An Invitation: To Read outside [your personal] box!

Summer is almost upon us and so are our summer reading programs. We, in the Adult department will be challenging our readers to s-t-r-e-t-c-h yourselves with your summer reading this year. Whatever your favorite kinds of books, be they Inspirational, Thrillers, Science Fiction, or Mysteries, we're encouraging you to try something else! We'll be putting up bookmarks with some ideas for you--look for them in the Fiction department and upstairs in Non-Fiction.

And remember that we're happy to request anything you don't see on the shelf, either from another branch or via interlibrary loan from across the country.


Learn all about the art of Masks and have fun creating your own!  This program will meet on Monday,   May 23rd at 1:00 pm and Tuesday, May 24th  at 4:30 pm.  Each session is limited to 20 children (2nd – 6th grade)

Stop by the Children’s Reference desk or call 832-559-4235 to register!

Come Stitch with Us

If needlework of any kind is your hobby, please join our Sit and Stitch group to share needlework and conversation. It meets twice in a week, once in the evening and once in the morning, to suit people's schedules.

The evening group meets every Tuesday from 6:30 -8:00. The morning group meets every Thursday from 10:00-noon. Both groups meet in the first floor Meeting Room, room L-129.

Both groups are open to people of all ages and like all our library programs, it's free.

Anyone can “read” a story...but planning and presenting a story time is truly an art form!  Your Tomball children’s staff carefully selects themes and searches for books, songs, fingerplays and crafts that are age appropriate for the child in attendance.  As always, the number one goal for a storyteller is for your child to have a wonderful experience and leave with a big smile on their face!   For a complete schedule of weekly story times please access theTomball branch calendar or call 832-559-4235.  We look forward to seeing you and your child at story time!
