Rainbow Fun! In this special storytime , children will learn about Rainbows, Colors and Light through songs, stories, games, science experiments and crafts. Each child will also make their own rainbow! Join us for this educational and fun program in the Exploration Room at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library on Thursday March 29, from 4:00PM-5:00PM. The library has many books on rainbows and colors such as Rainbow of My Own, White Rabbit's Color Book and Colors. Here's a sneak preview of a music video by Mr. Ray that is part of this great program:
Ted the lovable bear is back in a new adventure called Artist Ted written by Andrea Beaty. In this new book Ted wakes up one morning and decides that everything around him is boring and needs some spiffing up. Ted proceeds to try and find an artist but when he can't he decides , of course, that he will be the artist - and the adventures begin! First, Ted discovers he doesn't have a brush or paints. What's a bear to do? No problem for Ted; a curtain tie makes a great brush and everyday household items like ketchup, mustard, jam,chocolate syrup and even toothpaste can make wonderful paints. Ted is "inspired" by white walls and a nice "white shirt" to the horror of his mother, principal Bigham and especially the new student in class Pierre. All ends well as it always does when Ted is on the job. Read Ted's other adventures in Doctor Ted and Firefighter Ted.
We had a fantastic Seussical Birthday Party at the King Library on March 2 because of the wonderful young ladies of the Sigma Omicron Pi Sorority of San Jose State University. These young ladies volunteered 2 hours of their time on a Friday afternoon and helped make the program the success it was. The girls set up the craft, the free book area and all the games; they manned the different stations and had a grand time interacting and laughing with the kids. It was wonderful to see and hear. They thanked us so much for allowing them to volunteer and have such a worthwhile experience. It was a win win for us all. This is just one of the ways people can volunteer at the library; it does not have to be a long commitment but just one afternoon, as these girls did, to give back to your community and help library staff put on a fun program. We could not have done it without the help of these volunteers. Our hats are off to them!
