Guess how many books we've checked out this (fiscal) Year!

We move a lot of books.

I thought you might be interested to know that 433,711 books, DVDs, and CD audiobooks have been checked out of LSC-Tomball Community Library branch  since March 1st, the beginning of our fiscal year.  That's our part in over seven million total checkouts across the county in that time. We move a lot of books!

We have also checked out an impressive number of electronic books. Since March 1st,  328,558 Adult and Young Adult electronic books and e-audiobooks have checked out across Harris County Public Library's reach, plus 80,483 children's TumbleBooks electronic books, for an eBook total of 298,799. This summer we added a collection of electronic audio books called OneClickdigital and already there are just under 5,000 checkouts from that  catalog.

Come and enjoy Holiday Fest this Saturday!

The holiday season is kicking into high gear. We have TWO celebrations you won't want to miss THIS WEEKEND. Here's the first one...

Lone Star College's famous HOLIDAY FEST is THIS FRIDAY, November 30, from 5-9 pm. On the north side of the campus loop. Expect bounce houses, hay rides, train rides, children's games and crafts; live performances, special guest appearances, photos with Santa, and more. There will be cookies, punch, and coffee, and you will be able to buy hot dogs and soda for 50 cents each. So that's at 30555 Tomball Parkway (aka Highway 249), north of downtown Tomball. It's best to use the north entrance to the campus, over by the Beckendorf Center.
