Many Adult Activities at the Library

Wow!  I was just looking at the calendar and we sure have a lot going on at Maud Marks over the next week!

Do you want to help out in the community?  On Saturday we have an English as a Second Language tutor training session starting at 9 AM.  In just 4 hours, we'll prepare you to teach adults from various countries English.  You don't even have to speak another language to help out; in fact, we prefer that you don't!  All we ask of you is a commitment of 1 1/2 hours per week through May.  Just think how rewarding it will be to help someone acclimate to life here in the Katy area!

Volunteers Needed at Maud Marks!

Are you in junior high or older and would like to earn some volunteer hours?  Next week, Oct 15-20, is our Patron Count Week.  We need volunteers to count people coming into the building for all of the hours that we’re open.  It’s easy to do and you can even read or do your homework while you’re counting! 


If you’re interested we have lots of spaces available so please call Sarah at 281-492-8592 or stop by the information desk to sign up.  You can still volunteer for Patron Count Week if you haven’t come to orientation but we do need you to fill out a volunteer application.


Thanks for your help!
