Enjoy the Postcard Club

Did you know that a Postcard Club meets here at the library?
They meet every 3rd Saturday at 3:00 pm at the Tomball Library to socialize, talk about their postcard collections, and trade postcards. Then they discuss new and old business and listen to a postcard related presentation. There are no dues; all activities are free, and everyone is welcome.
Their collections are amazing and span decades of history and styles.
They will be meeting this Saturday, December 15th at 3:00 pm, in Room 212--the second floor Conference Room. Come, join in, and share your collection with the group.
 

Storytime is Truly an Art Form!

       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, activities 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! 

Please access our weekly storytime calendar and other children's programs and events!

And, every Tuesday at 6:30 pm we will offer a Family Storytime for children ages 3-6.  Please note this program does not begin until January 22, 2013For information about any of our programs, call 832-559-4235.

Write Your Writer!

Book Cover Drop Dead HealthyRecently, I took time out to write to one of my favorite authors, A. J. Jacobs. I have read all of his books as well as tracked down his Esquire Magazine articles! If you are unfamiliar with A. J. Jacobs, he is essentially willing to experiment with convention and document his findings with great humor and self-reflection.
