New Book Stand and Best Seller List

Are you wondering what to read next?  Take a look at our New Book Stand!  We receive new titles every week in paperback and hardback.   This week we have Fern Michaels The Scoop on CD if you like audios.

We also have the New York Times Best Sellers Fiction List at our book stand for you to browse.  Many of the titles have waiting lists.  If you see a title you like, ask a staff member to place a hold for you!  Janet Evanovich's Finger Lickin' Fifteen has been on the list for 7 weeks.  If you enjoy James Patterson books, his latest title, Swimsuit is number 9 this week. 

Book Sale!

Looking for books at a cheap price? Then try the Jacinto City Library book sale. We have a variety of books ranging from mystery novels to college books all at incredibly low prices. So next time you stop by to check out your books or movies, make sure to ask one of the employees at the library where the book sale stand is. And who knows? You may find something you will really love.

Lead Poisoning Prevention Exhibit

We will have a Lead Poisoning Prevention Exhibit at the Jacinto City Branch from August 10th thru August 21st.  The Environmental Public Health Division of Harris County Public Health and Environmental Services provided the exhibit.   The goal of their Lead Hazard Control Program is to reduce serious and permanent health problems through early detection of lead levels in childrens blood under six years of age.  To see the services they provide, go their website http://www.hcphes.org/eph/leadmain.htm, as well as the other website  links they offer.

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!
