Have Book Will Travel! The Trailer


Summer Reading begins in two weeks with an exciting international theme. Our Round Wall will feature books from every continent on this planet and from other worlds as well. The Children's and Young Adult departments will have a roster of fun and interesting programs; and they will not be alone. The Adult Department is working on a number of interesting programs to help and entertain you over the summer.

E*Book*Aid will be available in the front lobby every Monday afternoon from 2-4. A team of volunteer tech wizards will give you personal help with using your digital device to read and listen to electronic books.

Yes, We Really Were at Your Child’s School!

Starting today and over the next few weeks, your Tomball children’s staff will be visiting elementary schools in TISD to promote the upcoming Summer Reading Program: Have Book – Will Travel!  The program runs from June 3rd – August 10th.  When your child arrives home and barely able to catch their breath as they shout out “the lady from the library was at my school and it was so cool”, they are right!  For staff members like myself, it is always a wonderful experience to go into the schools, meet with the kids, share information about the library and programming, read a story and just have fun!  There’s been no “tall tale” concocted when they say we were there, because, “yes”, we really were at your child' s school!
