Don't be a Statistic!

In the last 12 months alone, 9 million Americans were victimized by identity theft. Don't become a statistic yourself!  There are steps you can take today to safeguard your personal information. This Monday at 6:30 PM, the Harris County Sheriff's office will be here to host a seminar that can help you avoid identity theft and financial fraud. Our presentation will include information on common scams to watch out for and identity theft warning signs. Don't allow yourself to be victimized.  Seating for this class is extremely limited.

Ask Me About My Card

That first library card is a pretty cool thing to own.  Customers who carry our library card this month also get bragging rights in the form of these cool stickers.  Just ask at the Maud Marks Branch.  I really like the "I've been carded" sticker for adults!

AIN'T NO MOUNTAIN TOO HIGH; AIN'T NO LIBRARY TOO DARK

It's so true with Maud Marks Library. When it comes to reading our customers are very dedicated. No lights, no problem. No air conditioning, no problem. No computers. We will be resourceful. With pencils, papers and flashlights we continued checking out books, cds, dvds and magazines. It happened Friday afternoon, Aug 27 at our library. Our customers were so wonderful that they offered to write down the barcodes for us. Everybody had so much fun.
