Women’s History Month:  Join the celebration of Women’s History Month with a great read.  We have books for adults, young adults and children which celebrate and recognize women whose achievements and courage have helped to create equality for us all.  In particular, we recommend these titles and others from our “Stand-Up Women” collection.  Donated by the San Juan branch of the American Association of University Women, these 37 titles acknowledge the contribution and power women have in making all our lives better. 

Our recommended list for this week:

1.  She persisted around the World: 13 Women who Changed History by Chelsea Clinton
2.  Women who Launch:  Women who Shattered Glass Ceilings by Marlene Wagman-Geller

National Library Week:  This year we are celebrating National Library Week (NLW) on Saturday, April 18.  At 10:30 am  Suzuki violin students will bring music to the library in honor of the NLW theme:  “Find Your Place at the Library.”  Join us after their concert for a complimentary feast of finger foods and baked goods.  (Want to earn community service hours?  Bake an item to earn three hours of service)

Coloring Books:  The March edition of our coloring book group will meet on Thursday, March 26 from 1 pm – 2 pm.  This free class is  led by our art teacher Cuca Torrech.  Cuca guides with tips about shading, use of pencils with water, and other approaches to the popular art of coloring books.  This class is ideal for teens and adults.  Coloring books are all the rage in local meeting spaces throughout the world.  It has been shown that this lovely form of expression brings calm, joy, focus, and a sense of contentment.  Questions?  Please call the library and leave a message for Connie.  She will return your call.
