Library Hours this Memorial Day Weekend

US FlagsEach Memorial Day we honor the brave men and women who have fallen while serving in the United States Armed Forces. In observance of the holiday, the library will remain open regular hours Friday and Saturday, but will be closed this coming Monday, May 26. The library will reopen for business Tuesday, May 27 at 8:00 am.

Quickbooks Workshop moved to College Teaching Theatre, Room E-100

Due to overwhelming popular demand, the free SCORE Quickbooks Workshop scheduled for Saturday, May 17th, has far surpassed the capacity of the library's meeting room. So we have moved it into Room E-100 of the College.

So here are the revised directions! Drive into LSC-Tomball College's south entrance, take the first right into the library, and park where you expected to park, in the library lot. Come in the front door of the library; walk through and out the back door, across the lovely patio, and into the Commons Building. Immediately turn right into the East Hall and then immediately left into the Teaching Theatre, Room E-100. See you there!

 

Thank You LSC Tomball Community Library ESL Tutors


Lone Star College Tomball Community Library would like to thank the ESL tutors who attended the ESL In-service about Teaching Reading and Using News For You.

The workshop covered a variety of Reading techniques, activities and strategies. The tutors were told about the free language software, Rosetta Stone and how it could benefit the students who cannot attend face-to-face classes this summer. The tutors were also shown how to use the library language database, Mango Languages.


We want to make sure that the community is aware of all the HCPL opportunities to learn English during the 2014 summer vacation season.


If you would like more information, call the library at 832-559-4200.
