Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskine by librarianmama

   Mockingbird by Kathryn Erskine

Imagine seeing the world in black and white and trying to navigate yourself through an unbelievable loss.  Caitlyn tries to do just that after losing her brother in a middle school shooting.  She struggles with Aspergers Syndrome and seeks the definition of closure as a way to recover from such a devastating loss.  Read a review below from a member of the Castro Valley Library’s Parent/Child Book Club:

I’d rate Mockingbird a 4.5 out of 5 stars. This book was touching, but it was very depressing for me to see what Caitlyn and her dad were going through. It’s nice to know how an autistic child actually feels and thinks. It is much different from the way I think and do things everyday. It was a good book and I learned that I should change the way I think about autistic people around me.

FEBRUARY LEGOS CLUB

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



Last Program of 2010! by librarianmama

We just finished up our last program of  the year and more than 150 people joined us!  Sulphur Creek came by to read with a screech owl, rabbit, tortoise and mice to enrich the storytime.  The kids had a great time listening and participating in the stories and touching some of the animals.  What an amazing group of volunteers who donate their time to Sulphur Creek!   Sulphur Creek Nature Center is a wildlife education and rehabilitation facility whose mission is to promote the conservation of local environmental resources by fostering an appreciation and understanding of the animals in the world around us, and encouraging peaceful coexistence between people and native wildlife by serving as a community resource for wildlife issues.  The Castro Valley Library will continue to host programs with Sulphur Creek in the New Year in our outdoor amphitheater.   Look for the Hayward Area Recreation Activities Guide for more information or contact the Library.  You can find Sulphur Creek on the web @ http://www.haywardrec.org/sulphur_creek.html

SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!
