"Brrr" It's Cold Outside...

Wow what a week this has been! For the first time in 22 years the Houston area had a temperature of 19 degrees. That cold weather brought with it icy road conditions and closures all over Texas. But, we keep moving forward, we want our patrons to know that all books due those days will not have late fees applied to them.

Learn something new at Evelyn Meador

Harris County Public Library's mission is to provide information and resources to enrich lives and strengthen communities through innovative services within and beyond our walls. Here at Evelyn Meador we do our best to meet that mission. By offering a wide variety of classes and programming, we enrich our patron’s lives and even challenge customers to learn something new. Our recent journal-making program was a blast; we learned to make Japense stab bound journals. Everyone who participated got to take their own unique and functional piece of art home.
