During your next visit to the library, be sure and check it out! It's located on the first floor near the elevator. 

We'd like to thank all of our volunteers, past and present, as well as our Friends of the Library for going above and beyond on a daily basis to make our library such a wonderful place for our community!

ESL Tutor Training September 28

At LSC-Tomball Community Library, requests for help in mastering the English language are ongoing. People attempting English for the first time and veterans who want to improve their grammar, reading, writing, or accent keep inquiring; so we try to match these eager adult learners with a volunteer tutor.

Are you interested in becoming a volunteer tutor? You don’t need skills in another language and you don’t need to be an expert. We’re having a training day on Saturday, September 28, from 9 a.m. to 12:30, at the Barbara Bush Library on Cypresswood. So now would be a good time to sign up. Call us at 832-559-4200.
