eBooks Everywhere!!!

Tired of carrying those heavy library books from place to place? Do you wish that you could just check out books from the convenience of your own home? Well, you are in luck! The Maud Marks Library will be offering an eBooks class this Tuesday, January 24 at 7:00 PM in the computer lab. In this class you will learn what an eBook is and the services the Harris County Public Library offers for them.

Please bring your mobile device and we'll show how to find and download eBooks and/or audio books. Please bring your library card. If you don't have a device you can practice on ours. So come on by this Tuesday to the Maud Marks Library, and become an eBook reader!

2016 Tax Forms

The 2016 tax forms are here. You can pick up the 1040, 1040A and the 1040EZ forms in the lobby. Although, the instruction booklets have not arrived. You can access the IRS website for the instructions and all other forms. The AARP tax help will start in February. 


Recovering the Classics Open to Voting

Back in November we began our Recovering the Classics program. For the program we encouraged people to recreate the covers of classic books because many of the covers are outdated or auto-generated. Now our Pop Up Art Gallery is available for viewing and voting in the library. You can also view and vote online by following the links below or beginning at 11 AM on January 14, 2017 you'll be able to vote on Twitter by using the appropriate hashtags and tagging @MaudMarks. We're asking you to check out each cover and then vote on your favorite in each of the three categories.


Which is your favorite cover? (Adults Category)

Our Recovering the Classics Art Gallery is now available for viewing and voting both online and in the library. All of the covers were designed by customers who frequent the library. These are the entries for the Adults Category (Ages 18+). You can click the links within the poll to view each entry and then select your favorite. The design that receives the most votes will win a copy of the classic book they chose which will feature their art as the cover.

Online polls do NOT reflect in-library voting.
