New Mural Celebrates Oil Town U.S.A.

As you walk through the front door of the library you’ll be greeted by this dynamic collage of historic photographic images of Tomball. The images come from the library’s Esther Bubley Photo Collection, a four-volume collection of black and white photographs of the people and industry of Tomball in 1945.

Bubley (1921-1998) was a gifted American freelance photojournalist who specialized in expressive photos of ordinary people in their everyday lives.

We're Expecting New Neighbors!

You may have wondered about the construction beside our front door. Lone Star College Tomball is building a new Performing and Fine Arts Building; a 30,000 square foot, two-level, multi-purpose instructional facility for training in theater and theatrical production. It will include a 425 seat theater and stage.

The Performing and Fine Arts Building is but one of three buildings LSC Tomball is building this year. The second is a new Veterinary Technology building going up on the far west side of campus. The third is a new Health Sciences Building for training nurses, adjacent to Tomball Hospital along Business Route 249.

Here is a link to an updated photo gallery of construction progress.
