PAWS @ THE LIBRARY, READ TO A DOG

The Reading Education Assistance dogs will be at the Katy Branch Library on Saturday, March 20 from noon to 2:00 pm.  Children are invited to sign up to read their favorite animal story to one of these specially trained dogs.  These dogs along with their handlers provide an irresistible, fun environment for children to practice their reading skills.  This program has been used throughout the country and has been proven to encourage sturggling readers.  Call the library or stop by the Reference desk to sign up.

BILINGUAL STORYTIME

     Every Monday at 2:00, the Katy Branch Library holds bilingual storytime.  Songs and stories are presented in English and Spanish along with a weekly craft.  This storytime is designed for children 3 to 6 years old, but all children are welcome.  Join us for stories about rain on Monday, March 1.

AND THE WINNER IS:

Texas Children have voted, and the 2010 Bluebonnet Award winner is Help Me, Mr. Mutt! by Janet Stevens and Susan Stevens Crummel.  If your students would like to get a head start reading the 2010-2011 Texas Bluebonnet books, the Katy Branch Library has them on our award shelf.  Stop by and check out next year's selection.

HUGS AND HEARTS

 Valentine's Day is coming soon.  Join us for storytimes as we celebrate the "hugs and hearts" season.  Toddlertime is held on Tuesdays at 10:30 am for children from 18 months to 3 years old.  Preschool storytime is held on Thursdays at 10:30 am for children from 3 to 6 years.

MOMMY KNITTING GROUP

Don't have a babysitter, but you enjoy knitting and crocheting?  Or, would you like to learn how?  The Katy Branch Library has the group for you!  Every Thursday afternoon at 2:00 meet for an hour of knitting, crocheting, and chatting.  Children are welcome!

HATS! HATS! HATS!

  Wear your favorite hat to storytime this week as we read stories about the different hats people wear.  See you on Tuesday at 10:30 for Toddlertime or Thursday at 10:30 for Preschool storytime.

BE THE STAR OF YOUR OWN MOVIE!

Participate in the 2010 National StoryTubes contest by creating a movie telling about a favorite book.  The contest is open for kids in grades K-12.  Movies will be posted and judged online.  Harris county Library is one of the partner libraries for the contest, so you may find information at the Katy Branch Library or the StoryTubes website.

Santa Pictures

Santa was here, and we took some awesome pictures of Santa visiting with our young library customers.  These pictures are now available on flickr.  Check them out and see how much fun we had!  We will have Baby Bounce, Bilingual Storytime, and Toddlertime next week as usual. 

SANTA WAS HERE!

Santa visited the Katy Branch Library Saturday, December 5, and children were eager to talk to him.  Join us for Christmas Storytimes the month of December.
