Genealogy Never Looked So Cool

Who Do You Think You Are?I admit it: I’m addicted to genealogy.  So, there was no way I was going to miss the new TV show Who Do You Think You Are?  No way!  It’s a polished, moving series of episodes featuring stars such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Spike Lee, Brooke Shields, and others discovering their heritage.  Along the way you get an inside view of American history (as well as other countries) putting faces to the stories.  If you’re new to researching your family, check out the new companion book to the series by Megan Smolenyak, the chief family his

Keep Learning

The Intellectual DevotionalI’m a strong believer in continuing education.  What’s nice about being out of school is that you can choose what you read and how you enrich your life.  YOU decide what you learn.  There’s a great series of books called The Intellectual Devotional by David S. Kidder and Noah D. Oppenheim.  In the first book you get 365 different mini-lessons in things like history, literature, arts, science, music, philosophy, and religion.  The other two books cover American history and health.  Like the cover says, “Revive Your Mind, Complete Your Education, and Roam Confidently with the Cultured Class.”

A Patriotic Vacation

Complete National Parks of the United StatesFor the past year I’ve heard that people have been vacationing closer to home to save money.  Thankfully, we have a big, beautiful country full of places to visit.  Take a look at National Geographic’s latest edition of Complete National Parks of the United States.  Even if you’re not planning a vacation, it’s worth browsing.

Spring Break is upon us, and we’re celebrating at the Katy Branch Library with our 2nd Annual Dog Day on Saturday, 3/20 from 12-4pm.  We’ll have an exhibition hall with local dog-related vendors and organizations, rescued dogs available for adoption, dog crafts, and reading to dogs for the kids.  Don’t miss it!

 

Shhh, It’s a Secret
