Programs for Adults

We are always trying to look for ways to enrich our community here at the South Houston Library.  We offer various programs for children throughout the year.  In addition, we also teach free computer classes for adults, but we feel we can add a little something extra.  That's why are goal is to offer atleast one adult program every month.  In April we are offering a presentation about nutrition and in May we will have a cake decorating class.  If you have any suggestions for future topics or speakers, please let me know.  If you'd like to find out more about our upcoming programs, call us at 713-941-2385 or go to our calendar of events.
