PRESCHOOL STORYTIME

Our Preschool Story Time has grown too big! In order to accommodate the many parents and children who would like to attend our story hours we will begin offering two sessions on Thursdays.

The first session will begin at our normal time of 10:30 and run until 11:10. The second session will begin at 11:20 and run until 12:00.

If you come to our 10:30 story hour and we are already full, you may need to wait until our second session. Don’t worry, we will save lots of songs and stories for you!

1001 BOOKS BEFORE KINDERGARTEN

A 1001 books before kindergarten?   It sounds like a lot of books, but if you read just 3 books a day, you’ll be done in almost a year. Easy!  This early literacy program is designed to prepare your child for kindergarten and encourage a love of reading.  Stop by the Katy Library for a special reading log, and ask us to help you pick out books your child will be sure to enjoy.
