Well, according to this chart, staff at the Houston Public Library are “Cheapy McCheapfaces,” but then we are on a tight budget and tomorrow night will be our third Halloween event in five days! If you and your kids are out on the 31st trick-or-treating, makes sure to stop in for the candy most appropriate for libraries to hand out: Smarties! We’ll be open until 8 pm! And remember: the Houston Lions Club will be over at the Community Center handing out treats as well from 5 to 7 pm.
The Houston Public Library will be closed on Monday, October 9th in observance of the federal holiday celebrating Columbus Day and/or Indigenous Peoples’ Day. Have a safe and happy holiday. We’ll see you on Tuesday!

Last week, the library got a beautiful new map of Houston and the surrounding area installed on the west side of our building, thanks to a S.H.I.P (Statewide Health Improvement Program) grant and our hardworking city maintenance team. The map was created by local business, Wild Exhibit. Stop by and check it out!
On Saturday, September 23rd during Houston’s annual Taste of the Trail celebration, the Houston Public Library will be taking our regular Saturday Morning Storytime over to Trailhead Park as we host a StoryWalk featuring Nancy Carlson’s book, “Get Up and Go!.” Meet us at the bandshell at 10 am. We’ll then walk along the bike trail reading a book as we go. Questions? Call the library at 896-READ.
