Train On at the Tomball Library!

Pokémon has become all the rage again with the release of Pokémon Go on Android and iOS. The game utilizes GPS location throughout the world to make a virtual playground for Pokémon. A lot of those Pokémon are appearing right here at our library.

Feel free to stop in for one of our many programs during the week and maybe grab a rare Pokémon while you're here. Or, you could battle one of the three 'gyms' right here on campus. Just make sure to play safely and follow the rules. If you're a pedestrian, please look away from your phone at roadways and in parking lots and look out for vehicles. When the library closes (at 9 p.m.) please refrain from wandering the campus. The campus itself closes at 10 pm.
