Sharks and Rays Exhibit

The Galena Park Branch will once again host an exhibit of the Sharks and Rays. The event will take place on July 7th at 3PM. Don't worry, they wont bite. I will make sure that they are well under control. During this exhibit, all persons interested will be able to get and upclose encounter with either a small shark or small ray. Make sure to ask a lot of questions. Don't forget to bring your camera.

June's Display Case

For the month of June, I was placed in charge of the display case in the GP lobby. To start, beginning June 4th we kicked off Harris County Public Library's 2010 Summer Reading Program. This year’s children’s theme is 'Catch the Reading Express'. SRP 2010 Display caseCoinciding with that theme, I made a 3D train and added some books about summer reading fun. 

The Summer Thriller Theater at GP

Are you tired of all of this Summer Heat?  My friends the meteorologists say that it is going to get even warmer.  One good way to stay cool is to beat the heat at your local library.  At the Galena Park Branch, we will be showing a series of free movies throughout the summer.  Yep... it is a free movie and free is always free.  Rest assured that we will be playing some of the most interesting movies ever.  Our next movie will be a show about some animated toys.  I really think that a lot of you will like this.  It will be two movies shown back to back starting at 2:00 PM on Thursday 17 June 2010.  Feel free to bring your own snacks to the movie!!
