The Library is Fun for the Whole Family!

I’m sure you parents out there are thinking about what to do now that your kids are home ALL DAY during the summer! The school year has gotten you used to having a little peace and quiet during the day and now you’ve lost that without a good, legal way of getting it back. Fortunately, the Evelyn Meador Branch Library is here to help, with fun and activities for all ages.

It's-a me, Mario!, I'm-a Luigi, number one!

What an amazing first week we have had so far for the Summer Reading Program. Did you get a chance to come in and meet Orbit? Did you get a chance to play giant games with Greg our Young Adult Specialist? Did you build a box fort? How about the coasters, did you make me one? Really, if you’re not following us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter you’re missing out!


But, then again you are reading my blog so there is that. Are you still paying attention?!?

Here is a list of the upcoming events for June and the rest of the summer.

Asian Pacific Heritage Month Celebrations

May is Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month here at Harris County Public Libraries. A celebration of Asian and Pacific Islanders in the United States. A rather broad term, Asian/Pacific encompasses all of the Asian continent and the Pacific islands of Melanesia (New Guinea, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Fiji and the Solomon Islands), Micronesia (Marianas, Guam, Wake Island, Palau, Marshall Islands, Kiribati, Nauru and the Federated States of Micronesia) and Polynesia (New Zealand, Hawaiian Islands, Rotuma, Midway Islands, Samoa, American Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu, Cook Islands, French Polynesia and Easter Island).

Here in Seabrook the month of May gives us a chance to appreciate, honor and celebrate the cultures and heritages of our fellow citizens from those areas. To help celebrate we have planned several events here at Evelyn Meador.

Friends Annual Meeting Update/ and coming up El día de los niños/El día de los libros

Last night, April 24, 2018, was a huge night for Evelyn Meador Library. First we had a ribbon-cutting to celebrate our new membership into the Clear Lake Chamber of Commerce.
