The Creative Writing Workshop with Heather Vogel Frederick was a smash success!  The class was full and eager to learn more about the writing process.  They learned that inspiration is everywhere and perspiration is a job hazard for writers.  Many of the kids walked away with a signed book or bookmark and a new perspective on the craft of creative writing.  Rave reviews were bestowed on the writer and workshop by attending parents and participants.   

Many thanks to Heather, for bringing her fabulous workshop to the Castro Valley Library!

Return of the Legos @ The Castro Valley Library was a great success! We welcomed more than 150 kids and parents to build Lego spaceships and play. The kids came up with some great spaceship designs and even helped clean up (thanks!). Special thanks to the TRO volunteers from Castro Valley High School.

The next Lego play day is Tuesday, November 23rd from 3:00-4:00pm. Come Build a Bot with us!
