Summer Teen and Adult Arts and Crafts Series at Galena Park Branch Library

Our summer DIY series will consist of fun activities for teens and adults (13 and over only). These activities require the individual to work by themselves with little to no help. No registration is required.

6/11- Build a Telescope: Local amateur astronomer Ed Malewitz will discuss summer star viewing and telescopes. Participants will build a Galileoscope for some hands on experience.

6/25- Paint Party: Relax this summer with a free painting session. All supplies are provided. The class will be taught by Splash KIDS Art & Paint Parties. You will be able to take your masterpiece home with you.

Maker Monday's at GP Library

I am really excited to announce our new Maker Monday program. Each Monday from 4-5 pm, we will explore a variety of S.T.E.M. projects that have been generously purchased by Port Houston. Thanks to community partners like Port Houston we are able to provide our customers with 21st century life skills like this. We will design with K’Nex build sets, complete basic circuits, and program robots. These are just a few of the things we are going to be doing, we hope to keep our makerspace growing!
