Back-to-School Time

It’s almost back-to-school time, but we still have some fun events planned before then! Here’s what’s coming up in the next couple weeks at the library:

  • Tuesdays at 11 am, join our Beginning Computer Class. It’s a fun morning of learning how to use a computer!  In English and Spanish. For more information call 626-0180.
  • Let’s Rodeo!: This Wednesday at 3 pm, Poppa D. Clown will show us all the cool things that rodeo cowboys and cowgirls do. Try bareback riding, bull riding rope, barrel racing, and roping.
  • Adult Game Day: This Thursday at 2 pm, relax and play Dominoes or the card game “5 Crowns.” Adults only.
  • Lego Day: Every Thursday at 4:30 pm, use your imagination to build something great with Legos!
  • Every Friday, Play fun board and card Games at 1 pm! Followed by kid-friendly Movies at 2 pm—Popcorn and drinks will be served!
  • Back-to-School Party: This Saturday at 1 pm, play games, make crafts, and get some FREE school supplies!  Space is limited, so register on our website:     
  • Beginner’s 3D Printing Workshop: Monday the 21st at 6 pm. Do you have questions about 3D printing? Come to our beginner’s workshop to learn how to use the library’s 3D printer. We will walk through the process of finding a print-ready file online that you can print as is or alter to fit your needs. Sign up online at or at the front desk.
  • Recipe Swap: Tuesday the 29th at 6:30 pm. Bring something you’ve made (along with the recipe) to share and enjoy everyone else’s creations!  This month’s theme is “Garden Fresh.”

Since we are soon coming upon the time when kids will head back to school, I thought that I would recommend some good back-to-school books for young children.


Mom, It’s My First Day of Kindergarten! By Hyewon Yum – It’s a child’s first day of kindergarten, but who is worried about all the new people and the different things he’ll meet–the child? No! The mother. In a refreshing reversal of roles, the child takes it upon himself to comfort and reassure his mother that everything will be fine, she’ll get used to him going to big-kid school, and yes, he is ready for the first day of kindergarten.


Bear’s Big Day by Salina Yoon – It’s Bear’s very first day of school! He wants to be grown up, so he leaves his stuffed bunny Floppy at home along with all his familiar things. But being away from his best friend is hard–and the first day doesn’t turn out quite how like Bear wanted it to. Bear learns that the first day of school might not always be perfect, and being grown up doesn’t have to mean giving up the things he loves.


Tool School by Joan Holub, art by James Dean – Five independent little tools, including a hammer, screwdriver, tape measure, saw and pliers, meet on their first day of school, where they make puzzles and play games before discovering that a building project must be completed through cooperative teamwork.
