Here we are at the end of June and the 4th of July is within sight! Hopefully, you have had a wonderful summer so far. No school pressures with the kids on summer vacation, maybe a little more time to relax, bbq or do whatever you enjoy , and just maybe a trip away from home. However, if going away is not in your budget, then check out things closer to home. A good starting place is your local library.
You can find out what’s happening at the library by either dropping in and talking to one of our friendly library staff or check our calendar on our internet web-site, http://www.aclibrary.org and go to events. You can choose to focus on events in a few ways: either by specific library or event, date or age level. As an example, on July 5th the Main Library in Fremont is showing the old-time movie”Yankee Doodle Dandy” if you need a chance to rest and cool-off from your 4th of July fun.
Alameda County Libraries offer events year-round, but if you are looking for a cure to the “I’m bored!” of summer, then check us out. You are sure to find something fun, educational or both at your library! And while you’re here, don’t miss a chance to sign-up for the Summer Reading Game “Read to the Rhythm.” We have games for all ages: pre-reader, kids, teens and adults. As with all of our programs, it’s free and fun. It’s a great way to keep reading going through the summer. We have cool prizes for everyone, so come check it out. Make the library part of your summer. And have a spectacular 4th!
