African American History Month - Poetry Celebration

Poetry courtesy of Clker.comStarting on Monday, we're featuring African American poets all month.  Become a poet yourself by penning a few lines for others to read or put together our poetry puzzles from celebrated authors.  

Learn English at the Library

Conversation courtesy of Clker.comWe've added English conversation classes at the Katy Library for intermediate and advanced English speakers.  Our ESL Book Club (intermediate) meets once a  month to discuss a book.  The next meeting is Wednesday, 2/17, at 3:30pm.  The Advanced ESL conversation class meets every Monday at 5:30pm.

For either class, stop by and fill out an application and placement test so we can get you started.  For beginning English students, watch in late 2016 and early 2017 for our Basic ESL classes.
