Black History Month

 Come celebrate Black History Month in style! On Friday, February 20 at 1 PM, the Maud Marks Library will celebrate the contributions of African Americans to our nation's culture. Taylor High School Jazz Band will be here to give a short concert. Afterwards, join us for some African crafts and soul food as we learn all about African American culture.

Love Your Library

Jorge Luis Borges said, "have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library."  February is Love Your Library Month.  While we don't claim to  be Paradise here at Maud Marks we love to see you come in and use our library.  You are probably aware of most of the sections in the library, but did you know that we have a Classic Book section, a Reference Book section, and a Western Book section?  We also have many programs and activities going on every month.  You can down load books for free through our ebook programs and a new program that we are offering, Hoopla, you can access music, movies, TV programs, and books on tape. We also have a newsletter that we will send to your email.  All you have to do is sign up!  It is a great way to keep up with everything that goes on here!  Be sure to come by and see us this month to feel the love.  Or check out our programs or a book or two. :) 

Looking, Looking... Found!

 

 

I love this graphic... books, books everywhere. Harris County Public Library has over 2 million items available, but there might be a few we do not have. That’s why we offer a service called Interlibrary Loan. We can request a book or audio book for you from other libraries in the country. It could take a week or longer for the book to arrive, however, it is well worth the wait for a book that may not be available at your local library. Browse our catalog first to make sure we do not have it. Also, the title must be at least 6 months post-publication. Get your library card ready because the book can then be requested on-line or with a librarian at the library. It’s best to have an email address on your account for notifications. Due dates can vary depending on the lending library. Some books can be renewed and some cannot. Don’t give up until you give our Interlibrary Loan service a try. That book you want could be just around the corner. Call and speak to a librarian if you have any questions.  281-492-8592
