Garden Beauty at the Library!

Kingwood Branch Library has been blessed with angels – the Kingwood Garden Club plants and maintains the gardens in front of the library and has for years now. Beautiful gardens beckon all those who enter the library and entice customers to check out garden books so they may duplicate the lovely scenery at their homes. We have many garden books that are perfect for Kingwood gardeners including Howard Garrett’s Plants for Houston and the Gulf Coast Area, Sally Wasowski’s

AARP Tax Help - Different Location for 2010

For the first time in more years than I care to remember Kingwood Branch is not the location for the AARP Tax Help in the Kingwood area.  Due to our move to the new location during the tax preparation time period, AARP will be at the Kingwood First Baptist Church located at 3500 Woodland Hills this year.  The date and times will be the same - each Wednesday from now until April 14th, from 10 AM until 1:30 PM. 

Many of these volunteers have been coming to the Kingwood Branch Library with the AARP Tax Help group for more than a dozen years.  I feel like a part of the family didn't come for the annual visit!

We do still have some tax forms and publications available; they are in the foyer of the library right by the meeting room entrance.
