A Fresh Coat of Paint for the Library

Pardon our mess! Our library is getting a much-needed new coat of paint.  While the painting is in progress, please be aware that there will be strong fumes in the air.  Anyone who may be sensitive or allergic to the fumes may wish to try one of the other nearby libraries such as Cy-Fair, Katy, or Maud Marks until our paint job is complete.

You may also encounter difficulties looking for some items as shelves are removed to allow the painters to access all of our walls.  Please ask our staff and we will try to help you find what you are looking for.  We’re hoping that all of the painting is finished quickly and that things will go back to normal with new, improved paint.
