Lone Star College-Creekside Center to add public library services in January

Lone Star College-Creekside Center will begin offering public library services in January.

Lone Star College-Creekside Center will begin offering public library services in January.

Lone Star College-Creekside Center will introduce public library services in January through a partnership with LSC-Tomball, Harris County Precinct 4 and the Harris County Public Library system, said Janna Hoglund, director of the LSC-Tomball Community Library. The Tomball library acts as a parent library to the Creekside Center, she said.

"The Creekside community needs this," Hoglund said. "This is community-driven."

Programs will initially focus on early literacy with more library services added over time, she said. The Creekside Center will offer a small collection of children’s books and storytimes each Monday for toddlers and preschool-age children, respectively, at 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Storytimes begin Jan. 28.

The center will also issue HCPL cards, and patrons can request materials from other HCPL locations for pickup in Creekside.

"This would also be a delivery location like any other library in the Harris County Public Library system. You can come; if you don't find a book, you can request it, and it will be delivered there," Hoglund said. "With that location, since it doesn't have any public library collection yet, this will be a huge benefit."

LSC-Creekside Center hosts a holiday event Dec. 5 as part of the formal announcement about the expanded library services, Hoglund said.

The event runs from 6:30-8 p.m. and includes family and children's activities as well as family photos with Santa Claus. Refreshments will be served. Admission is free. LSC-Creekside Center is located at 8747 W. New Harmony Trail, Tomball.
