Gulf Coast Reads (GCR) Events @ Your Library


Gulf Coast Reads (GCR): On the Same Page is an annual regional reading initiative focused on promoting the simultaneous reading or listening to a selected title by those living along the upper Texas Gulf Coast.*

This year's pick, Jan Jarboe Russell's The Train to Crystal City, describes "the dramatic and never-before-told story of a secret FDR approved American internment camp in Texas during World War II, where thousands of families -- many US citizens -- were incarcerated."

Please look at and join us for our GCR events this October: 

Innovation Lab Maker Challenge

The patrons who use the Innovation Lab come up with some incredibly creative designs and projects, and they'll be showing them off this Saturday, October 1st, at 11 a.m. during the JHLIL Maker Challenge Contest. If you've made something in the Lab during the past three months, there's still time to enter -- but not much!  Follow this link to find the rules and requirements, and register by Wednesday, September 28th.
