Book Donations in Katy

BookThe Katy Library would like to thank all the generous people who bring donations of books, DVDs, and more into the branch each week.  As you may know, our Friends of the Katy Library sells most of these donations in their annual sale to raise money for all of our library programs.  Without these funds, we couldn't have crafts, teen activities, summer performers, book bags, food for programs, and so much more.  We also sometimes add donations to the library's collection to replace worn and damaged copies.  If you're interested in either donating or participating with the Friends, drop in the library for more information. 


The Katy Branch Library will celebrate Asian Pacific Heritage month with an afternoon of crafts on Saturday, May 12 from 1:00 to 3:00.  Stop by the library and try your skills with a tangram and origami, or make a dragon puppet or a colorful lei.
