Central Library Events January 2018

CONROE, TEXAS - JANUARY 2018:  The following events are planned for adults, children, young adults, and their families in November 2017 at Central Library, 104 I-45 North, Conroe, Texas. 

All events take place at the Central Library

Featured Events 

The upstairs and the downstairs large meeting room will continue to be affected by the new carpet installation throughout the month of January. As a result, there are no featured events in January.

While the book stacks are being lifted to accommodate the new carpet, the public will not have access to those portions of the collection. The front desk will include a full-service reference station, with library staff offering extra assistance during the transition.

Patrons are encouraged to take advantage of the many benefits that MCMLS offers in order to mitigate any potential disruptions resulting from the carpeting project. Customers may choose to place holds on wanted items before their arrival, to ensure that there will be no difficulty accessing the materials when they need them. Holds are kept for customers for one full week at the check-out desk, giving patrons plenty of time to come get the materials when it is convenient.
