Thank You to the Friends of the Tomball Library

After years of dedicated service, the members of the Friends of the Tomball Library have decided to retire. Their volunteer efforts supported staff and the community through countless successful Summer Reading Programs, holiday celebrations, building moves, and more. We at the library appreciate their efforts to spread a love of literacy and the library throughout the community. These committed volunteers have touched the lives of many people in the community, and we express thanks for their years of steadfast service.

Here’s to a wonderful retirement!
