- May 31 - King Library Opens at 1:00 PM
As both May and the end of the school year draw to a close, hopefully many of you are starting to think about spending the summer at a San Jose library near you. We are celebrating our annual Summer Reading Celebration at all SJPL locations with many events and reading incentives for kids, teens, and adults. Our theme this year is travel and world culture, and for the kids, we are exploring "One World, Many Stories", so why not join us at West Valley Branch Library for a unique display of a fascinating culture?
All ages are invited to join us on June 18 from 1-2pm as we kick off the start of the Summer Reading Celebration in the West Valley Library Community Room with Celtic Day, an exciting and free celebration of Celtic music, dance, food, and culture. The Friends of the West Valley Libraryand the South Bay Scottish Societyhave teamed up to offer a fantastic lineup of performers, including young dancers from the San Jose School of Highland Dancing, folk singer and guitarist James McWhirter, Scottish pipers and drummers, and more! You will also be able to sample an authentic Scottish dish. Bring the family!
In the meantime, you can practice your Scottish greetings RampantScotland.com if you'd like: May the best ye hae ivver seen be the warst ye'll ivver see.
