The Friends of Evelyn Meador will host their annual Holiday Book Sale on Saturday, December 1st from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Meeting Room of the library.

Even in the days of iPads and smart phones, books, movies and music still make great stocking stuffers!

But who wants to pay big store prices?

Not only that, but in addition to the great prices, there will also be a special raffle for some select item! (tickets available at the door)

And as always, all proceeds benefit the Evelyn Meador Branch Library.

Free Film Screenings with a Modern Day Marco Polo

HCPL hosts filmmaker Francis O’Donnell and free screenings of his Emmy®
Nominated Documentary, In the Footsteps of Marco Polo.

Still Photo from the documentary: In the Footsteps of Marco PoloWhat happens when two ordinary guys—one working as a wedding photographer, the other a former Marine turned artist--decide they need a little adventure in their lives? If they are Denis Belliveau and Francis O’Donnell, a 25,000 mile trek across Eurasia retracing the journey of 13th Century adventurer Marco Polo, and a PBS documentary that earns an Emmy® nomination for Outstanding Arts and Culture Programming.

This month, Harris County Public Library will host one of those intrepid travelers, Francis O’Donnell, for two free screenings of the film In the Footsteps of Marco Polo to be followed by lively discussions of the journey and the making of the film.
During the two-year journey from Venice to China and back, the pair traveled on foot, horseback, camelback, in jeeps, trucks, boats and trains, and survived everything man and Mother Nature threw at them, including the forbidding Taklamakan Desert, Tajik soldiers, bureaucrats, and border guards.
