Spread the Word—Literally. Become a Volunteer Literacy Tutor

If you are visiting this website, it’s a good bet that you know reading’s fundamental value to your day-to-day life. Odds are equally likely that you cannot imagine life without it. But it is a sad fact that 1 in 5 Texans--your neighbors--don’t have to imagine; they are living it—every hour of every day.

Patron Count Week is Coming!

Patron Count Week is coming, and that means we need volunteers!  So what does that mean for you?

Patron Count Week is March 11-17th.  We need a volunteer to sit at a table in our lobby every hour the library is open to the public to count each man, woman, and child who enters.  Sound like a big job?  It’s not!  Anyone who knows their numbers is welcome to help out.  In between counting, you can even catch up on the latest celebrity gossip with a magazine or keep your nose in your favorite book!

If you are interested in learning more about Volunteering at the library and for Patron Count Week, come to our next New Volunteer Orientation on Monday, March 5th at 6:30 PM.  To sign up for Patron Count Week, call the library at 281-550-0885 or stop by the Information Desk.
