African American History Month and Chinese New Year

February is here and with it comes an important reminder. This month is set aside for us to contemplate and reflect on the history and heritage of African Americans and their role in shaping this country. Even though February is the month set aside for us to reflect upon and contemplate both the triumphant and tragic events in the history of African Americans, it should not be the only time we think about this. Here at Evelyn Meador we have two programs that we hope will inspire and motivate our patrons to learn more about the rich heritage and culture of African Americans.

For our younger ones K-6th grade we present:

Coming up, February programming!

One month of 2018 down or close enough. Have you been keeping up with your New Year’s Resolutions (if you made them)? I, for one, give myself a cheat month (January) to decide what I really want to focus on for the year. If you’re like me and want to learn a new skill, or maybe hone one (I have 4 more days to decide), well, Evelyn Meador has you covered. Our new month long sewing program starts February 1st and will occur every Thursday at 1:30, Classes will focus on measuring, developing patterns for and sewing skirts, tops, dresses.

"Brrr" It's Cold Outside...

Wow what a week this has been! For the first time in 22 years the Houston area had a temperature of 19 degrees. That cold weather brought with it icy road conditions and closures all over Texas. But, we keep moving forward, we want our patrons to know that all books due those days will not have late fees applied to them.

Learn something new at Evelyn Meador

Harris County Public Library's mission is to provide information and resources to enrich lives and strengthen communities through innovative services within and beyond our walls. Here at Evelyn Meador we do our best to meet that mission. By offering a wide variety of classes and programming, we enrich our patron’s lives and even challenge customers to learn something new. Our recent journal-making program was a blast; we learned to make Japense stab bound journals. Everyone who participated got to take their own unique and functional piece of art home.

Happy New Year from Evelyn Meador Library

2018 is here and everyone here at Evelyn Meador Library wishes you and yours a very Happy New Year! 2017 brought with it a storm of programming: 700+ activities for all ages, along with over 500 ESL, GED and Citizenship classes, and 2018 is looking even more action packed.
