Asian Pacific Heritage Month Celebrations

May is Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month here at Harris County Public Libraries. A celebration of Asian and Pacific Islanders in the United States. A rather broad term, Asian/Pacific encompasses all of the Asian continent and the Pacific islands of Melanesia (New Guinea, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Fiji and the Solomon Islands), Micronesia (Marianas, Guam, Wake Island, Palau, Marshall Islands, Kiribati, Nauru and the Federated States of Micronesia) and Polynesia (New Zealand, Hawaiian Islands, Rotuma, Midway Islands, Samoa, American Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu, Cook Islands, French Polynesia and Easter Island).

Here in Seabrook the month of May gives us a chance to appreciate, honor and celebrate the cultures and heritages of our fellow citizens from those areas. To help celebrate we have planned several events here at Evelyn Meador.

Friends Annual Meeting Update/ and coming up El día de los niños/El día de los libros

Last night, April 24, 2018, was a huge night for Evelyn Meador Library. First we had a ribbon-cutting to celebrate our new membership into the Clear Lake Chamber of Commerce. Then, the Friends of Evelyn Meador Library Annual Meeting with special guests from the Seabrook City Council. In total we had 134 residents and other concerned citizens join us to hear about the HWY 146 Expansion and other City Projects from Mayor Thom Kolupski and City Manager Gayle Cook.

Hibernation season is over!

Hibernation season is over and there is a ton to do in Seabrook. Here at Evelyn Meador Library we have something for EVERYONE!

A Huge Thank You and Big News!

Wow! We had a spectacular turn out for the Annual Evelyn Meador Beautification Project hosted by our wonderful Friends of Evelyn Meador Library group. A total of 31 volunteers from the community participated, including students from Seabrook Intermediate School, Clear Falls High School, Clear Horizons Early College High School, and Girl Scout Troop 140125. We would like to thank Arlans, Donald Donuts, Kroger, Maas Nursery and the City Of Seabrook for their generous support of the event. Our Library looks amazing! Check out the video here.

But that’s not all, there’s more big news to share.

We are now members of the Clear Lake Chamber of Commerce and we are celebrating with a ribbon cutting on April 24th at 5:30 pm. 

Evelyn Meador Library Beautification Project

I have been blessed to have the opportunity to work at such a beautiful library. The Evelyn Meador library in Seabrook, TX is one of the more attractive libraries I have ever been inside. But, it wasn’t always this charming. Before Hurricane Ike, the Evelyn Meador Library was the epitome of what most libraries in our country represented: It was four walls surrounding stacks of books without any windows to let in natural light. Hurricane Ike damaged that old fashioned building, and this community was without a physical library for nearly three years.
