Memorial Day USA

Harris County Public Libraries will be closed on Memorial Day, May 28, 2012. Memorial Day is a day to remember those who have given their all in service to our country.  It was originally called Decoration Day to honor the decorated veterans.  Decorating graves goes back to before the Civil War. Read about it and pass the stories along.

Let's Beat the Heat! Without Breaking the Bank.

OK, I don't know about you but my electric bill is already climbing, and May just started.  Wow!  It is hot outside!  Can you just imagine what it's going to be like in August.  Ugh!  Who can afford the air conditioning bill?!

Guess what, at the Maud Marks Library, we have the answer to your electric needs.  Next Tuesday, May 15 at 7 PM we will have some one here to show you simple ways to cut your energy costs this summer.  Whether it's raising the temperature in your house by one degree or changing out your light bulbs learn what you can do to save money this summer without breaking a sweat.

Look Out for Lions!

If you missed it we had lots of fun last Saturday at the Maud Marks Asian Pacific Heritage Festival!  Performers and patrons came from all over the area to make crafts, sample food, and watch the lions dance for a finale.  

Thank a Nurse - National Nurse's Week

National Nurses Week is a week that we can pay tribute to the thousands of nurses who dedicate their lives to caring for others. The week began on Sunday, May 6th, with National Nurses Day; continues May 8th as National Student Nurses Day, and concludes on May 12th which is International Nurses Day and also Florence Nightingale’s birthday. Nightingale is considered to be the founder of modern nursing. Her legacy lives on in the pledge that all nurses make before they begin their profession.
