Summer Reading starts today at the Wells Branch Community Library!

It’s time for another Summer Reading Challenge at the Wells Branch Community Library! Throughout June and July, log your reading progress on the library’s ReadSquared page to compete with friends and neighbors, unlock fun games and challenges, and earn chances to win raffles for fantastic prizes. Any and all reading counts: reading the newspaper, listening to an audiobook on your morning drive, reading aloud to kids, and more can all be counted toward your summer reading progress.

In addition to our online reading challenge, summer means a lot of free and fun library events! Join us each week for new kids’ programs, including:

  • LEGO Lab: Mondays from 4 to 5 p.m. (ages 5-12)
    Build and program a LEGO robot or get creative with LEGO free-play! To sign up for LEGO robotics, visit the kids’ desk beginning at 3:30.
  • Circle Time: Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. (ages 0-3)
    Learn about the alphabet, days of the week, weather, and more through song in this first classroom experience.
  • Block Parties: Thursdays from 2 to 4 p.m. (ages 3+)
    Build with Keva planks, cardboard bricks, and blocks of all sizes.
  • Little Helpers: Fridays at 2 p.m. (ages 4-8)
    Meet community helpers, like firefighters and police officers, and learn how to become a helper yourself!

Grown-ups can have fun, too, with programs like DIY Wednesdays each week throughout June and July. For more information about all of the library’s summer programs, visit the library’s website.

Finally, the library’s still your place to find your favorite books, magazines, and movies! Stop by any day of the week to browse and borrow, or use our digital collections for 24/7 access to library materials.

Don’t have a library card? Visit the library to sign up! All Texas residents 18 and older are eligible for a free library card, with valid ID and proof of current physical address. (Minors ages 5-17 can sign up with a parent or guardian.) The library is located at 15001 Wells Port Drive.

Got a question? Call the library at 512-989-3188, email, or stop by the library during open hours.
