Houston Citizenship Month at Evelyn Meador!

Last Thursday, as a special treat for Houston Citizenship Month, Evelyn Meador hosted Community Relations Officer Rosa Ramirez, and Officer Peter Cheng from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Office. They spoke about the Citizenship process, conducted a mock interview, and answered many pressing questions about the citizenship process. We thank them for  coming out, and being a part of our ongoing citizenship programming.

Also in honor of Houston Citizenship Month, our information desk has been further beautified by not only real butterflies-to-be, but also a butterfly book display, and crafty paper butterflies. Stop by and make one to keep, or add to the display!

Butterflies at Evelyn Meador!

In celebration of Houston Citizenship Month, libraries across the county, Evelyn Meador included, will be hosting butterflies! Well, they're caterpillars right right now, but they are turning into chrysalides, and after seven to ten days, they'll emerge as beautiful painted lady butterflies! They are at the information desk transforming before our eyes, so stop by and check them out!

In the Gallery - Fine Art of Beth Reed


If you appreciate fine art, you won't want to miss this Retrospective of Beth Reed's paintings. Created over a forty year period, the exhibit includes oils, watercolors, and mixed media.

Ms. Reed  got her start as an artist in a high school class in California. She continued on and majored in Art at the University of California at Irvine and also received a degree from UC Berkeley in Architecture. She went on to take classes at the Academy of Art College in the 80's and in the 90's she took classes in oils. In 2007 Beth started taking classes at the Baytown Art League.

This exhibit will be on display through September. Tours are available on request.

There will also be an informal reception at the library on Monday, August 17th at 6:00 pm.
