EXTRA! EXTRA! Extra Programs Through the Summer

Through the summer we have added two extra programs:

Catch the Reading Express "Read-Aloud" on Tuesdays at 1:30 in the afternoon. We're reading How To Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell. (If you have seen the movie, come hear the book read to you!)

Kids Cool Off with a Free Movie this Friday!

Fridays at 2:15 pm is the time for free movies with free popcorn in the Children's Activity Room. This Friday we will be showing a Disney film with a patriotic theme - just in time for Independence Day!

Congratulations to a Library ESL student

Kingwood Branch Library congratulates Ut Nguyen (pictured second from left), a library ESL/literacy student, on recently being granted U.S. citizenship!  Ut, like many other students, meets on a regular basis with volunteer library ESL tutors in order to improve his use of the English language.  If you know someone who would benefit from receiving one-on-one help with an English tutor here at the library, let us know!  It's easy getting connected.  Just visit the staff on the second-floor, complete a quick application, and then allow the library to move you or someone you know closer to your goals with English!  (Photo, from left to right: tutor Karen Menke, tutor Archie Kaul (back), student Ut Nguyen (front), student Nana Rolita, tutor Susie Day).

Summer Reading Program Fun!

It's not too late to get involved with the Summer Reading Program at the library!  There's plenty of summer left!  Check out the slide show below showing plenty of the fun activities so far!

Once Upon A Time: MFAH exhibit at the Kingwood Library

Once Upon a Time: Telling Stories Through Clay is a special traveling exhibit created by MFAH that will be at the Kingwood Branch Library through August 29th.   These works are from the Garth Clark and Mark Del Vecchio Collection of contemporary ceramics at the MFAH.  

Included in the works are teapots and a serving platter that celebrates the artist’s connection to “Love Shack” the song from the 1980s by the B-52s. There are bookmarks that contain information about how to get a free pass to the museum. We’ve added a display of books about this interesting art form; budding artists should be sure to take a look.
