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.

Happy Holidays everyone!  At the library, we've always celebrated this time of year in style with our annual Santa's Ranch.  Come out this Saturday 1-4 PM for food, crafts, music, facepainting, and of course a visit with the big guy himself.

At 1 PM join us as the Living Bells Handbell Choir plays holiday favorites such as "Home for the Holidays" and "Here Comes Santa Claus".  Then at 2 and 3 PM, listen to Christmas jazz played first on a trumpet then a saxaphone.

While you are here, don't forget to visit Santa's Gift Shop to pick up that last minute Christmas present!
