Jazz & Poetry

Come celebrate Black History Month in style! On Saturday, February 20 at 2 PM, Jazz Education Inc. will be at the Maud Marks Library to celebrate the contributions of African Americans to our nation’s culture. Through music and poetry this 45 minute program is an inspirational lesson that celebrates the historic contribution and achievements of great Americans including Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington. While you are here, check out our wall of who’s who in African American history. How many can you name? Join us for an afternoon of poetry and music as we celebrate Black History Month.


Posters for this program were designed by our Teen Time computer class.

Remember When . . .

Stop by and look at our Books for All Free for All display of pictures and memorabilia! These items are from the beginning of the Harris County Public Library from the 1920s through the 1930s. Here at the Maud Marks Branch display we have photos, McGuffey Readers, and more! You can even record your memories of the library in a notebook.  


At Maud Smith Marks Library we think it is a just a “Bear Necessity” to have a comfortable place to read and a good book to read. We are happy when our readers are happy. So come in. Look around for a nice cozy place and enjoy.
