We're open Monday and Tuesday this week

Come in and pick up your books, audio books, and DVDs for Thanksgiving weekend Monday or Tuesday this week, because we'll be closed from Wednesday to Sunday inclusive for the Thanksgiving holiday. The HCPL branches situated on Lone Star College campuses close when their campuses close, unlike other HCPL branches, which will be open on Wednesday as well. 

Being Thankful and December!

  Hard to believe Thanksgiving is a week away and with it comes the start of the hustle and bustle of the holidays.  We hope that while you are busy shopping, planning and enjoying time with  family and friends, that you continue to visit the Library and enjoy all the special events and programs that are planned.  It all starts on Saturday, December 3rd with our annual Holiday open house.  Families are invited to join us from 10am - 2:00pm on the first floor of the llbrary for  holiday activities, crafts, music, snacks, a Friends of the Library book sale and a visit from Santa (bring your camera!). During the month of December In the Children's Area, the following special programs* will be offered:  gingerbread house decorating, ornament making, a special showing of a holiday classic movie about a "grinchy" creature who discovers the true meaning of the holidays and a noon years eve party to ring in 2017!  Starting  in December, all after school programs (with the exception of the R.E.A.D. program) will start at 5:00 pm - this will allow for more children to attend after getting home from school.  And finally, the Children's Department Staff (Kimberly, Genova, Ann, Allison, Paige, Jennifer and Amanda) would like to say THANK YOU to our wonderful children and parents for coming to the library, attending our programs and filling our days with so much fun!  For all December events, please access our online calendar or stop by any library service desk for a hard copy.  HAPPY THANKSGIVING! *these programs require pre-registration
