What a Wonderful Summer We Had

Drumming Program at Lone Star College-CyFairOnce again, we had a wonderful Summer Reading Program this year at Lone Star College-CyFair Library. We had 1368 children register this year which was the highest number of any of the Harris County Public Library branches. Go Cy-Fair!

We also had well over 7000 children and 3000 adults attend our 270+ programs this summer which included such activities as a Dr. Pepper Party, County Line Dancing Lessons, Drumming with N8 Rhythm, Texas Snakes, Knitting and Crocheting and much, much more.

Be sure to check out our photos of all the fun times we had this summer on our Flickr Page.

Parking Problems... It will get better

Picture of parking lotHaving trouble finding a parking space.  Unfortunately, you are not the only one.  The first days of the fall semester at Lone Star College-CyFair have always made parking a headache, but this year, given record enrollments of over 14,000 students, has been especially bad.  Our hope is that by opening an overflow lot in our soccer fields, we can accomodate the students and customers of the library.  So if you are heading to one of our storytime programs or LIFE, you may want to come a bit earlier to find a parking spot or make the longer walk to the building.  On the bright side, historically parking problems get better after the first few weeks of schoool.  Thanks for your understanding.
