Thank You LSC Tomball Community Library ESL Tutors


Lone Star College Tomball Community Library would like to thank the ESL tutors who attended the ESL In-service about Teaching Reading and Using News For You.

The workshop covered a variety of Reading techniques, activities and strategies. The tutors were told about the free language software, Rosetta Stone and how it could benefit the students who cannot attend face-to-face classes this summer. The tutors were also shown how to use the library language database, Mango Languages.


We want to make sure that the community is aware of all the HCPL opportunities to learn English during the 2014 summer vacation season.


If you would like more information, call the library at 832-559-4200.

When you see Alicia Mitchell’s artwork in Room L-129 this month you’ll immediately feel her warmth and humanity. A lifelong resident of El Paso, she moved to Spring when she retired in 2001 and took up painting with a passion. She works in oils, acrylics, pastels, charcoal, colored pencil, collage, and clay; but her exhibition this month features some of her oil paintings and collages. C’mon by!
