Biographies in Bite Size

The Week @ the Katy Library – May 24th Edition

We have a great new opportunity starting at the library this week for learning how to use the computer.  Every Friday at 1:30pm, we’ll have a basic computer class taught in English covering beginner computer topics as well as how to use programs such as Microsoft Word or Excel.  Then, at 4:30pm on Fridays is our computer class taught in Spanish covering the same topics.

For something else to get your hands busy, visit our Mommies Knitting Group which has its last meeting of the Spring this Thursday at 2:00pm.  The group will take a break for the summer and pick back up in the fall.

Keeping up Appearances in a Down Economy

Crafty MamaWith the economy the way it is, how do you keep up with the coolest, latest trends?  If you’re a baby or toddler, you get your mom to check out the book Crafty Mama Makes 49 Fast, Fabulous, Foolproof (Baby & Toddler) Projects by Abby Pecoriello.  With very little craft experience, you can make things like the No-Sew Swanky Blanky, the Better Bolder Wipey Holder, or my favorite: the Spongebob Squarehat.
