Sweet Santa

Our Santa Apple from the Snodgrass family has arrived at the Maud Marks Branch Library!  Look for him at the customer service desk and if you'd like instructions to make your own Santa Apple click here.  Be sure to check out our craft books for even more holiday decorating ideas! 

Slow Cooking for the Fast Moving

     The month of December can be a time of "hustle and bustle"... so what better time to use your slow cooker. It's nice to have a hot meal ready and waiting for you and the family after a day at work, school, or shopping.  Whether you check out the book or download it...

Share Your Holidays Friday, December 9!


It’s easy to help feed area families this holiday season!  Bring your donation of non-perishable foods to the Maud Marks Branch Library this Friday, December 9 from 6 am to 6pm.  We’re one of the collection sites for Channel 13’s Share Your Holidays food drive, and your donations benefit Katy families.  Taylor High School’s Jazz Band will be playing around 9:30 am so even though we don't open until 1pm you can stop by and hear some great music!

If you can’t make it Friday we have a donation box in the library and you can drop off items anytime we’re open this week.  Thanks for sharing your holidays!

What Would We Do Without Our Friends?

 Charlotte Brooks and Glenda Lindsay, two very special people, are celebrating their birthdays in early December. Their endless help with our book sales make it possible for us to have all the wonderful programs we offer.  Charlotte and Glenda are also on the Friends of Maud Marks Library board. Thanks Charlotte and Glenda for all your support and  we hope you have  wonderful birthdays. :)
