The Wild Cat program held a standing room only audience captive on Monday. While Barbara told us about each of the four cats, Ron handled them and showed us their unique characteristics. If you would like to see the types of cats that visited us and learn more about them, go to We are very grateful to the Friends of the Library for providing the funding for our summer programs, and we hope to bring┬áthe Wild Cat C & E Fund┬áback next year for another program–don’t miss it!

India Costume Showcase June 2010

Early in June we enjoyed the Beauty of India, a costume showcase and cultural presentation by Induz, a non-profit organization that promotes art as a way to bridge cultural and economic divides. Induz motto is “where art meets heart.” We learned some facts about the 28 states of India during costume fashion show. Members of the audience had fun trying on costumes and being photographed. Special thanks to Castro Valley resident Ray Mitra, who orgazinized the event. More photos may be viewed in our Castro Valley Branch album in the lower left corner of this page. Learn more about Induz and see additional photos at
