Giving Back

Are you looking for a way to give back to your community?  Consider becoming a English as a Second Language tutor.  Harris County Public Library offers an English as a Second Language program for adults in the Katy community and we are looking for tutors.  Tutor just one student or teach an entire class.  Don't worry if you don't speak a foreign language, we want your students to be speaking English anyway!  If you are interested in this valuable volunteer experience, we encourage you to join us for a tutor training session next Saturday, March 6 from 9 AM to 3 PM.  We will provide for you all training materials and a free lunch.  All we ask in return is that you actively support the ESL program here at Maud Marks for at least 9 months.  Please click here to register for this volunteer opportunity.

How to Party

Learning How to Fold "A Thousand Paper Cranes"    Learning How to Fold "A Thousand Paper Cranes"

At the Maud Marks Library, we know how to party right.  This was evidenced on Monday night at our annual ESL party.  ESL students and their tutors gathered for a night of food and fun.  Everyone brought a dish from their native country.  One of the students showed of her paintings she did on rice paper.  One of the tutors spoke about how much fun her class has had over the years.  Still another student taught the group how to make an origami crane.
