Law Week honors the role of law in our nation; AmeriCorps Week recognizes AmeriCorps’ impact in communities across the country and acknowledges the contributions of its volunteers and community partners. This year’s theme, “Everyone Should Be Heard,” honors one of the fundamental principles of American law— defending the rights of the accused and everyone getting a chance to tell someone their side of the story.
I’ve never been sure what the “Z” in Andy Z stands for. Could be zany, because he’s definitely a little of that. It’s obviously not for zzzzz as in sleeping – Andy gets a group of children moving like few other children’s performers, capturing their imaginations and engaging all their senses. He’s shown here in a lively performance at Willow Glen Library on April 9. If you missed it, don’t despair… Andy will be at Vineland Branch Library on April 16 at 11 a.m., at Almaden Branch Library on April 20 at 11:15 a.m., and at Alviso Branch Library on April 23 at 3 p.m. All performances are free. Check out San Jose Library’s April Events Calendar for more details. To learn more about Andy Z and his unique brand of music, visit his website andyz.com.

On Tuesday, April 5th at 6:30 PM, the Edenvale Branch Library will present a program on disaster preparedness that takes a step back from real disasters by focusing on a "zombie apocalypse."
This is a great way to plan for those more earthly disasters like storms, earthquakes, and power outages with the added fun of pretending it's to keep away the zombies. We'll show families how to keep their kids involved in disaster planning by making it all about zombies.& Children and teens might not feel comfortable putting together a disaster plan while thinking of actual emergency situations. By putting the task in the form of a zombie apocalypse plan, valuable planning can be accomplished that can be used in any emergency situation.
This program will be repeated at other libraries.
