Hope you all had a great time participating in the Summer Reading Program and enjoyed your summer. In September, we will be transitioning to another exciting season at the library: Fall. When you think of "Fall", don't just think about the falling leaves - think about Halloween! Thanksgiving! and of course, Christmas! And so there will be many fun seasonal programs coming up at Evergreen library that you all can participate in.
For September, we need your help and assistance for the following programs:
The next teensReach meeting will be on Wednesday, September 19, 5pm-6pm inside the Community Room. Come and be informed about events happening at Evergreen branch library and get to know other teensReach members. Until then, enjoy the remaining days of summer sunshine!
On Thursday, June 21, 2012, teensReach volunteers (with the assistance of the staff) presented a fun puppet and variety show at the Almaden Branch Library. This program was part of the Summer Reading Celebration and was held in the large Community Room. The show's directors were Almaden Branch Librarian, Ed Koetitz and Pirjo Polari-Khan, adult volunteer (photo on the left). Opening the show were the colorful chicken and duck marionettes that danced and interacted with the children to their delight. A humoreous musical skit was presented called "Dog Rules" that detailed the rules that all dogs must follow. Featured at the end of the show, was the puppet play called "Mr. Eagle's Park," which was written by Irma Polari, Polari-Khan's mother, and tells the story of an eagle that takes over a park but soon learns that it's no fun to play by himself. Carol Rosen, Correspondant for the MercuryNew.Com wrote an informative article that can be found here.
Summer fun continues in July! Here are a few programs that you can all participate, besides the Summer Reading Program (these programs will take place inside the community room):
I also like to remind you all about fun contests and programs that you and your friends can check out!
