Summer Reading Program now Complete

A big “Thank You!” to everyone who participated in any way in our Summer Reading Program, which wrapped up this Saturday with an exuberant Sock Hop. For those of you who are wondering, you can finish up your reading lists and come in for prizes for the rest of this week. 

Watch for our fall programs, about to begin!

End Of Summer Celebration!

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone came to Tomball Library

Today the magical world of Harry Potter came to Tomball Community Library. Two live screech owls appeared and were discussed in the Children’s Department; Platform 93/4 emerged and people made snapshots of themselves in front of it; staff wore Hogwarts costumes, and the entire first book of the Harry Potter series was read. Although it may not be appropriate to blow our own horns, the staff involved did a magically wonderful job!
