Squish is an amoeba who first appears in Babymouse: Mad Scientist, written by sister and brother team Jennifer L. Holm & Matthew Holm. Squish also appears in his own series, starting with volume one, Squish, Super Amoeba. These kid friendly graphic novels are great for readers of all ages, especially elementary school students.

Like most parents, I have already signed up my children for the summer reading program. My soon to be second grader wants to know "what else is going on at the library where you work, Mom." While I jot down a list of fun things for her and her little sister to do at the Tully Library, I thought I'd share it with the rest of the parents in this community.
At the top of my list is the For Goodness Snakes program. I hosted this program last year and everyone was absolutely fascinated with these amazing creatures. It was wonderful to see both children and adults interacting with these fearsome looking, but quite gentle animals. This is one program that Natalie will not miss this year!
There are four more items on that list of mine. For my youngest daugher, I have the Music & Movement program to keep her entertained. I also include Monsters of the World just in case Natalie likes to be scared a little. For the family, the Kids in the Kitchen and the Spectacular Smoothie programs will be fun and educational at the same time. Hopefully, everyone will learn to make healthier snacks after these workshops.
If you haven't signed up for tons of activities for your children already this summer, please check out these fun and free programs at your local library.
The City of San Jose will hold an event at City Hall to offer services to homeless people in our community. The event will be on July 1, 2011 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. In addition to helping homeless people, the Department of Housing is looking for volunteers to help during the event. Please visit Project Homeless Connect to find out more.

What's that and how do you play? At least once or twice a year, the Family Learning Center at Tully Library offers these fun opportunities for parents to fine-tune their parenting skills and enjoy the whole experience while they are doing it. This year, the program will take place on Thursday, June 23 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM. How often do you have the opportunity to share your woes with total strangers and have the support and advice from people who may have the same experiences as you?
So, don't miss out on this opportunity! Come and join in the fun! We have prizes waiting to be won, courtesy of the Friends of the Tully Library.
