Make a Difference!

Via our partnership with the Lone Star College System and its partnerships with The Academy and Target Hunger, the LSC-Tomball Community Library is collecting canned and non-perishable foods through the first half of June. Many area residents rely on nutritional assistance from organizations like Target Hunger. Through the summer the need is greater because more than 20% of school children go without the free or reduced priced breakfasts and lunches available at school. Help us help our community’s hungry. You can put your donated items into the collection barrels by the library elevators and in the Children’s Department. Thanks for anything you can do.

Summer Reading has Begun!

Ready for those beach reads? Remember, if you’re having trouble with downloading electronic and audio library books to your Kindle, Nook, iPad, iPhone, Samsung, or other electronic device, E*Book*Aid will be available in the front lobby every Monday afternoon this summer from 2-4. A team of tech wizards will give you personal help with using your digital device so you can read and listen to electronic library books wherever your summer may take you!

This Saturday morning, in the first of our several Adult programs this summer, you'll be able to Learn the Art of Quilling--that's about making those impressive delicate spirally things made of paper. Just like in the photo on the left. That’s Saturday morning, June 8th at 10 o'clock in Room L 129. There are spaces for 24 people.
