HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH

Hispanic Heritage Month goes through October 15, 2006.  Drop by and see our decorations and the posters made by the Spanish Honor Society of Morton Ranch High School While you are here you may want to pick up a coloring sheet or a book on the Hispanic cultures and countries.  We have spanish language books for all ages.

Lend a Hand

Looking for service hours? Want to help out the library? We’re looking for volunteers at the Maud Marks Branch Library. You can pick up an application at the Information Desk; be sure to include your requested schedule and if you’re under 18 your parent or guardian needs to sign too.

Please note that all teen volunteers must attend an orientation session before starting. If you’re interested you’re in luck - our October volunteer orientation session is next Tuesday, October 6 at 7pm. See you there!   

Is That a Dinosaur?

At the Maud Marks Library, we love history and art.  That is why we are so excited to welcome retired Houston Chronicle Artist, Gerald Waxman this Thursday at 7 PM.  He will be here to discuss his renditions of 17,000 to 30,000 year old paintings found in Southern France before World War II.  Many of the animals depicted have been considered extinct and some are considered to be ancestoral to today's species.  Examples of other cave paintings throughout the world will also be shown.  Register here  to join us for this event.

Lots to Do @ Maud Marks

Looking for a fun and free event? Be sure to attend the Annual Hispanic Heritage Festival tomorrow, September 26, from noon-4pm at Maud Marks Branch Library. There’s food, fun, and crafts!
