The reception honoring Myrtle Ross was a success!

We had a great turnout for the reception held on November 17 for Myrtle Ross, who worked for Harris County Public Library for 36 years and also was the children's librarian and Assistant Branch Librarian here at the Katy Branch Library since 1976.   The children's section is now officially named in Myrtle's  honor - stop by and admire the portrait of her hanging there! 

As you can see from the picture, the press covered the reception.  KPRC aired this video of the event.

The Week @ the Katy Library – December 7th Edition

Among our regular programs this week, we have our monthly Superación Personal for those of you who speak Spanish. Each month this group takes a topic and discusses all the aspects. This month’s topic is “Dare to Be Happy.” Come see what it’s all about on Wednesday, 12/09, at 6:00pm.



Visit Santa at the Katy Branch Library on Saturday, December 5 from 1:00 to 2:00 at our holiday celebration.  Then stop by to greet the Reading Education Assistance Dogs.  No need to register to see Santa, but please register to read to one of the dogs by stopping by the Reference desk or calling 281-391-3509.  See you there!

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.
