Another year has gone by. I’d like to share a video of the major events at our library in 2011. It was another busy year with many fun and/or educational family activities. The happy faces in this video make me feel rewarded and look forward to the coming year. Enjoy the video and have a wonderful 2012!

Lots are happening at Centerville Library in March! Besides two on-going reading programs–Read-With-Me and Read-To-Me, and the monthly Kids Book Club and Mandarin Parenting Class, we are also offering three special programs to make this month a very eventful one.

||Create a Tree Collage
Day: March 1 – 17
Time: Click on the picture on the left for public participation hours.
As part of the Art IS Education, an annual showcase of youth arts learning in Alameda County, kids, teens and their family are invited to stop by Centerville Library to create tree collages with old magazines, candy wrappers, shopping bags and other recycled materials. After it’s completed, the 3′ X 15′ project will be on display in the Children’s Area to honor this year’s theme–”Creating Soluntions for the World We Share”.
Day: March 1 – April 26, 2 P.M.
Time: Library Open hours.
The popular Library Bucks are back! Kids read library books to earn Library Bucks. The more your read, the more Library Bucks you earn! The more Library Bucks you earn, the better chances to win your dream prizes at the Kids Auction! The auction is scheduled at 3:00 P.M. on April 26, 2011. Small items will be for sale after the auction. A balloon artist will also be onsite making balloon figures for you to purchase. All sales are Library Bucks only.
Pick up a reading log and start reading, there’s no time to wait!
