Computer Boot Camp Coming in January!

Computer Boot CampDo you need some help getting started using a computer? Or perhaps you need to hone your computer skills? Beginning in January the Katy Library will be hosting a nine part Computer Boot Camp for new computer users. We will go over skills such as using the mouse and keyboard, organizing files and folders, copying & pasting, surfing the web and much more!

Give a Little, Help a Lot!

This season we have two opportunities to help others less fortunate.  We are now accepting donations for the Share Your Holidays Food Drive and the Toys for Tots program.   There is a big box set up by the Children's Reference desk.  Just bring your nonperishable food donations or unwrapped new toy donations.  Drop them in the box and we will see that they get to a family or child in need. 

Citizenship Class Series

 

Did you know that we will be offering a U.S. Citizenship Class here at Maud Marks?  The class will be held every Monday starting September 15th through October 27th at 6 pm.  Topics for the class will include preparing for the citizenship interview, tips for demonstrating English ability during the interview, and general knowledge of U.S. government and history.  We also have practice test books that you can check out here at the library.  Look for them in our Popular Section behind the Reference Desk at call number 323.623 AleRegistration is required so be sure to call the library at 281-492-8592 to reserve your spot.
