Meet Bubbles!

  After a tense week of voting, a decision has been made.  The children have overwhelmingly decided on Bubbles to be the name of our new Beta Fish!  Name or no name, he has been a big hit with the children. Next time you are in the Library, stop  by the Children's Reference desk and visit with him! 

A Furniture Facelift

furnitureEarlier this year, the Tomball Library celebrated its 10th anniversary on the Lone Star-College campus. After ten years of constant use, we thought it was time for a furniture facelift. New chairs (in lovely purple fabrics to match the colors in the carpeting) and tables are now scattered throughout the first floor of the library. Look for them by the book drop, the shelves of DVDs, the shelves of New Books, and other places.

Stop by the library sometime soon and tell us what you think of our new furniture!

The importance of your role in the customer’s buying journey

Artist's Date: a collage

Here are some photos of our 4th Artist's Date yesterday. We spent the morning sketching or painting a lovely floral arrangement donated to us by Cornelius Flowers in Tomball. In the afternoon Bill Epps gave two demonstrations; how to draw perspective and how to paint an under-painting for your watercolor painting. 

Artist's Date this Thursday!

Drop your chores, pick up your art supplies and your lunch, and come and enjoy a mellow day at the library with other Adult artists. We've been doing this about every six months--this is our fourth 'date', and it's a lovely time to meet other artists in the community and do a little of the painting or sketching that you might otherwise leave until all your other pressing activities are complete!

We'll meet at about 10:00 a.m. (or whenever you get here) to do our own thing for the morning. Then we'll break for lunch (the library will provide a light dessert and coffee). Afterwards, Bill Epps, a retired architect, will give us a demonstration about various aspects of painting architectural features in watercolor. I don't know everything he plans to do, but learning how to draw in perspective and how to paint an effective under-painting are on the list. 

We'll be in the area at the front of the library that we call the 'Sun Room'; behind the elevators and between the Westerns and the CD Audiobooks. Join us if you can!
