Summer events continue at county libraries

Special summer reading events in both Yolo County libraries in Davis continue the week of June 19. All events are free of charge and family-friendly.

“Come to the library this summer, to learn, to play, to meet new and continuing friends,” said Yolo County Librarian Patty Wong. “There’s something for everyone at your local library.”

An Alaskan Adventure program for families is planned at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 25, at the Montgomery Elementary School satellite library, 1441 Danbury St. in South Davis.

Sandy Holman, a local children’s book author/illustrator and director of the Davis Culture Co-op, will present “We All Have a Heritage: Many Cultures, One World” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 22, at the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis.

During this program, participants will be invited “to celebrate diversity, the love of reading and gifts we all share with the world,” a news release said. Participants will travel through the continents learning about different people, celebrating through music and dance, and honoring the written word while Holman shares her book, “We All Have A Heritage.”

Families are encouraged to attend.

Also at the Stephens Branch Library, a cartooning workshop, “Say It With Comix!,” will be offered at 2:30 p.m. Monday, June 20. Renowned comic artist Robert Armstrong will lead this workshop for ages 10 and up. Materials will be provided.

Beyond special events at Davis libraries, a variety of books may be borrowed and returned without a check-out system at three Davis public swimming pools this summer, during their open hours. The program started Monday and runs through Aug. 19.

Book bins are located near the snack bar at Arroyo Pool, 2000 Shasta Drive; Manor Pool, 1525 Tulip Lane; and Davis Community Pool, 201 E. 14th St.

Summer programs at Davis branch libraries are sponsored by the Friends of the Davis Branch Library and the Yolo County Library.
