Delores "Moon" Smith Exhibiting in Room L129

This month we have the pleasure of exhibiting the oil and water-soluble oil paintings of Delores "Moon" Smith. Delores is a local painter, who grew up painting and drawing portraits, landscapes, and more. She's a member of the Tomball Art League and she gives private and semi-private lessons. What you see here is a self-portrait.

New Books!

 The good news:   it seems that every day we get a delivery of brand new books!  Included is an assortment of the latest picture, fiction, non-fiction, graphic novels, series and even Spanish language books.  When you first enter the Children’s area, you will notice a wooden pyramid display to your left.  This is the location where new books are displayed for you to look at and check out.  The bad news: it is first come first served and the new books tend to get checked out very fast!  When returned after their first check out, these books are shelved among the other books in our ever growing Children's collection.  If there is a book that you'd like for your child and it isn't at the Library when you visit, your friendly library staff will be happy to search the catalog, find and request the book of your choice…just ask!

We Need Even More ESL Tutors

Ten weeks ago I wrote that our English as a Second Language programs are burgeoning and that we need tutors. A number of people have signed up and we’re so grateful. But now we need even more tutors because even more people are asking to learn English.

In case you’re not aware of our programs, 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. We provide training and support and no, you do not need to know a second language to teach people English. Are you interested? If you'd like to volunteer, please give Charity Martin a call at 832-559-4200.
