We enjoyed a great visit from Sulphur Creek this morning.  Deb and Carol brought a skunk, bat, barn owl and gopher.  The kids learned about echolocation and the wonderful services Sulphur Creek provides to injured animals.  Check out their website @ http://www.haywardrec.org/sulphurcreek.html.

Still a few more weeks of fun, fun, fun! by deniseqbaker

You still have a few more weeks to read, read, read and win prizes in the Summer Reading Game. This Monday, we will have Dan Chan the Magic Man and Kat the Acrobat, and our final performers for the summer will be the Fratello Marionettes with their “Carnival of the Animals” puppet show on Monday August 8th. Both programs start at 2pm.

We have had some fun performers in the past week or so, including Gary Lapow, Daffy Dave, and a special storytime visit from Theresa from Music Together. Watch this four minute highlight of their shows!

We enjoyed our last Berkeley Repertory Theatre Workshop this week with a Castro Valley version of Lemony Snicket’s, The Composer is Dead.  The kids had fun playing dead, violas, and their grand finale of the walking dead.  We hope to have Berkeley Repertory Theatre back for more workshops in the Fall.

We built em’ and raced em’ at the last Lego Club Play Date, and will meet again for free play on Thursday, June 23rd from 1:00-2:30pm.



Spring Break Bonanza! by librarianmama

We had a great Spring Break at the Castro Valley Library!  We started off the week with a visit from Sulphur Creeek, and a hands on Drummm program.  Monday we offered a Baby Sitting Workshop, had two movies later in the week, a Berkeley Rep Theatre Workshop for aspiring actors, a Preschool Storytime, Lego Club Play Day, and finished the week off with a Teen+Senior Video Gaming program.  We hope you had a great Spring Break, and were able to participate in some of the programs we offered.  Back to school next week, but summer is right around the corner and so is our Summer Reading Game.  The Summer Reading Game begins June 13th and the theme is One World, Many Stories.  Check out our Event Keeper for more information on the Summer Reading Game and other upcoming events.  You can also subscribe to our Event Keeper by using the RSS feed button in the middle of the Event Keeper page.

We had a blast today building anything our imaginations could create.  Boats, airplanes, cars, and any kind of truck we could think of.  Check out our gallery below and  join us next time!  We’ll be creating again on March 12th @ 1-2pm



Snakes at the Castro Valley Library! by librarianmama

Snakes weren’t the only reptile visiting the Castro Valley Library with the Coyote Hills Naturalist Program.  A lovely little box turtle named Shelby joined Fox the gopher snake to educate and entertain us.  The kids learned lots of facts about reptiles and shared their own knowledge with the Naturalists.  Special thanks to the wonderful Naturalists and docents with Coyote Hills Regional Park.  Be sure to check out the Naturalist’s calendar and visit them soon:  http://www.ebparks.org/activities/naturalists
