Hey kids, join us Wednesday September 7  for the first Afterschool Craft for this new school year. You will be creating a wooden snake to take home. The fun begins at 3:15 pm.


Now that school is back in session and homework is progressing full steam ahead, remember that with your Harris County Library card you have access to Homework Help databases 24/7. Just go to the (For ) Kids subject area. There you will find links to Searchasaurus  which includes a dictionary, an encyclopedia, and picture source. This particular database is aimed at Grades 3-6.  Enjoy exploring this database.

Winner of 2011 ReaderNation at La Porte

Photograph of Melissa Johnson-Rothmund Accepting ReaderNation Amazon Gift CardWe are pleased to announce that Melissa Johnson-Rothmund won the drawing for LAP for her participation in the ReaderNation portion of the Summer Reading Program. Melissa received a $50 gift card from Amazon as her prize. When asked what prompted her to sign up for ReaderNation, she said: “My son was signing up for summer reading and I wanted to encourage him.  And I decided it couldn’t hurt"! She said that her love for reading was passed on to her by her mother, and she, in turn, had passed on this love to her son. She said she “absolutely enjoyed” every book she logged in for the ReaderNation program.


Another summer full of entertaining and educational crafts and programming has come to a close. We want to give a big thank you to the Friends of La Porte Library for their financial support for all our summer activities. These dedicated people give of themselves weekly to ready the donated books for sale. 

With budgets as stretched as they are, it is the Friends membership dues, donations, and book sales that allow us to provide a richer summer for all our children and teens.
