Thank You for Celebrating our 10th Anniversary!

On behalf of the LSC-Tomball Community Library staff, and the Friends of the Tomball Library, I would like to express a heartfelt thank you to the community and college members who came out this weekend to help us celebrate the library’s 10-Year Anniversary in this building.  It was a wonderful event filled with fun and festivities, and it was made all the more special by your participation.

If you missed the big day, please look forward to the continuous offerings that go on at the library, year in and year out, month to month, and day after day.  There is truly something for everyone, and absolutely everyone is welcome.  We offer story times, computer classes, book clubs, business presentations, holiday and seasonal programming, cultural heritage events, bus trips for seniors and much, much more.  So, please join us soon for something great, and help us kick-off our next ten years!

Sonia Rodriguez: Prints Writ Large

As we approach our tenth anniversary we’re delighted to feature the artwork of one of our own staff members, Circulation Assistant Sonia Rodríguez. In the previous five years Sonia has taught elementary school art for the Klein district. While at the Rhode Island School of Design, Sonia experienced working in a variety of media. Included in her display are a series of woodblock prints,etchings, and paintings depicting both human and animal nature.          

Most people who create woodblock prints print them in a hand operated press. The print you see in the image at left was created under a steam roller! Sonia thinks outside the box and is not afraid to experiment.

She currently continues her practice in an independent studio in Spring.
