EV Line Drawing English & Assocs.

The plans for the new Evelyn Meador Branch Library, created by English & Associates of Houston will be unveiled this coming Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. in Seabrook on the site of the old facility. A reception, hosted by the Friends of Evelyn Meador, will follow at the Seabrook Community House at 1210 Anders. Included in the line up of guest speakers is Lynn Meador Edmundson, daughter of Evelyn Meador, who donated the land for the original building which first opened in June of 1988.

Summer Reading Medals!

For the past six or so years the Evelyn Meador Branch has awarded medals to children who read 100 books during the summer reading program. What makes the medals especially special is each is engraved with the name of the child who earned it. Despite a hot summer and the closure of our branch building, we had seven kids who crossed the 100 book mark and I am very proud of them! I will be picking the medals up this week at Seabrook’s own Crown Trophy to distribute to these awesome kids.

Where Will the New Evelyn Meador Branch Be Located?

Ever since the plans for a new Evelyn Meador Branch in Seabrook were announced, people have been asking me if the new building will be in the same location. Good question. The new building will actually be directly across the parking lot from the old building. That is the highest point of ground on the property, and the site will be raised another two feet before construction begins. The current scenario is that the old building will be torn down before work on the new one begins. This will give the contractors much more room to work. The site of the old building will be used as part of the new parking lot. In my next post, I'll highlight some of the great features planned for the new building.
