The 47th Annual Tomball Holiday Parade! Books carts, not just for shelving anymore!

Parade DeerIf you are planning on attending the Greater Tomball Area Chamber of Commerce's 47th Annual Holiday Parade on November 17th, we hope you'll cheer our marching group on! The dedicated and enthusiastic library staff will be pushing books carts along the parade route for your entertainment! Shhhh... we are currently putting together a top-secret book cart drill! If you have never heard of library cart drill teams, let me introduce you! Check it out! Librarians nationwide perform various themed-drills at many professional conferences. Yes, yes, we know it's out of the ordinary to hear this, but librarians and library staff need a little fun, too! See you at the Parade!

Chill at the library

After you've voted today, if you need a comfortable quiet place to get away from the election madness, come to the library!  We have coffee and soda and snacks. Curl up with a good book, listen to your iPod, play on one of our free computers, put your feet up, absorb the good qi; breathe. We're open until 9:30. The election won't be decided before then. Come and hide out, hang out, chill, take a break.

Come to the Puppet Workshop!

 Register now for the Puppet Workshop on Tuesday, November 6th at 4:30 pm in the Children's Department!  Children will learn about the amazing world of Shadow Puppetry and make their very own puppet to take home!  All supplies are provided and fun is guaranteed!  This program is limited to 15 children (3rd - 6th grade).  Call 832-559-4235 to register or for more information!

We need Tutors

Our English as a Second Language programs are burgeoning. Every week at the library we hold discussion groups that provide forums for practicing speaking English, and we also offer individual tutoring sessions--also at the library--at times convenient to the tutor and the student.

We're looking for more volunteers to tutor people who want to learn to speak, read, and write English. Are you interested? If you'd like to volunteer, please give Charity Martin a call at 832-559-4200.
