Our neighborhood’s own Ella K. McClatchy Library, at 2112 22nd Street, will be offering a variety of workshops, children’s story times, and other events over the next three months.  Have a look:

Going Green in the Neighborhood – A series of workshops that has already started at the Library.  (Unfortunately this blogger missed telling you about the first one, on Solar Cooking, which took place on September 12–sorry.)  Upcoming workshops include:

Saturday, October 10, 1 -2 p.m.   Sustainable Landscape Gardening, with Dennis Dahlin – learn principles for designing your own sustainable garden, and get answers to your questions.

Saturday, November 7, 1 – 3 p.m.   Window Repair for Energy Efficiency.  Learn how to do window repair and window restoration, from local homeowners who have done it.

Saturday, December 12, 1 – 3 p.m.  Tour McClatchy’s Upstairs.  Visitors will be able to climb the stairs (in small groups) and tour the little-seen second floor of the E.K. McClatchy Library.  Visitors will also be able to make gingerbread houses downstairs.

As mentioned above, the McClatchy Library also has programs for children of all ages.  Some upcoming children’s events include:

Wednesday, September 30, 4:00 p.m.  “Things that Slither” with the Effie Yeaw Center.  Come see a varienty of live reptiles, amphibians and other critters, presented by a naturalist with the Effie Yeaw Nature Center.  This is a free program intended for school-age children.

Tuesdays, 10 a.m.   Preschool Story Time at the Ella K. McClatchy Library.  Join Miss Kati for fun stories, songs, crafts and more – for preschoolers, age 3-5.

Thursday, October 8, 10:00 a.m.  Jumpstart’s Read for the Record.  Join Eric Carle in a reading of “The Very Hungry Caterpillar,” and enjoy other fun activities as well – all to support early education.

Saturday, October 17, 2:00 p.m.  Lotions and Potions.  Teens – learn to make your own home beauty products, for yourself or to create as gifts!  (Also, please note the date for the next teen program – Saturday, December 5, 2:00 p.m. – “Marble Magnet Gifts.”)
