Summer Reading Summary

Now that our Summer Reading Program is officially over, and everyone is coming in to get their prizes (by the way, if you haven’t gotten your prize, come to the Reference Desk before August 18th to get it), we at the Evelyn Meador Library thought it might interest our patrons to find out how our Summer Reading Program went. As such, we decided that we would share some of our statistics for summer reading and show how great our summer went.

Hurricane Watch

Now that our Summer Reading Program is drawing to a close (come and get your prizes if you haven’t already), we at Evelyn Meador Branch Library are moving into a little bit of downtime until school starts. However, we still have a lot to offer the community that you should come in to see. With the anniversary of Hurricane Harvey coming up, and with hurricane season still in full swing, we want to help teach people how to deal with hurricanes. As such, on Tuesday, August 14, at 6:30 PM we have invited NOAA meteorologist Jeffry Evans, to come to the library and discuss some of these issues. With a lot of good information, like hurricane preparedness, a discussion on how much of an anomaly Hurricane Harvey was, and how weather watches work, this lecture is one that you are sure to want to attend.

Newly installed Little Library

Special guest author Betty Heverly writes:

You may have noticed the beautiful miniature library nestled between the flagpoles at Evelyn Meador Library. Sigourney Lee, Seabrook resident and proud Girl Scout, recently completed this project for her Girl Scout Silver Award.

The motto of the Little Free Library Program is “Take a Book. Share a Book”. Little Free Library is a nonprofit organization that inspires a love of reading, builds community, and sparks creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world. Don’t have time to stop at the library? Grab a book and leave one of your own. Spread the joy!

Congratulations, Sigourney! We look forward to sharing your wonderful project with the community.

It's "cool" at Evelyn Meador Library

 

Monday July 23rd maybe the hottest day of the summer for people here in Houston. Temperatures and heat indexes are expected to be in the triple digits the rest of this week. These dangerous Temperatures have led Harris County to designate the libraries in their system as cooling centers. So if you are sitting at home and sweating your butt off, come on down to the library to relax and cool down.
