Kingwood Art Society on display

In case you hadn't noticed before, our library is privileged every month to showcase groups and individuals in the Kingwood community through the use of our lobby display case.  This month, we have the pleasure of displaying some of the works of members in the Kingwood Art Society.  Next month, in April, we will have some of their annual Spring Art Show & Competition winners on display.  Be sure to come and take a look at the local talent on display here in March and April!

Teen Tech Week!!!

 Teen Tech Week is here!! As teens, I know you loooove technology! :) I do to!!! And have we got technology! Are you like me and you're e-reader is with you all the time? How about your iPod? I don't go anywhere without one of my favorite gadgets. I couldn't imagine being without my music, the internet or a good book!! Which is one of the reasons I'm so grateful for the library! I totally can't afford to buy every book I want to read and with access to our digital catalog, I can check out books that I've been dying to read, but just don't have the money to purchase. And I don't have to worry about fines! When the book is due, it will expire and I no longer have access to it on my computer or my e-reader. That's one less book to worry about returning!

Rearranging the "furniture"

If you've paid us a visit upstairs recently, you might have noticed things are not where they used to be!  Now that we've been open for almost a year, we've been able to see how things could be improved based on customers' use of and comments about the library.  One of those improvements involves the location of certain parts of the adult collection.  So, in response to you, our customers, we're rearranging some of the collection.  The large type section is now closer to the front.  Also, due to the fact that fiction tends to be in higher demand than nonfiction, we're swapping places between these two.  That involves quite a bit of shifting since they are our two largest collections, and that naturally takes a little bit of time.  You'll probably also notice a few other smaller sections that aren't in the same place, but rest assured, it will all be a worthwhile change in the end.  Thank you for your patience as we make this adjustment for you, our customers!
