promotes the excitement of reading and books to children and teens everywhere. Here at the South Houston Branch Library we invite you to celebrate Read Across America Day during our celebration next Thursday, March 1 at 4:30 PM. Children will have the opportunity to enjoy a cake sponsored by Arandas Bakery, prepare their own Dr. Seuss snacks, and participate in fun games. "The Cat in the Hat" and the Arandas mascot "The Goat" will be present and available to take pictures with children. We invite you to come and celebrate the magic of reading with us.

Winter Olympics Curling Game

The Winter Olympic Games are upon us, and to celebrate we will be having a fun game of Curling on Thursday February 15 @ 4:30 PM. Curling is a game in which members of a team try to control the direction and speed of a round flat stone by sweeping the surface of the ice in the stone's path. Kids ages 6-12 are invited to play our own non-ice modified version of this game and will receive an Olympic Games Diploma.

For more information about this fun program, please contact the branch at 832-927-5530.
