April Showers Bring May Flowers

It’s that time of year again when the flowers are blooming and the weather is warming up. Great reason to come to the library to get information on gardening. Are you designing your yard to win the Yard of the Month in your neighborhood? When is a good time to plant vegetables? Have you prepared the soil properly? We can help.

And don’t forget the Green Thumb Master Gardening Series this month is on Saturday, May 17 at 10 am. They will be discussing Insects in Your Garden. Register soon before it's "crawling with" people.

Job Seminar Continues on Monday

Our month of job assistance got of to a great start last week with our Steps to Starting Your Own Business seminar.  (Did you miss it?  Don't worry, we'll have another one on May 17th.)  It continued this past Monday with our session on resumes, cover letters, and applications.  If you've missed any of them, don't worry, it's not too late to jump in there and join us!

This Monday, April 28 at 10 AM, Texas Workforce Solutions will be here to continue the series with the next seminar, Networking & Using Social Media.  Learn the ins and outs of networking to find your next job as well as how to properly use social media websites such as LinkedIn and more.  All this in a 2 hour class.

Of course, we do ask that you sign up for these and other classes offered here at the library.  You can register by clicking here now.

Book Sale Saturday!

Yea!  It's time again for the Friends of the Maud Marks Library's book sale.  This Saturday check out all our gently used books that are selling for rock bottom prices.  We have thousands of books or sale and our prices beat anything you'll find at Half Price books.  Best of all, the money stays right here to support our library.  

If you look around the library you will notice the felt wall in the children's section, the technology tables in the adult section, and the displays everywhere.  These things and so much much more were donated by the Friends.  But they can't do it alone.  They need your support through their book sales and other fundraising opportunities to help povide for our library community's needs.

If you really want to help out, become a Friend!  You can find out how by speaking to a librarian or a Friend when ou come for the book sale.
