- May 31 - King Library Opens at 1:00 PM
First, the good news. Storytimes at Almaden Branch and other San José libraries will not occur during August. Why is this good news? The librarians will be taking a break from storytimes in order to re-charge themselves to offer even better storytimes in September and beyond.
Now, the better news! Almaden Library will offer these great storytime alternatives in August:
Reading to Children
Let your children listen to stories read by an experienced reader in the beautiful Children's Library at the branch. Your children can pick the books that they want to hear or can leave it up to the reader. This service is aimed at children up to age 12. No appointment is necessary — just drop in!
Our readers and the convenient times they read to children:
Stephanie — Wednesdays at 1:00-2:00 PM
Michele — Thursdays at 1:00-2:00 PM (Michele will be off on July 28)
Laura — Fridays at 1:30-2:15 PM
Christian — Saturdays at 12:00-1:00 PM (Christian will be off on July 30 and August 6)
What: Reading Buddies are trained teen volunteers that can either read to your child or help your child practice reading. Younger children can have 1-on-1 time with a caring, enthusiastic teen mentor who will help them practice their reading in a low-stress environment.
When: Every Wednesday at 5:30-6:30 PM in the Children's Library at the branch
Almaden Library storytimes will be back in September, and so will these great alternatives. Stay tuned to the Events Calendar, call the library for information at (408) 808-3040, or come in and pick up a print calendar.
