Succeed in School with Monday Mentoring!

Have you ever felt like this picture while doing homework? If so, we have good news for you. The Evelyn Meador Library is committed to working with our local community to help students succeed in school. As such, we are happy to announce the beginning of a new program at the library: Monday Mentoring.

Written in the Stars: READ!

Welcome to the beginning of our National Teen Reads Week! This is an annual celebration of our teen literature, and a time where we encourage our teens to read more (as opposed to our normal agenda, which is to discourage reading and hide books. We are a library after all.). However, if you aren’t a teen, don’t let that discourage you from celebrating this week. Everyone can come to the library and do something to participate in this amazing event. Here are some of our suggestions on how to reach for the stars at the library this week:

Join us at the Seabrook Celebration

Next Saturday, on October 6, the city of Seabrook is throwing the Celebration Seabrook at Meador Park. It’s going to be an all day festival, with music, booths, food, and games. This is a fantastic event hosted by the city, and we are excited that we’ll be next door to welcome everyone who needs a break in our air-conditioned and dry library.

Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month

We at the Evelyn Meador Branch Library recognize and love the diversity of our community. It’s a wonderful thing to have people of different cultures and backgrounds associate and trade ideas. We love this aspect for our community and want to do everything we can to foster this. As such, the library is excited to be spending the next month celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. This wonderful celebration will allow us to learn more about Hispanic cultures, and gain a greater appreciation of the great things they have. Here are a few of the things that you can do at the library to gain a better appreciation of Hispanic culture.

Rain, Rain, Go Away! (And I Mean It!)

 You should come to the library this week. Now, I know what you’re thinking. Despite all the rain, it really is worth it to come to the library. Yes, it’s wet and terrible, but it’s been raining for at least two weeks solid. The time for excuses has to end, even if it is hard to admit it.

To help you out, we have a lot of fun activities coming up at the library, which will give you the time to enjoy yourself in a free, indoor environment. That’s right. You get to be inside, you don’t have to pay anything, and our events are a guaranteed blast. Here’s some of them:

Star Wars Festival

With May the 4 long past, and Star Wars Episode IX still a long ways off, I’m sure many of you are feeling a distinct lack of the Force in your life. If that is the case, make sure that you come to the Evelyn Meador Branch Library’s Star Wars Festival on September 8. From 2:00 to 4:00 PM that Saturday, we will have a variety of Star Wars events that will fill that void in your life. Some of these amazing activities are:

What We're Reading

The librarians at the Evelyn Meador Branch Library read A LOT of books! I’m sure that comes as no surprise to you. Today, we decided to share some of what we are reading. This might even help you know who to ask for the next time you need a book recommendation.

Welcome Back to School!

With school starting on Monday, we at the Evelyn Meador Branch Library want to officially welcome back to our students! We have missed a lot of you over the summer (you know who you are) and we are excited to have you coming back to the library after school!

Summer Reading Summary

Now that our Summer Reading Program is officially over, and everyone is coming in to get their prizes (by the way, if you haven’t gotten your prize, come to the Reference Desk before August 18th to get it), we at the Evelyn Meador Library thought it might interest our patrons to find out how our Summer Reading Program went. As such, we decided that we would share some of our statistics for summer reading and show how great our summer went.

Hurricane Watch

Now that our Summer Reading Program is drawing to a close (come and get your prizes if you haven’t already), we at Evelyn Meador Branch Library are moving into a little bit of downtime until school starts. However, we still have a lot to offer the community that you should come in to see. With the anniversary of Hurricane Harvey coming up, and with hurricane season still in full swing, we want to help teach people how to deal with hurricanes. As such, on Tuesday, August 14, at 6:30 PM we have invited NOAA meteorologist Jeffry Evans, to come to the library and discuss some of these issues. With a lot of good information, like hurricane preparedness, a discussion on how much of an anomaly Hurricane Harvey was, and how weather watches work, this lecture is one that you are sure to want to attend.
