AFTERCHOOL GAME TIME

Hey kids! Join us Wednesday, March 23  @ 3:15 for Afterschool Game Time. You and your friends can play a selection of board games and find out who can dominate with the roll of the dice instead of a handheld controller. All are welcome to try their hand at checkers, chess, Monopoly or many more games.

Toddlers Make Quilts

Photograph of "Quilts" Made at ToddlerTime With Ms. MandyDuring a recent ToddlerTime With Ms. Mandy, the toddlers made “quilts” which are now displayed in our children’s department and can be seen in these pictures.  ToddlerTime is on Thursdays at 10:15 a.m., and the program is repeated that same day at 11 a.m. If you have a toddler in your care (age 18 months to 3 years old), join us for stories, songs, movement, and playtime. Seasonal crafts, too! Free at the library.

TEXAS GOES HOLLYWOOD

March is Texas History Month. In honor of our great state we have a unique display presented by J. Mark Stamps from his collection of memorabilia. These are lobby posters depicting movies with Texas towns in the titles. Lobby posters were handed out in the golden age of the movie house to publicize movies. So stop by and look at these gems of a bygone era.

How to Find Events & Programs at the Library

There is a search tool on our website to find events and programs at various branches of Harris County Public Library. You can limit your search by age of the target audience, type of program, and branch location(s).  For example, you can do a search to find Teen programs that will be held at the La Porte, Freeman, and South Houston branches. Or you can look for nearby branches that have Storytimes for Toddlers…or Book Discussion groups…or Tax Assistance. All kinds of programs!  To use the search tool, click on Events Calendar on our home page.
