It is next to a Harris County Court House Annex on the south side of Clay….can’t miss it.

Directions to Event

The address is 16719 Clay Road, Houston, TX

The library is pretty easy to find:

From Interstate 10 go north on Hwy 6 about four miles. Clay Road will be the third stop light once you cross over the Addicks Dam. Turn left on Clay and go about a half-mile. You will go through two stop lights then look for a Harris County Courthouse Annex on your left. The Library is next to it.

From Hwy 290 go south on Hwy 6 about 12 miles. The light before Clay Road is Cairnway. Turn right on Clay Road and go about a half-mile. You will go through two stop lights then look for a Harris County Courthouse Annex on your left. The Library is next to it.

What to Bring
