Events at Altadena Library
In honor of Older Americans Month, the library features a Book-to-Action series of events relating to aging and to the book “Grandma Gatewood’s Walk” by Ben Montgomery, the story of Emma Gatewood, the only woman to walk the entire Appalachian Trail alone. Her criticism of the trail’s upkeep led to better maintenance, saving it from extinction. Read the book, then use its inspiration to volunteer for local service projects. In a related event, Camille Levee of Women at Work leads a class, “Rethink Possible: Getting a Job at 50+” from 10:30 a.m. to noon, free.
The whole family is invited to celebrate El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children's Day/Book Day). This year's celebration features special guest author and storyteller Antonio Sacre. Antonio will share touching, humorous bilingual stories and children's books including his own stories of growing up bicultural, and folktales from Mexico, Puerto Rico and Cuba.
The Lego Club meets the second Saturday of the month except in July and December. Legos are provided, just bring your imagination! Open to Children from ages 2 to 13. Duplo blocks will be available for children under 4 years of age.
The Second Saturdays event series launches at 7 p.m. with a Beatles sing-along and music performance by the Beatles tribute band Nowhere Men and food and drink available for purchase. The library will remain open during the event.
