Share Your Holidays Food Drive

The annual Share Your Holidays Food Drive will be held this Friday, December 10th in the library parking area!  Please bring your non-perishable food donations by the library between the hours of 6:00 am and 6:00 pm.  We will have live entertainment by the Taylor High School Jazz band at 9:00 am, and at 4:00pm don't miss the hand bell performance by the Living Bells of Living Word Lutheran Church.   We also have a collection box in the library if you would like to drop off your donations earlier. All donations will go to Katy Christian Ministries and will stay within the area.

The Library Doesn't Close for Thanksgiving!

O.K. maybe no librarian will be at the library this coming weekend, Nov. 25- Nov. 28.  Yes, perhaps the front doors at Maud Marks library will remain locked... but, that doesn't mean we're closed.  Harris County Public Libraries are ALWAYS open online here at  You can find books, place holds, check your account, and pay fines using our catalog
