If you were at the Fremont Main Library mid-afternoon on Saturday, November 10, in all likelihood you heard Gus Wedemeyer’s Three O’Clock Jump Big Band play music that made you feel like dancing. If you missed it, the performance is on You Tube as several postings. Here’s the opening portion. For future events at the library, make sure to check the library’s online calendar. Mark 2-3 p.m. Saturday, December 8, now so you won’t miss the Hillside Woodwind Quintet perform holiday favorites and classical melodies in the Fukaya Room.

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!

You may know all about the Summer Reading Game, but don’t forget to check out the weekly, free programs at the Fremont Main Library. The first program will be a ventriloquist, Tony Boders, with cool, crazy critters:
I look forward to seeing you at the library showcase in Fremont! Book early for summer.

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.
*Click on the picture on the left to see the program flyer.
|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!

Centerville held a 2-day Kids Library Camp on June 23rd and 25th. The registration was full in three days but the inquiries never stopped, even when the camp was already in session. Thirty-six kids in grades 4 to 7 attended and all left with happy comments like “It was awesome!”, This was a really fun camp. I want to do it next year!!!”, “This was so rad!” Wow!
Take a look of this video to see what kids were learning and the fun we all had. I tried to cover all the sessions in the order they were presented but had to leave out the exciting Contest. The pictures of the contest were deleted by mistake.
