The Week @ the Katy Library – September 14th Edition

This week we’re starting our Teen Chill Zone! – a place for teens to hang out after school at 3:30pm on Mondays & Wednesdays. We’ll have snacks, laptops, games, and more.

On Wednesday at 6:00pm is our monthly Mosaico Cultural – a program completely in Spanish. This month’s topic is “Como salir de deudas gratis. Como preparar un testamento. Como planear su futuro.”

If you took the Practice SAT at the library on 9/12, come back in at 1:00pm this Saturday, 9/19, to get your results and to learn strategies for doing better next time.

As always, we have programs every week for every age. Come in & see!

We the People "Picturing America"

Check out our book display, We the People “Picturing America”, where you will find books from kindergarten age to adult, as well as Spanish titles, depicting our nation’s heritage. Sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities in cooperation with the American Library Association.

Regular Hours Resume September 8

During the heat emergency this summer, branches opened at 10 AM Monday-Friday. Regular hours resume for all branch locations on Tuesday, September 8.  Regular hours are listed on each branch page as well as the main locations page.

2 X 2's

Has your child's teacher requested that your child read a 2 X 2 book?  If so, the Katy Branch Library has them.  If not, you might want to check them out.  The 2 X 2 reading list is a project of the Texas Library Association.  Books on this list are recommended for children age 2 to grade 2, and there are some great books on the list this year. One of my favorites is The Doghouse by Jan Thomas. The book with bright colorful pictures and a cute storyline is irresistible.  I don't want to give the story away, so stop by and read it for yourself.  Pick up some other 2 X 2's while you're here.  

The Week @ the Katy Library – September 7th Edition

Don’t forget: the library is closed on Monday, 9/07, for Labor Day. BUT, we’re back in full swing the rest of the week with storytimes, internet tutoring, knitting, and more. And speaking of more….

We have some special events this week. Wednesday at 6pm is our monthly Superación Personal, a discussion group in Spanish. Thursday at 3pm, we have Harris County giving a Hurricane Preparedness Program. For teens we have an SAT practice test on Saturday at 10:15am (please register ahead).

Come join the fun!
