Harris County Libraries Serve as Warming Centers

Residents seeking shelter from the frigid temperatures can head to their local library.  All 25 Harris County branch libraries will open at 9 am on Friday, January 8 and Saturday, January 9 to serve as warming centers for the public. 

Closing hours will vary depending on the branch.

For The Children/Para Los Niños

We will be holding special workshops for parents and children to work together learning how to succeed in different areas of life.  The first one will be held in the meeting room, on the 12th of January at 10:30 am.  The subject will be on "How Your Child Learns".  All classes will be presented in English only.  After each session parents will be asked to fill out a survey and they will receive one free ticket to the Children's Museum.  How cool is that?!  So, please come up to the Octavia Fields Circulation Desk and sign up today.  For those that don't get a chance to sign up, don't worry; "walk-ins" are welcome.

Kids Driving Ya Nuts Yet?

Bring 'em on down to Octavia Fields Library!  We'll be doing two movies this month, one tomorrow, December 22 and one next Tuesday, December 29, 2009. They're brand new releases the kids are sure to love!! One is about a group of furry super heroes, the other is an indepth look at a night in a museum... so be there, 4:30 in the meeting room, on the big screen!! Popcorn and water is provided!


Bells will not be ringing, but music will certainly be in the air at Octavia Fields on Monday, December 14, 2009.  Peggy Carter, a talented composer, and award-winning hammer dulcimer player, will be performing beautiful Holiday songs for everyone's entertainment from 4pm to 6pm.  So, please join us for the musical festivities!
