The Fun Doesn't Stop Here | La Diversión No Se Acaba Aquí


The Summer Reading Program was so much fun! We had great programs for the kids. To end the Summer Reading Program we invited Happy the Clown over to our library. He always makes us laugh. He did a few magic tricks and gave out some prizes. Even though this program is the last one for our Summer Reading Program, it is not the last one ever. We will still have lots of fun programs at South Houston Library for you to enjoy! 

Ay Ay Captain! | Ay Ay Capitan!


We had a blast watching Peter Pan on Wednesday! We even had popcorn and soda.  To follow up on our fun, we had pirate face painting the next day.  All the kids looked like real pirates!

Grilling Time! | ¡Tiempo para parilladas!

Summer time is a great time to grill outside.  If you are looking for delicious grilling recipes, check out one of our books!  Weber's way to grill: the step-by-step guide to expert grilling is a great book for beginners.  It has lots of great colorful pictures and helpful tips even for the experienced.  Take a look at our catalog or come to our library.  We can help you find what you need.
