We Give Thanks

All of us here at Maud Marks are so thankful for our wonderful customers!  What a great year we have had so far.  Thank you all for your patience and understanding during our migration to our new system last week.  We know that it was a bit frustrating but you all "hung in there" with us!  Just a reminder that we close at 5 pm. next Wednesday, November 25 and will be closed Thursday through Sunday, November 26-29 for the Thanksgiving holiday.  We wish everyone a great Thanksgiving with family, friends and food.  Come back and see us Monday, November 30.

Holidays For Less


There are so many wonderful things about the holidays!  It is a time to be with family and friends. It's fun to give and receive gifts but sometimes it can be stressful, get out of hand and stretch your budget beyond what you can afford.  Come to our "Holiday Budgeting Seminar" Tuesday, November 18th at 7 pm here at Maud Marks Library.  Learn great money management tips to get the gifts you want with the money you have.  Make sure the holidays are a relaxing time without the stress of worrying about your budget!

This year, Easter is celebrated on the last day of March in the Western world. If you're curious about a few of the typical traditions surrounding the holiday, try these books: 

Before you go on holiday...

The Kingwood Branch Library has much to offer for holiday reading and entertainment!  Before we close for the holiday, come check out our holiday displays, new fiction titles, and seasonal romances and mysteries.  Books on cd and entertainment dvds are also available and the tech-savvy can browse our digital media catalog for downloadable eBooks and audio.  For more information, contact the library @ 281-360-6804.

What are Your Holiday Wishes?

What are your wishes for the holidays this year? A particular gift from Santa? The safe return of family members? The healthy birth of a grandchild? A job for your husband?

We invite you to write your wish upon a star at the first floor Children's or Adult Reference desk, then help fill the sky on the round wall display area with your wonderful wish. Happy Hanukkah to our Jewish friends this weekend, and joyous anticipation to everyone else for your particular holiday celebration.

Holiday Entertainment

Entertainment is an action, event or activity that aims to amuse and interest an audience. It is the audience that turns a private recreation or leisure activity into entertainment. There is so much to do in the holidays, and having a little quiet time is considered a luxury. How about enjoying a few movies this Christmas as a way to relax and take in the Holiday Spirit. Not just your ordinary movies but classic Christmas Movies. Check out our catalog, and gather a few ideas. However, this is one of my favorites.
