Calling Crafty Kids

Crafty kids are invited to a smorgasbord of crafts at 2:30 pm this Thursday at Parker Williams. Crafters will have a choice of several different crafts recommended for children age 5 and up. No tickets are required.

Movie Madness

Our August Movie Madness selections will have you quaking with fear and dancing in the aisles.

Join us at 2:30 pm Thursday, Aug. 13, for a tale about a girl who enters a parallel world that mimics her own. Then, at 4 pm Thursday, Aug. 27, rock out to the story about a pop star with a secret identity who returns to her rural Tennessee roots just in time to help her hometown battle ruthless developers. We'll have prizes for the best Hoedown Throwdown dancers!



Calling All Young Art Aficionados!

Children between the ages of 6 and 12 are invited to participate in our annual art camp at two locations: Parker Williams Library and Cy-Fair College Library. Art Camp runs this coming week, Monday, August 3rd through Friday, August 7th from 10am-12pm.

During Art Camp, children will read books and do art projects in reference to the books they read. During the week, participants will have the opportunity to visit the Museum of Fine Arts for a tour. If you are interested in registering your child but are curious about what the program entails, check out our photo collection from last year’s Art Camp.

The libraries with openings are:

Teens Tackle Tons of Tasks

They want to help, and help they do.

Moving tables. Stacking chairs. Playing with children. Registering readers. Prepping crafts. Shelving videos. Straightening, straightening and more straightening. A core group of five teen volunteers is keeping busy helping the Summer Reading Program run smoothly at Parker Williams.

Volunteer Annie Pham shares a good book with Eleni.

They have one theme in common: They want to help out.

“I decided to volunteer here because I wanted to get involved in the community and help out,” second year volunteer Annie Pham, 14, says. Annie especially likes working in the children’s area “because I get to hear them have fun.”
