Harris County Public Library to debut services at Lone Star College-Creekside

December 21, 2018

The new year will bring new library services to the Lone Star College-Creekside campus in Tomball.

As part of a partnership between LSC, the Harris County Public Library and Precinct 4, the Creekside campus will begin offering services due to patron demand, said Janna Hoglund, branch manager at the Tomball Community Library.

“We are opening library services with early literacy programs. HCPL will host two story times on Mondays, one for toddlers and another for pre-school age children,” she said.

According to the HCPL website, the story times will debut on Monday, Jan. 28.

Library cards will also be issued at the new location on campus.

There are no plans to build new facility on the campus, but the library will be located in the current library and multipurpose room, Hoglund said.

Lone Star College-Tomball also partnered with HCPL to create a community library on its campus.

Additional public library services at LSC-Creekside will include material requests, picking up reserved books and materials, which will be phased-in in the future.

“The services will be supported by the Lone Star College-Tomball Community Library,” Hoglund said.

HCPL reopened three out of four library locations over the summer in north Harris County which were damaged by Hurricane Harvey in 2017.

The Kingwood, Katherine Tyra and Barbara Bush libraries reopened after undergoing repairs.

The Baldwin Boettcher Library will reopen after undergoing renovations to make the building flood-resilient for future high water events.
