Summer Programs

Summer reading sign-up is ongoing
I can't believe it's already Summer! Time flies when you're having fun, and we have had SO much fun this summer at the library.
Everyone can still sign up for "On Your Mark, Get Set, READ!" until the end of the Summer Reading Program. Sign up either online or at the library branch.   Come to the library after you complete the program to pick up your prizes.

Celebrate Summer Reading!

On Your Mark! Get Set! READ!

Come and join in our Tomball Summer Reading Program! We are now into our third week. Yesterday children enjoyed a wonderful Mad Science program about nutrition; next week they can enjoy Texas Snakes and More (with live examples). In July come and participate in  the Hansel and Gretel marionette puppet show and a live performance of the Wizard of Oz. And that's only a sampling of the free programs we're offering here at the children's level.

For teens, we offer free programs every Tuesday afternoon at 3 pm. They include board games, crafts, and henna skin design creation. We are also offering one teen art camp and two LEGO Robotics Camps! One day soon we'll read an entire Harry Potter book. Stay tuned for that! Come and find the Astros Orbit mascot hidden in the library and put your name into a drawing to win one.

And then there's the summer-long reading and activity program. Read ten books or do ten activities and win a prize. We have a baby level, and children's, teens, and adult level programs. Join us!

Our pole vault standards on the perimeter of the entrance display shown in the photo is a celebration of the number of people who have joined and the number of people who have completed the reading and activity challenges so far. As of the middle of last week, we had 352 people signed up and 42 people have completed their challenge already. Our hope is to top that standard on the left with 1200 participants and to get as many people to the top of the completion standard on the right as we can.

Summer Reading Program has started!

We have many programs and events scheduled all the way until August.  Some events require registration.  Please check our calendar of events to see if you'd like to participate.

Summer Reading is Here! Be your own Super Hero!

Yes! Rain or shine, it’s Summer Reading time again, and we’re celebrating super heroes—like you! If reading is your superpower (or the superpower to which you aspire), check out our fun programs here, then sign on to one of our various reading programs and win prizes for doing what you love.

Adults who read or listen to 5 books or log 600 minutes of listening will receive a ‘Reading is My Superpower’ water bottle. They will also be eligible at the end of the summer for a grand prize drawing of a Kindle Fire.

As this week goes on our YA librarian and Children’s Department Reference Assistant will blog about teen and children’s programs coming up. Meantime, let me tell you how to document having become your own super hero by taking a super-selfie at our Photo Booth. You can borrow a super hero mask at the 1st floor reference desk and a selfie-stick for a long focus picture.

Have a great summer—reading!
