City of Katy Holiday Festivities

Get in the holiday spirit!  Start off the season this year by attending the City of Katy Annual Tree Lighting and Holiday in the Park event on Thursday, November 19 at 5:00 p.m. at Katy Heritage Park.  For more information, visit the City of Katy website.  The Katy Branch Library will have its own holiday event on Saturday, December 5 - more details later!

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.


Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on all the good things in life that we are thankful for.  At the Katy Branch Library, we have created a Thankful Wall.  Children may draw or write a picture of what they appreciate in their lives to display on our wall.  


Stop by the Katy Branch Library on Saturday, November 14 from 10:00 to 12:00 and greet the Reading Education Assistance (R.E.A.D.) dogs.  These dogs are specially trained to listen to young children read, and are particularly helpful to beginning and struggling readers.  Their trainers will be on hand to answer questions about their program.
