Katy ISD librarians work closely with teachers and administrators to develop engaging programs that enhance the overall educational experience on campus.</span></p><p>Libraries today are more than repositories for books and other resources. Often the heart of their communities, campuses or schools, libraries are deeply committed to the places where their patrons live, work and study. Libraries are trusted places where everyone in the community can gather to reconnect and reengage with each other to enrich and shape the community and address local issues. </p><p>First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries across the country each April. <a href="http://www.ala.org/news/mediapresscenter/factsheets/nationallibraryweek" style="text-decoration:underline;">Click here</a> for more information about National Library Week.</p></div>
