3/16 Story Time/Craft, Update

Story and craft time:  Join us on Wednesday, March 16 for another story and craft time. Come and see what the ‘buzz” is about anytime between 10:30 am and 4:30 pm.  Children ages 3-8 will hear the story The Very Hungry Caterpillar and make a foam caterpillar, bumble bee, ladybug or butterfly.  

March is Women’s History Month. Celebrate  and recognize  women, girls and their stories of beauty, independence and strength.  We have something for everyone from our collections, including our American Association of University Women San Juan Chapter, our Arab American collection, books we purchased with funds from Picture Book Summit and our collection of autobiographies and biographies.

Book and Bake Sale to Go Results:  Thanks to everyone for joining us at our Book and Bake Sale to Go this past February.  We are very grateful for everyone’s support. Our event raised $240–$134 in booksales (and that’s at 50% of their regular low prices!) and $106 in bake sales from our six tried and true bakers!  If you missed their amazing treats, don’t worry, you will have another chance at our April 23 celebration of National Library Week.   

Reading Workshop/National Library Week:

Save the date for our April 23 celebration of National Library Week.  We will have a workshop with two authors from the publishing house Editorial Raíces.  Joining us that day will be children’s books authors Sandra Rivera (11 am with the book Los caballitos de mar se mudan de coral)  and  Mayra Leticia Ortiz Padua (1 pm with the book Luna musical).  Stay tuned for more details.
