Library “Bluebonnets” in the “Lone Star” State

      Some students in Texas are required to read the Texas Bluebonnet Award books or the Texas Lone Star books. If you don’t have the list and need to place a request on these books, there is a quick way to access the lists through our catalog. Go to www.hcpl.net and in the search box type “2016-17 Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List” (in quotes) or “2016 Texas Lone Star Reading List” (in quotes), or click on the links in this blog. You can place a hold on them by signing in with your card number and pin number.

Still in the Heart of Tax Season

Yes, the Maud Marks Library is closed tomorrow and AARP will not be here to help with tax returns.  Don't worry though!  There is plenty of time left in the tax season this year.  In fact, due a holiday in Washington D.C., your taxes are not due until April 18.  That means AARP will continue to be out here on Mondays and Fridays through April 18.  You can come get your returns done on a first come, first served basis on Mondays March 28, April 4, 11, and 18 AND Fridays April 1, 8, and 15.
