Did you want to try your hand at something new and crafty?  You might be interested in our DIY craft series.  January 8 at 2 PM we will be making 3D snowflakes.

Did you want to track your ancestors and find out more about your past?  Bear Creek Genealogy Society will be here on January 18 at 2 PM to show you how it's done.

We're Back 'Up'!

In case you couldn't get ahold of us online this morning, our servers were 'down' all over the County library system. But we're back up now and we'll be open until 5 pm. C'mon in and do what you need to do at the library this afternoon.

Two New Tech Topics This Month

Tech ManStarting tomorrow, the Katy Library has two new tech topics to teach you: Facebook & OneClickDigital.  On July 6th & 20th at 1:30PM, you can get the latest scoop on how to use Facebook's new "timeline" format.  Then, on July 7th & 21st at 2:00PM learn about the library's new e-audio books (called OneClickDigital) that never have a waiting list and can be renewed over and over.  Two new tech topics to tempt you!

Windows 7 Laptops for Checkout

Did you know that Katy Library has Windows 7 laptops for checkout? Want to check Facebook while sitting in one of our comfy sofa chairs? Maybe you’d like to surf the web while sitting near your child as he or she plays games on the children’s computers. Get a laptop for a lending period up to two hours and take it anywhere inside the main area of the library.
To check out a laptop, simply visit the front desk, or the information desk, and sign our laptop policy form. At the time of checkout, you must present your Harris County Public Library card. Also, your account must be open for at least 30 days, and your status must be in good standing. Children may check out laptops as long as they are 13 or older.
 

New Computers and Faster Internet at Katy

Fast Internet LinesKaty library has all brand new computers, adding more than 30 PCs and 5 laptops to our existing fleet. We also have new high speed T1 lines which means faster computers and reliable wireless connections. Of course, this fantastic update is not without its wrinkles. However, if you need any help at all please don’t hesitate to ask me, John, the new technology trainer and I will gladly assist you. Please check our online calendar for upcoming computer classes beginning in May.

COMPUTER SKILLS ACQUIRED AT LIBRARY

As a Maud Marks patron I am happy to say that my computer skills have improved as I navigate through the databases.  I have been able to make requests from Harris County libraries as well as InterLibrary Loan.  I have been able to read many more of the Spanish language books I am interested in through this service.
