The Week @ the Katy Library – November 30th Edition


Ok, we waited as long as we could. We didn’t put them up before Halloween. We almost didn’t put them up before Thanksgiving. But, now they’re here – the Christmas decorations are UP! And just in time for our holiday events.

First, we have the Friends of the Katy Library hosting the annual Poupourri Boutique on Thursday, December 3rd. Come by to shop for homemade Christmas gifts and buy a homemade lunch for $6.

Then, we have the Holiday Kickoff Party on Saturday, December 5th. We’ll have craft stations throughout the library all day as well as puzzles, gift ideas, and more. Then, from 1:00-3:00pm come see Santa, read to dogs, and enjoy some Carol-oke.
