Sulphur Springs Public Library is proud to collaborate with Smart Horizons Online School to offer adults an opportunity to earn their high school diploma and a career certificate.
Smart Horizons Online High School’s mission is to re-engage people in the educational system as a pathway to career advancement, education, and training by offering access to accredited, online education that inspires and creates better opportunities and brighter futures.
We are so proud of Harleah Petrea, and her dedication, commitment, and vision of her future assured her success in the high school program.

Family Game Night is a fantastic time to get together as a family or neighbors and play board games. We have a large variety of games, some are classics, and some are new award-winning games you will want to learn! All ages will have a blast on these evenings!
We dedicate Wildlife on the Move to helping people of all ages become more knowledgeable about their natural world and helping kids develop a genuine appreciation for nature. It’s an excellent presentation on snakes, reptiles, insects, and other critters.
Will Parker Music is a past favorite of ours. Will Parker is a children’s songwriter and teaching artist who writes and performs music for “kids ages 1-100.” During Will’s whimsical and interactive shows, he plays guitar and harmonica and sings original songs that engage the audience in singing-along, dancing, high-fiving, and imaginative play. He also employs the kids in conversation about how every person can be creative and that writing a song is something they can do too.
Chemistry Road Show features Jim Pennington, a traveling Texas A&M University professor who uses things like foam gushing out of a tube and exploding objects in liquid nitrogen to show students that science can be fun and exciting. Using sensory impact, we hope students will learn that:
- chemistry, unlike magic, is comprehensible
- they already comprehend some of it
- chemistry is a human activity, one that real people love and find exciting
- chemistry and chemicals, like any other kind of knowledge and technology, are safe and beneficial when used carefully and intelligently
