Celebrate Summer Reading!

On Your Mark! Get Set! READ!

Come and join in our Tomball Summer Reading Program! We are now into our third week. Yesterday children enjoyed a wonderful Mad Science program about nutrition; next week they can enjoy Texas Snakes and More (with live examples). In July come and participate in  the Hansel and Gretel marionette puppet show and a live performance of the Wizard of Oz. And that's only a sampling of the free programs we're offering here at the children's level.

For teens, we offer free programs every Tuesday afternoon at 3 pm. They include board games, crafts, and henna skin design creation. We are also offering one teen art camp and two LEGO Robotics Camps! One day soon we'll read an entire Harry Potter book. Stay tuned for that! Come and find the Astros Orbit mascot hidden in the library and put your name into a drawing to win one.

And then there's the summer-long reading and activity program. Read ten books or do ten activities and win a prize. We have a baby level, and children's, teens, and adult level programs. Join us!

Our pole vault standards on the perimeter of the entrance display shown in the photo is a celebration of the number of people who have joined and the number of people who have completed the reading and activity challenges so far. As of the middle of last week, we had 352 people signed up and 42 people have completed their challenge already. Our hope is to top that standard on the left with 1200 participants and to get as many people to the top of the completion standard on the right as we can.
