2015 Lunar Rendezvous Festival Contribution

The Friends of Freeman Library were the recipients of a generous gift due to funds raised by the Lunar Rendezvous Festival for 2015.  The Festival organizers provided the Friends $2,000, which will go towards Freeman Library's classic literature collection and will be a significant help to students who often need copies of such works for school reading assignments.  

The Lunar Rendezvous Festival (LRF) celebrated its 50th year in 2015.  LRF, according to its website, "is dedicated to providing community support, including scholarships for higher education, youth development and educational programs, funding for the arts and historical preservation in the Bay Area Houston/NASA area."  Freeman Library and the Friends of Freeman Library thank those involved with the Lunar Rendezvous Festival for their support of the Clear Lake community!

Galveston Bay Area Scale Modelers

We are pleased to announce that the Galveston Bay Area Scale Modelers Association (GBASMA) will now be meeting regularly at Freeman as a library program!  GBASMA will meet the fourth Monday of each month beginning at 6:30 PM in the Children's Activity Space (except for December).  This outstanding group of makers constructed the International Space Station model permanently on display in the rotunda and have plans to detail a Delta IV model expected also to be on display in the rotunda very soon.  

GBASMA is a chartered member of the International Plastic Modelers Society (IPMS).  Monthly meetings offer participants the opportunity to present each others' current projects, share new modeling techniques, answer modeling questions, and promote the hobby.  We hope to see you there!
