Preschool Storytime: Colors

Join us on Tuesday, May 10th at 10:30 AM for a colorful Preschool Storytime! Because of the ongoing painting process in our building, we will be meeting in the children’s picture book section instead of the meeting room. Tuesday’s 11:15 session of Infant Time will also meet in the children’s section.

There are still parts of the building that are being repainted. If you or your child are allergic or sensitive to paint fumes, please take this into consideration when deciding whether to attend storytime at our branch tomorrow.

Thank you all so much for your flexibility and understanding the past few weeks!

Children’s Preschool, Infant and Toddler Programs Canceled @ Katherine Tyra This Week

wet paintWhen life hands you lemons, let’s all enjoy a nice glass of lemonade.  How? By moving a little further down Clay Road for two family storytimes this week. 

Our new coat of paint results in our need to cancel our preschool, infant and toddler programs this week at our library.  Luckily, Clay’s Restaurant has stepped in to provide an alternate location for two family storytimes this week.  Please join us at Clay’s Restaurant, 17717 Clay Rd, Houston, TX 77084 on Wednesday, May 4 and Thursday May 5 at 11:15 am for a family storytime.  

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our patrons.  We also want to thank Clay’s Restaurant for generously allowing us to use their facility for these programs.
