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.

The Gift Everyone can Use

   Do you know people who are hard or impossible to buy for?  Maybe they have everything! Maybe you don't know them that well.  Maybe you don't know their tastes.  Well, there is one gift that everyone can use. Money.  It is the perfect gift when you don't know what to give.  Wouldn't it be nice to have a special way to give money.

Find Your Dream Job

Are you ready to stretch your wings in your professional life?  Are you still looking for a job and starting to get frustrated?  Join us for Dream Job month at the Maud Marks Library!  Dream Job month runs April 15- May 19th as we offer various types of assistance to our customers in "job search mode".  

We have a preview of our month beginning right now with our job search display which can be found right as you walk in the library's doors.  Our display contains many books on resumes, interviewing, and the entire job search process.

Then, we begin on Tuesday, April 15th at 7 PM with the City of Houston Office of Business Opportunity.  They will be at the Maud Marks Library to take our customers through all the steps needed to start their own business.  Why work for others when you can work for yourself.  (Don't worry if you can't make it that night, we'll have more opportunities later.)
