Postcard Club

The Postcard Club meets here at the library this Saturday!
They meet every 3rd Saturday at 2:00 pm at the Tomball Library to socialize, talk about their postcard collections, and trade postcards. Then they discuss new and old business and listen to a postcard related presentation. There are no dues; all activities are free, and everyone is welcome. Their collections are amazing and span decades of history and styles.So that's this Saturday, June 15, at 2 pm, in Room 212--the second floor Conference Room.

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.
