How Music Works

How Music WorksFor those of us who like to take things apart and see how they work, there’s a new book: How Music Works by John Powell.  A little science, a little psychology… now I know why a piece of music with no lyrics can actually make you cry. 

 

Book Donations in Katy

BookThe Katy Library would like to thank all the generous people who bring donations of books, DVDs, and more into the branch each week.  As you may know, our Friends of the Katy Library sells most of these donations in their annual sale to raise money for all of our library programs.  Without these funds, we couldn't have crafts, teen activities, summer performers, book bags, food for programs, and so much more.  We also sometimes add donations to the library's collection to replace worn and damaged copies.  If you're interested in either donating or participating with the Friends, drop in the library for more information.
