Read an eBook Week

eBook WeekNext week, March 4 -10, is Read an eBook Week! The popularity of eReader devices like the Kindle and Nook, and tablet computers like the iPad and Galaxy is explosive. The percentage of people who own one of these devices has more than doubled since last November. To celebrate, we will host a library eBook demonstration next Thursday, March 8 from 2:15 to 3:45. Due to the great diversity among these devices, the aim of this workshop is to demonstrate the download process. One-on-one, hands-on trainings can be scheduled for another time.

Free Tax Help

The AARP FoundationTax-Aides are back to help you with your taxes.  They offer free assistance to taxpayers with low and moderate income with special focus on those 60 and older.  They're here at the Katy Branch every Tuesday through April 17 and work with people on a first come - first served basis between 12:30pm and 4:30pm.  Signups begin after 10:00am each Tuesday and participants should expect to wait an extended period of time for their names to be called.
