Library Gets a Facelift

The library is looking better these days thanks to volunteers from the annual Caring for Katy program sponsored by Kingsland Baptist Church. Volunteers power-washed the building, replaced dozens of lights, dusted the shelves and painted the interior.

Would you consider helping someone become a U.S. Citizen?  A little of your time can make a huge difference.

Harris County Public Library will begin offering free citizenship classes this month.  We are in need of volunteers to help teach the classes in this program, to be held in various library locations.  Volunteers are required to attend a 3-hour HCPL Citizenship Tutor Training.  Training topics will include eligibility requirements, the citizenship process, the Naturalization test and Civics.

The initial training opportunity will be held on Thursday, January 22, 2015 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM at the Parker Williams Branch Library, located at 10851 Scarsdale Boulevard, Suite 510, Houston, TX 77089.  For more information, or to register, call Alisha Hall at 713-749-9000 or email alisha_hall@hcpl.net.

The Fabulous '50s

Malt StationThis past week the staff at the Barbara Bush Branch Library hosted a luncheon for its volunteers. Like every year, the luncheon had a theme and this year's celebrated The '50s. The outfits, music, and cuisine (Chocolate malts, anyone?) all represented that fabulous decade. You can checkout some pictures on Flickr.

The luncheon is held to thank our volunteers for the tremendous work they do for this library and the community. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, then learn more here.
