The Chinese New Year falls on January 26th this year and it is the Year of the Ox. Legend has that people born in each animal’s year would have some of that animal’s personality. Those born in ox years are obstinate, stable, fearless, patient, conservative, kind, hard-working and friendly. They tend to be engineers, painters, and architects. What animal year were you born in?

On Tuesday, October 28th, 2008, the Bilingual storytime children at Centerville Library had a great time parading and trick-or-treating in the library.  Look for the state bird–California valley quail if you can.  It was all little Felicia’s own idea.  She had planned for it for a long time, and made the costume mostly by herself!


On Thursday, October 30th, 2008, many fun and spooky Halloween stories were read to children during Read-To-Me while maintenance people were working on our roof making the loud “thump thump” sound and the heavy rain outside added even more effects.  The children didn’t mind but I was only able to record these stories after the roof repair was done.
