Top Adult Non-fiction Books at the Katy Library

Ever wonder what your neighbors are reading? Here are some of the top-circulating adult non-fiction books from last month at the Katy Library:

12 Day Body Shaping MiracleThe 12 Day Body Shaping Miracle by Michael Thurmond

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. 

Nominate a Special Tree in Katy

TreeDo you know of a historic tree in Katy that should be celebrated for its importance?  Nominate it to be one of the 2012 Legacy Trees.  The Keep Katy Beautiful group is gathering suggestions and will be announcing the 2012 selections at the City Council meeting on June 11.  For more information, check out the City of Katy website.

Paper Twitter

The Ten, Make That Nine...What first drew me to Steve Martin's latest book is the stark plainness of the cover.  Then, it was the rambling, proofreading-challenged title.  Then, it was the fact that something so "virtual" as Twitter was being published on paper, of all things.  I didn't even have to read a word, and I knew: I LOVE IT!  Only Steve Martin could get away with all that.  Check it out: The Ten, Make That Nine, Habits of Very Organized People.
