Ronald McDonald Jokes His Way Through Jacinto City

Ronald McDonald won over his audience at Jacinto City Library on Wednesday, August 5 with his wacky jokes and marvelous magic tricks. The children smiled and laughed as he performed one goofy act after another. The parents attending hardly resisted Ronald McDonald’s entertaining silliness and joined their children in their amusement of the beloved mascot. With this finishing performance we say good bye to the Wednesday morning story time programs at Jacinto City. Those who participated in our Summer Reading Program please be sure to turn in all book logs before the end of the week!

Adult SRP Party at JC!

Jacinto City had a record number of Adult Summer Reading Program sign ups this year.  We had 43 adults sign up this year!  Many of the adults didn't know HCPL had an SRP for them. Thanks to the Circulation Staff at our branch, they learned about the program.  To celebrate this milestone, we had a party for the all the adults who participated in this year's program.  Everyone was excited to come to the party and meet the other adults who had signed up for the program.  They thought it was great to have a program of their own and can't wait for next summer's program!


Summer Reading Program Fun at Jacinto City Branch Library!

We've been having fun the past two weeks with Comic Juggler Claude Sims and Jungle Jim.

       Last week Comic Juggler Claude Sims came and performed numerous juggling acts for the children.  Not only does he juggle, he rides a unicycle and juggles at the same time!  The children were having so much fun laughing and participating in the program, that adults were coming from the other side of the library to see what was happening!  Everyone enjoyed the program!

Did Someone Say Vacation?

With the kids out of school and summer at its peak, it's about time to put away those work shoes and bring out an endless array of vacation destinations. Gas prices are stablizing at a national average of $2.51, which could allow for a relaxing road trip as an excellent way to experience the beautiful scenery on the way to the city of your choice. The Harris County Public Library offers a large collection of atlases and work related to specific travel destinations.
