Many Adult Activities at the Library

Wow!  I was just looking at the calendar and we sure have a lot going on at Maud Marks over the next week!

Do you want to help out in the community?  On Saturday we have an English as a Second Language tutor training session starting at 9 AM.  In just 4 hours, we'll prepare you to teach adults from various countries English.  You don't even have to speak another language to help out; in fact, we prefer that you don't!  All we ask of you is a commitment of 1 1/2 hours per week through May.  Just think how rewarding it will be to help someone acclimate to life here in the Katy area!

Ok, so maybe teaching isn't your thing.  Perhaps you want to learn something.  On Tuesday at 7 PM, come to the library for your very first e-mail account.  We will be here to help you set up your new e-mail account and then show you how to use it.  It will be a very basic class, although we will be showing you how to send someone an attachment.

If you don't want to teach and you're not quite interested in a formal class, perhaps you would rather discuss a book.  After all, we are a library, right?  On Wednesday at 2 PM the Just Desserts Mystery Book Club will be meeting to discuss The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie King.  This incredible book is the 1st in her Mary Russell series, a further exploration of the Sherlock Holmes characters by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

If you're not a mystery fan, perhaps you might like to join us for this years Gulf Coast Reads book discussion.  On Thursday at 2 PM, we will be discussing Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer.  When a young boy loses his father at the World Trade Center, he starts on a quest throughout the city to solve the last mystery left for him.

There is still time to read either book and extra copies can be found behind the Customer Service desk.

Still haven't found what you are looking for?  Do you just want to play and have fun.  On Tuesday at 2 PM, adults of all ages are invited to come play wii Tennis here at the library.  We'll start out showing you how it's done and then have a little tournament with snacks and fun.  Don't worry, no one will keep score and now you can tell your kids and grandkids that you really do know how to play video games.

So you see, there is something for EVERYONE at the Maud Marks library over the next week.

Many of the programs require pre-registration so just go to our calendar and sign up.
