Happy (almost) New Year!

Even though schools are closed remember that the library is open!  Here at the Maud Marks Branch the only difference in our regular hours is that we close at 5 pm on Monday, December 31 and are closed on New Year's Day.  There are no programs when we're closed but we have plenty going on for the next couple of weeks including family movies at 2 pm on weekdays through Jan 7 and story times for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers.  You don't have to have a library card to attend programs or visit the library so feel free to bring your guests too!  Don't forget that we also have a variety of eBooks and eAudio materials that you can check out whether we're open or not; all you need is a library card. 

It's Movie Time!

In Katy, School is out for 2 weeks and 1 day.  The Maud Marks Library is open for 8 of those days.  Come everyday we're open @ 2 PM for movie day complete with popcorn.  We will be showing the following animated classics:

Santa's Gift Shop and Family Film Festival

The Friends of the Maud Marks Library is sponsoring Santa’s Gift Shop. Gently used books have been packaged together for gift-giving for the holidays. Come in and select a gift for an avid reader. There are mysteries, romances, biographies and more.  

The library will be closed Saturday, Dec. 22 through Tuesday, Dec. 25, 2012.  We will reopen on Wednesday, Dec. 26.  Each weekday for the rest of the month, a family movie will be shown at 2:00 pm. Bring the family for a fun movie and popcorn.  Call the library at 281-492-8592 for more details.

E-Gifts for the Holidays

Want to check out a variety of e-readers without the sales pressure?  Sign up for the e-gifts program this Saturday, December 15 at 10am at the Maud Marks Branch Library.  You’ll get to try a variety of e-readers and learn more about borrowing materials from the Harris County Public Library eBranch.  Seating for this program is extremely limited so sign up today!

Holiday Storytime Schedule

Our infant times, toddler times, and pre-school storytimes during the holidays will be easy to remember. If the library is open, then storytime is as usual; if we are closed,  then there is no storytime.  So during winter break there is no toddler time on Tuesday, December 25 or Tuesday, January 1.
