The weather is heating up and it is time to dig out those swimsuits! On Wednesday, May 10 at 10:30 a.m. Lorrie Lynn, from Safe Kids San Diego, an affiliate of Rady Children’s Hospital, will be reading Josh the Otter Learns to Float, at a special water safety storytime. Bring your kids to learn about this important topic in a fun way.
Our beautiful library turns seven this month and we are celebrating! The party is on Saturday, May 20 from 1:30 – 3 p.m. We will have a performance by award-winning ventriloquist Marc Griffiths at 2:00. We will also have Pin the Tail on the Donkey, a special birthday I Spy, and cake provided by the Alpine Library Friends Association. You will not want to miss it!
Are you doing any spring-cleaning? Bring your unwanted clothes and accessories to the library and leave with a fresh new-to-you wardrobe! On Tuesday, May 30 from noon – 4 p.m. we are hosting a clothing swap sponsored by I Love a Clean San Diego. Items must be in good condition without loose seams, tears, or stains, and each person can donate up to five items. A clothing drive will start on May 23, in case you want to bring items in early. You do not have to bring in items in order to take some.
