The Montgomery County Memorial Library System has seven branches where community members like you can take full advantage of free services, events, entertainment, and educational opportunities. Have you visited any of these branches yet?
Near The Woodlands, you’ll find the Mitchell Library and South Library. Both branches serve residents of Montgomery County but are open to the public as well. Stop in to use the computer resource center or bring your own laptop and connect to the wi-fi network if you work from home and need a change of scenery. Study rooms are available for special projects and small groups, and meeting rooms can be reserved for larger groups or presentations.
Parents of young children who are looking to get out and meet others can do so at the Mitchell Branch during the Monday toddler playdates held weekly from 10am to 12pm. Bring a friend or make new ones and then grab lunch afterward before nap time! Family storytime is another opportunity to meet others while spending quality educational time with your little one. These storytimes are held most Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10am, 10:30am and 11am. The South Branch holds Mommy & Baby, Toddler, and Preschool storytime Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.
Both branches offer Book Clubs for teens and adults with different themes and genres so you can find the perfect group to suit your preferences. Family game nights, LEGO building parties, and movie showings are perfect for getting out of the house and doing something fun together. Writers workshops are held at the Mitchell Branch for those who are working on projects ranging from novels to magazine articles to op-ed pieces. Crafting clubs and needlepoint and knitting groups also meet at the Mitchell Branch.
Libraries also hold special education classes for kids and adults in areas like computer skills, meditation, yoga, college preparation, tax return resources, STEAM challenges for students, public speaking, and many, many more.
You can access all of these events for free simply by showing up at the library. If you wish to borrow books or other library materials, you will need a library card. Cards are issued at all branches and you will need a photo ID (Texas driver’s license) or proof of residency (if your ID is not a Texas driver’s license).
