The month of March brings such promise. There are beautiful scents in the air, and sight of flowers blossoming in the ground and on the trees. Promise of warmth, but still cool/cold at night.
For the library, we celebrate the natural beauty *and* human creativity with Art IS Education month in March. We have a collaboration with the Alameda County Arts Commission and the County Office of Education to provide special art and craft programs for adults, teens, and kids, in addition to our regular art and maker programs.
Most branches will have a workshop for teens & tweens to make Creative Sidekicks.
Also, back by popular demand, a chance for the whole Family to Make a Book. See our whole booklet for over 300 events in all the branches.
March 1st and 2nd, especially, we children’s librarians (and teachers) celebrate Dr. Seuss’ Birthday in some locations. And we feature Dr. Suess’ wise and whimsical approach to early reading and storytelling with small and big themes of care for the environment, being yourself, trying new things, and respecting others.
There’s a lot to celebrate and experience in the Library. Come join us!
