Castro Valley kids are signing up for Summer Reading–so far, 675 have registered for “Get a Clue”! We have 105 Kid Power volunteers who are helping out with the signups, spinning and stamping and with a new Reading Buddies program. Reading Buddies volunteers are sharing their love of reading with younger children. They either listen to children practice their reading or read aloud to younger kids. Reading Buddies read together every Thursday this summer from 2:00-4:00pm.

We have an outstanding lineup of entertainers every Monday afternoon at 2pm. Dan Chan the Magic Man and Kat the Acrobat were here this week. Their magic show was fun-filled with juggling, acrobatics, mind-reading and the baffling rope escape in the photo. They are also training their dog, Papillon, who is only four months old, to do tricks. He showed us that he can already “high five” and jump through a hoop. Dan and Kat stayed after the show to teach some magic tricks to the kids who attended.  Funny man Bob Kann brings his “The Amazing Library” show here on Monday, June 25th. Be there!
