The Ella K. McClatchy Library at 2112 22nd Street, continues its historic tradition as a library for young people, with a couple of upcoming programs for teenagers and for children aged 5-12.
On Saturday, March 12 at 2:00 p.m., the Library will be hosting a Teen Program: Manga-Rama. Have fun creating a shoebox diorama from your favorite Japanese “manga” comic book. Will it be Ichigo and Rukia from “Bleach,” or Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura from “Naruto,” or Hikaru and Sai from “Hikaru no Go”…or something else? Shoebox dioramas are a simple, low-tech way to have fun bringing a story to life…and whether it’s a book or a “manga,” it’s all about experiencing the joy of reading.
On Wednesday, March 16 at 4:00 p.m., the Library is hosting kids ages 5 to 12 for “Uncle Jer’s Traveling Bee Show.” Learn about the physical characteristics of bees; the science of pollination; and honey production and harvesting. This should be a fascinating journey into the world of an insect we sometimes fear, but would have a hard time doing without.
Finally, on Tuesdays at 10:00 a.m., pre-school children are invited to the Library for Pre-School Storytime. Join Miss Kati for fun stories, songs and crafts.
For more information, please call the Library at (916) 264-2700.
