Texas Snakes @ the Library

* Tickets required

Snakes in the library? You bet!  This is a great opportunity for children to learn why we need snakes in our environment and what to do if they see a snake.

According to Texas A & M University, "The great state of Texas is home to 37 different species of snakes, and
surprisingly, only four of those are venomous."

Support Your Library

Our funding comes from the state as well as the county, so if you’ve been well served by the library in the past year, please tell your state representatives. They need to hear from you so they can advocate for library services as they go into budget sessions.

To find out who represents you, use the QR code to the left or  click on this link: http://www.house.state.tx.us/members/find-your-representative/ and put in your residential address.

Chill at the library

After you've voted today, if you need a comfortable quiet place to get away from the election madness, come to the library!  We have coffee and soda and snacks. Curl up with a good book, listen to your iPod, play on one of our free computers, put your feet up, absorb the good qi; breathe. We're open until 9:30. The election won't be decided before then. Come and hide out, hang out, chill, take a break.
