I cannot imagine my life without the library.  Mom always tooks us when we were children.  I naturally took my own children.  Now I work at the library.  What a nice place to work. But, really, it's all about the books.  It's about the joy of reading.  It's about the people you meet and the places you go in a book.  There is always one more book to read.  The best part is, IT'S FREE. I found a great site for those of you who love the library as much as I do, ilovemylibrary.org. They have a wonderful page where you can calculate the value of your library experience.

Dog Days of Summer

Railroad History

Do you know this history of the MKT?  The railroad has always been a huge part of the history of the Katy area.  In honor of our summer reading club theme, we have a real treat for all. We will end our adult summer reading club programs with a visit from the Katy Heritage Society. They will be here this Tuesday night at 7 PM to discuss the history and impact of the Missouri-Kansas-Texas railroad on the area. Come learn all about our prairie’s early history.
