Reception for Myrtle Ross

If you attended a storytime at the Katy Library between 1970 and 2006, you met a wonderful lady named Myrtle Ross.  Tomorrow, November 17th, at 11:00am we're dedicating the children's area of the library to her with a garden reception.  Come by and tell her your storytime memories.  Better yet, come hear one more story read by Miss Myrtle at the 10:30am Tuesday storytime.

101 Things to Do Before You DietLove the skin you’re in. Beauty is more than skin deep. These truths I hold to be self-evident!

Liar, Liar Pants on Fire

The Definitive Book of Body LanguageHave you seen the TV show Lie to Me?  It’s sort of a crime drama where the mysteries are solved by observing people’s body language to see if they’re telling a lie.  If you’re hooked on the show like I am, you’ll love the book The Definitive Book of Body Language by Allan & Barbara Pease.

Eating Out is Hard to Do

What to Eat When You're Eating OutFor the waistline-conscious person, eating out is definitely hard to do.  Hidden calories and fat molecules are in the least likely places.  I usually assume that if it tastes good, there’s danger there.  But, now I have a tool I can use to shed light on the subject: What to Eat When You’re Eating Out by Hope S. Warshaw. Her information covers more than 60 popular restaurants giving you the best options for each and then the nitty gritty on the rest.

Chicken Soup for Hard Times
