Reading Takes You Everywhere

Summer is on its way bringing with it all the summer fun of barbecues, summer vacations, swimming and the library's Summer Challenge. So put your feet up, relax and let a book take you on adventures to distant lands filled with fairies, robots, gods and everything in between.

Magic shows, cooking sushi, and learning how to draw comic book characters are just a few of the events that will be going on at library branches this year. You can find a list of all of the events for kids, tweens and teens at
http://www.fresnolibrary.org/summer/index.html.

Starting June 11, walk into any library branch and pick up your Summer Challenge log. The official kick off for the Summer Challenge will be held at Sunnyside Library on June 14, 11am-4pm.

Which event are you most excited for this summer?

Riverdale Spring Festival

Who doesn't love a good old fashioned parade? People get to pull out their lawn chairs, grab a spot on the road and watch the scene unfold. This year, lucky attendees of the Riverdale Spring Festival Parade got to see the DigiBus! The DigiBus loves to make community appearances.The Fresno County Public Library is a proud supporter of community building. Here are a couple of pictures before the parade began.
Remember, the library is here for you. What are your favorite parade memories?

Mobile Library at Sanger

Amid the threat of rain, WoW! was at the Sanger Branch Library on April 6 to  provide library materials to patrons while the branch is closed for renovations. During the closure, either the Bookmobile or WoW! will be at the Sanger Library Branch from 11 AM to 4 PM every Friday until June 8. 
Armed with portable chairs and a table, WoW! librarians Matt and Jessica set up a pop-up library in the library's parking lot. On the other side of the lot, renovations were fully underway inside the branch. A temporary book drop has been put up in the parking lot for returns.

Storytime with Santa

For the past few weeks, library staff has been hanging out with Santa on Wednesday mornings at Sierra Vista Mall for Storytime with Santa.

 
Santa has been kind enough to take a break from his hectic holiday schedule to give a storytime for mall-goers.  As it turns out, Santa is not only good at listening to what kids want for Christmas and posing for adorable pictures; he's also good at reading stories!  After Santa read a couple of books to a captivated audience, we invited everyone to do a holiday craft with us.


Along with the craft, we brought a pop-up library of winter and holiday books for people to check out, and we made library cards for those who didn't have one yet.

Children's Librarian Anna gives instructions on the  craft
WoW! Librarian Annika assists with the glue


 It was so fun to decorate popsicle-stick snowflakes and paper-plate Santas with everyone, and help parents pick out some books to take home.  Storytime with Santa was a success!


If you're looking for an opportunity to take a picture with Santa, check out this flyer to see when he may be coming to a library branch near you.
