District 8 Councilmember Rose Herrera and the City of San José are inviting the public to take part in a groundbreaking celebration at the future home of the Southeast Branch Library, 10 a.m., Sat., Sept. 6, 4001 Evergreen Village Square (corner of Classico Ave. and Evergreen Village Sq.). 


The event will mark the initial construction of the system's final branch funded via the Branch Library Bond Measure that was approved November 2000 and allotted $212 million for construction of 6 new and 14 expanded branch libraries in San José.  Located on the site of the former Mirassou Winery and to be a key anchor in the Evergreen "urban village," the 16,000 sq. ft. building will feature architecture reflective of its surrounding structures and be the only branch library in the system to be located within a multi-use commercial and residential development. 


The Southeast Branch Library will be the second library in District 8 and complement the popular Evergreen Branch, 2635 Aborn Rd.  


In addition, the Library will host a hearing later in the fall where the public will have the opportunity to submit proposals to officially name the branch. Please see the City policy to name City facilities and download a proposal form

Maker Camp, Make: Google


Summer doldrums getting you down?  Feeling antsy?  Just been kicked out of your house for “accidently” setting the curtains on fire?  Are you just in the mood to build something cool?

The library’s Maker Camp is just the thing for you!


With help from Google and MAKE Magazine, we will be transforming the Educational Park Branch into a makerspace.  Every Monday through Thursday from 11:00 am - 12:00 pm, the library will virtually host some of the most interesting professional creators behind the scenes of game design, movies, and music. On Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:00 pm -1:00 pm, they’ll have the opportunity to create their own maker projects. 



Each week will have a different theme, with speakers and projects that will build upon it.


Week 1—Makers in Motion (July 7-11, 2014)

Week 2 —Art and Design (July 14-18, 2014)

Week 3—Fun & Games (July 21-25, 2014)

Week 4—Science & Technology (July 28-August 1, 2014)

Week 5—DIY Music (August 4-8, 2014)

Week 6—Make: Believe (August 11-15, 2014)


The event is free for all but children under 13 will need a parent or guardian with them to use Google+ or participate in the project.  Check out last year’s events to get an idea of what we’ll be doing this year.  And check out http://makercamp.com/ for more information.


Spaces are limited so sign up now.  Contact the Educational Park Library at 1-408-808-3073 to get your name on the list.
